FC Bayern München is to apply to host the final of the 2021 UEFA Champions League final at its stadium, the Allianz Arena. Bayern’s bid will be submitted to UEFA by the German Football Association (DFB).
“I can confirm that FC Bayern, together with the city of Munich, will officially apply to host the 2021 Champions League final at the Allianz Arena,” announced Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, CEO of FC Bayern München AG. “Despite the disappointment of the defeat to Chelsea in 2012, we still look back fondly on the ‘Finale dahoam’ [final at home]. We would be very grateful if UEFA gave us the opportunity to again welcome the football world to Munich.”
The application documents must be submitted to UEFA by 15 February 2019, with the decision then being announced in spring 2019. Since the introduction of the Champions League, Munich has hosted the final three times in 1993, 1997 and 2012.
