Adidas Finale Wembley
The 2013 UEFA Champions League Final will be the final match of the 2012–13 UEFA Champions League, the 58th season of Europe’s premier club football tournament organised by UEFA, and the 21st season since it was renamed from the European Champion Clubs’ Cup to the UEFA Champions League. The match is scheduled for 25 May 2013 at Wembley Stadium in London, England, England’s national stadium and home of the England national football team.
The winners will play against the winners of the 2012–13 UEFA Europa League in the 2013 UEFA Super Cup, and also enter the semi-finals of the 2013 FIFA Club World Cup as the UEFA representative.
Wembley Stadium was announced as the venue of the 2013 final on 16 June 2011. Having hosted the 2011 Final, Wembley will make history for being the first stadium in the tournament’s history to host the Final twice in three years. Discussing the short time between the two finals, UEFA President Michel Platini explained that the final will be in celebration of 150 years of the Football Association’s existence. It will be the seventh occasion that Wembley will host the final after hosting the 1963, 1968, 1971, 1978, 1992 and the 2011 finals of Europe’s premier club competition.
