Women's Sport: UEFA announce venues for 2022 and 2023 Champions League finals

Juventus FC Women v Fiorentina Women's FC - Women Serie A

UEFA have announced the two venues that have been selected to host the 2022 and 2023 Women's Champions League finals. 

Both Turnin and Eindhoven will welcome the '22 and '23 finals respectively. The Juventus Stadium in Turin will host the final in two years time, whereas the PSV Stadium will follow suit one year after, hosting 2023 final. 

Both venues will conclude the first editions of the new UWCL format, in which we will see a 16-team group stage for the very first time starting in 2021. 

Turin's Juventus Stadium opened in 2011 and has a capacity of 41,500 which is a few thousand more than the current attendance record for a women's game in Italy. Just under a year ago, over 39,000 spectators watched a league game between Juventus and Fiorentina. 

For Italy, it will be their second time hosting a Women's Champions League final - the 2016 campaign concluded at Reggio Emilia's Stadio Città del Tricolore where Lyon beat Wolfsburg to be crowned Champions.

Although slightly less, the PSV Stadium still boats a healthy 35,000 capacity, first opening in 1910. 

The staging of a major fixture will be warmly welcomed by the Dutch, who is home to the current Women's European champions. The 2017 European championships held in the Netherlands was the beginning of what was to become a huge following for the Netherlands national team. 

In June of last year, an attendance record was set as over 30,000 spectators saw the Netherlands take on Australia in a friendly. 

This years final will conclude in Vienna, whereas next season will see the top two teams go head-to-head in Gothenburg.
