Uefa has announced that Wembley is to host the 2011 UEFA Champions League final.
Munich’s Allianz Arena and Berlin’s Olympiastadion were also in the running but Uefa has opted for Wembley.
FA chairman Lord Triesman said: “We are delighted that Uefa has chosen Wembley Stadium to stage the Champions League Final in 2011.
“This is fantastic news for London and the UK and is acknowledgement of Wembley’s ranking alongside the very best football stadiums in the world.
“Wembley is a stadium for the big games and has a unique history that is sure to inspire Europe’s finest players.”
Meanwhile, Dublin’s Lansdowne Road has been chosen as the venue for the 2011 Europa League final – the new name for the Uefa Cup.
Munich will stage the 2012 Champions League final and Bucharest’s National Stadium the Europa League final in that year.
