Estádio José de Alvalade has been chosen to host the 2025 final
Lisbon’s Estádio José Alvalade, the home stadium of Sporting Clube de Portugal, has been appointed to host the UEFA Women’s Champions League Final in 2025.
The announcement was made today by UEFA, the governing body for football in Europe.
Fernando Gomes, president of the Portuguese football federation (FPF), has celebrated the news.
“The decision to hold the Women’s Champions League final at Estádio José de Alvalade represents recognition of the organisational capacity of the FPF, as demonstrated previously in a series of events hosted by UEFA. I recall the Champions League finals in 2014, 2020, and 2021, as well as the Women’s Champions League final in 2014 at Estádio do Restelo,” said Gomes in a statement posted on the federation’s website.
“The fact that it is the final of the women’s competition also rewards the effort and investment that the FPF has made in the development of women’s football. It is a very welcome sign that complements all the promotion we have been doing in football for women, girls, and young girls, whom we want to see increasingly participating in this sport,” he added.
Barcelona is the current holder of the Women’s Champions League title thanks to a 3-2 win over Wolfsburg at Philips Stadion, home of PSV, in Eindhoven. The venue for the next season’s final will be San Mamés Stadium in Bilbao, Spain.
