Wembley to host 2013 Champions League final

London's Wembley Stadium will host the 2013 UEFA Champions League final it has been announced.

The decision to hold it at the venue twice in three years is due to the fact that UEFA's congress will be held in London in the same year as well as it being the Football Associations' 150th anniversary.

The decisions were passed unanimously by UEFA's executive committee meeting in Nyon, Switzerland.

UEFA president Michel Platini said: "There are always many candidates for the Champions League final and the Congress but this is to mark the special year of the English FA."

Wembley attracted 87,695 fans to last month's clash between Barcelona and Manchester United which the former won 3-1.
