UEFA is set to confirm Wembley Stadium as the host venue for the 2023 Champions League final next week, Sky Sports News understands.

The organisation’s president Aleksander Cerefin will also confirm that St Petersburg and Munich will be the venues for the finals in 2021 and 2022 respectively at UEFA’s ExCo meeting in Ljubljana next Tuesday.

Wembley 2023 will mark the centenary year of the opening of the original twin-towered Empire stadium in 1923, and it will be the eighth time Wembley has hosted the European final.

The 90,000-capacity arena last staged the final of the largest club competition in European football in 2013 when Bayern Munich defeated Borussia Dortmund 2-1.

Manchester United were also beaten 3-1 by Barcelona there in the 2011 final, with goals coming from Pedro, Wayne Rooney, Lionel Messi, and David Villa.

Cerefin will also announce the name of the new third European club competition to supplement the Champions League and Europa League.
