Champions League Draws

Sporting Lisbon Estadio Jose Alvalade and Benfica Estadio da Luz will host the Champions league matches with the final to be played at Estadio da Luz.

The Europa League will be hosted in Koln’s RheinEnergieStadion, Duisburg’s MSV-Arena, Fortuna Dusseldorf’s Merkur Spiel-Arena, and Schalke’s Arena AufSchalke.

The final will take place in Koln’s RheinEnergieStadion.
