Ten years after the "final dahoam" the final of the Champions League will be held again in Munich. The city was awarded the contract by the Uefa Executive Committee as the venue for the final in 2022. This was decided by the association in Ljubljana.

The final for the final 2021 got St. Petersburg with its World Cup arena. In 2023, the king class winner in London is named. The Uefa thus commemorates the opening of Wembley Stadium in 1923.

The final award had become a political issue. Originally, the decision for 2021 should fall already in May. But since neither Munich nor St. Petersburg should be snubbed as strong candidates, the Uefa also wrote out the finals for 2022 and 2023. Now both candidates and also London could be considered. Next year, the Champions League final will take place on May 30 in Istanbul.

Bayern had reached the 2012 home final. At that time, the team went against Chelsea first in the 83rd minute by Thomas Müller in the lead, but Didier Drogba equalized but still (88th minute). After Arjen Robben had missed a penalty in extra time Bayern lost the penalty shootout 3: 4. One year later they reached the final again, this time they won it: in London Wembley against Borussia Dortmund (2: 1).

No city was a frequent endgame location

In Munich, the Champions League final was held in 1997 at the Olympic Stadium. Dortmund triumphed surprisingly 3-1 against Juventus. The final premiere of the premier class in 1993 was in Munich, Olympique Marseille defeated AC Milan 1: 0.

In 2022, this is the fourth time a Champions League final has been staged in Munich, and no city has been a frequent endgame in the history of competition since 1993. If one adds the predecessor, the European Cup of Champions, London will come up with more events - in 2023, Europe's best club team will be played for the eighth time in the English capital.

The last final of the Champions League in Germany took place in 2015 in Berlin. At that time, FC Barcelona won 3-1 against Juventus. The Schalke Arena was the venue for the 2004 final between FC Porto and AS Monaco (3: 0).
