Wembley Gets Nod For Champions League Final

2901_wembley.jpg As we predicted last year, the national stadium will get to warm up for the Olympics by hosting the 2011 European Cup final. It will be London's first such final since the Barcelona-Sampdoria game of 1992, in an era when English teams, post-Heysel, had only just been allowed back into continental competition. Considering the Champions League success of domestic clubs in recent years, there's a good chance that, come 2011, one of the Premier League's giants might get the chance to win the trophy on home soil. Not such good tidings for Arsenal, though - Wembley's success means that the Emirates Stadium won't be permitted to host the UEFA Cup Europa League the same year. (Photo / Daveybot)
