Budapest’s new 67,000-seat Puskás Aréna will host the final of the 2022 Europa League club football competition, UEFA has announced.
The stadium opened in November and will host four matches during this summer’s UEFA European Championships national team tournament.
The first fixture at the stadium was an international friendly match between Hungary and Uruguay, which the visitors won 2-1. The venue is named after Hungarian football legend Ferenc Puskás and was built on the site of the former Ferenc Puskás Stadium.
UEFA also confirmed that the final of the Women’s Champions League will be held at Juventus’ Allianz Stadium in 2022, and at PSV Eindhoven’s Philips Stadion in 2023. The 2022 UEFA Super Cup will be held at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium, with the Kazan Arena to host the following year.
This year’s Europa League final will be held at Stadion Energa Gdańsk, with the 2021 match scheduled for the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán in Seville.
UEFA has already assigned hosting rights for the Champions League finals spanning 2021 to 2023 to Saint Petersburg’s Gazprom Arena, Munich’s Allianz Arena and London’s Wembley Stadium.
