The biggest European soccer competition in a 12-day event in Portugal. Lisbon’s Estádio da Luz, the home of Benfica, will host this year’s Champions League final on Sunday 23 August 2020.
Commonly known as the Estádio da Luz, home of 37-time Portuguese Benfica national championships.
The Benfica stadium, with an over 65k capacity, was also extensively rebuilt to host big international games, such as the final of UEFA EURO 2004, and more recently staged the 2014 UEFA Champions League final.
According to UEFA news, here are some details about the event:
All these ties will be single-leg fixtures. The games will be split between Benfica’s Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica (which will host the final) and Sporting CP’s Estádio José Alvalade.
A decision is pending on whether the remaining round of 16 second legs will take place at the home team’s stadium or in Portugal. The Estádio do Dragão in Porto and the Estádio D. Afonso Henriques in Guimarães will host the four outstanding second legs if required.
