Atletico Madrid’s new 68,000 capacity Wanda Metropolitano stadium will host the 2019 Champions League final, European football’s governing body UEFA announced on Wednesday.

The 310 million-euro ($370 million) Wanda Metropolitano opened its doors for the first time on Saturday as Atletico beat Malaga 1-0 in La Liga.

Budapest will host the women’s Champions League final, whilst Azerbaijani capital Baku receives the 2019 Europa League final after missing out to Madrid for the main event.

The UEFA Super Cup between the Champions League and Europa League winners will take place at Besiktas’ Vodafone Park in Istanbul.
