Champions League Final 2019 in Baku?
The final of the royal class will take place in Azerbaijan next season. Only one more city is applying to UEFA for the final. The Champions League 2019 finals will be held either in Baku or Madrid, and UEFA announced on Wednesday that only the Azerbaijan and Spanish associations have submitted the necessary application documents for the final. Baku wants to bring the title showdown to the Olympic Stadium, Madrid is hoping for a final at the Estadio Metropolitano, future home of Atletico Madrid, and Baku has also applied for the UEFA Europa League finals, which Seville and Istanbul are also interested in. The DFB had withdrawn its application to concentrate on the candidacy for the European Championship in 2024. The UEFA Executive Committee will make a decision on September 9. Criteria such as freedom of the press and human rights will be included in the decision-making process for the first time, and the next Champions League final will take place in Kiev.
