Berlin’s Olympic Stadium has been revealed as the venue for 2015 UEFA Champions League final, while the Europa League final for the same year will be at Warsaw’s National Stadium, which staged the opening game of Euro 2012 in Poland.
UEFA secretary general Gianni Infantino, after the declaration identified the stadiums as “two beautiful venues for our finals for 2015.”
The Europa League generates far less media attentions and income than the Champions League.
The present Europa Cup and Champions League holder Chelsea rued their absence from Europe’s elite and primary competition when some players claimed they just can’t get use to the Europa League anthem.
Teams who finish third in their Champions League group are relegated to the Europa League for the rest of the season.
Meanwhile, UEFA will on Friday announce whether the 2015/16 Europa League winners will be given a Champions League qualifying spot in the subsequent season.
The move will be designed so as to make the Europa League more interesting for participating teams.
The decision followed months of discussions between the European Club Association (ECA) and UEFA officials.
