Budapest’s Ferencváros Stadium has been selected to host the 2019 UEFA Women’s Champions League final, the first major international women’s final in Hungary, reports uefa.com.
After nine years of being held in the same city as the men’s UEFA Champions League final, usually two nights before, the women’s decider now has its own separate venue. Ferencváros Stadium, opened on the site of the former Albert Flórián Stadium in 2014, will be the first venue to stage a major international women’s final in Hungary.
Ferencváros Stadium is the regular setting for the men’s Hungarian Cup final and national-team home matches. Hungary has previously hosted the 2005 UEFA Women’s U-19 Championship.
The 2018 final will take place on 24 May at Kyiv’s Valeriy Lobanovskiy Dynamo Stadium.
The current competition is at the Round of 32 stage, with the first knockout ties on 4th October.
