Wembley to host Champions League final again

6:14 am on 17 June 2011

Wembley stadium in London will stage the 2013 Champions League football final only two years after hosting this year's match between Barcelona and Manchester United.

UEFA president Michel Platini says the match has been awarded to Wembley to mark the English FA's 150th anniversary.

Platini, who in April apologised for the high cost of tickets at this year's final, said UEFA had also been impressed with the organisation at this year's match.
