European football’s governing body UEFA has picked the Puskas Arena in Budapest, home to the Hungary national team, to host the 2026 Champions League Final.

Reuters said the decision was taken after UEFA’s executive committee met in Dublin this week, where this year’s Europa League Final was held.

Construction work on Puskas Arena kicked off in 2017 and the stadium was opened in 2019. It is an all-seater venue with a capacity of 67,215.

UEFA said the decision on the venue for the 2027 Champions League Final has been postponed until September subject to the Italian football federation submitting information on refurbishment plans for the San Siro stadium in Milan.

UEFA also said the 2026 Women’s Champions League Final will be held at Oslo’s Ullevaal Stadion.

Ullevaal Stadion is an all-seater football stadium located in Oslo, Norway. It is the home ground of the Norway national football team, and the site of the Norwegian Cup Final. From its opening in 1926 to 2009 it was the home ground of FK Lyn and from 1999 to 2017 was a home ground of Vålerenga IF.

With a capacity of approximately 28,000, it is the largest football stadium in Norway. The national stadium is fully owned by the Football Association of Norway (NFF).

Meanwhile, a new bidding procedure will be opened to select the host of the 2027 Women’s Champions League final after Stuttgart’s bid was not considered due to Germany being awarded two other finals in 2026 and 2027, UEFA added.

Germany’s Stadion Frankfurt will host the 2027 Europa League final while the Europa Conference League’s 2026 final will be held at Leipzig’s RB Arena, also in Germany.

RB Leipzig has been playing its home games at the RB Arena since 2010. It opened in July 2004 and has a maximum capacity of 47,069

Istanbul’s Besiktas Park will host the 2026 Europa League and 2027 Europa Conference League finals.

Besiktas Stadium has a capacity of approximately 42,590 spectators, after initially being planned for 41,903. The stadium hosted the 2019 UEFA Super Cup.
