UEFA has released media details for the final of the 8th UEFA Women's Cup between Russian champions Zvezda-2005 and FCR 2001 Duisburg from Germany – the last matches in the competition before the launch of the new UEFA Women's Champions League in 2009/10.
The first leg will be played on Saturday 16 May at 19.45 local time (17.45 CET) at the Tsentralnyi Stadium in Kazan, with the return leg taking place on Friday 22 May at 19.30 CET at the MSV Arena in Duisburg.
