Estádio do Restelo, Lisbon

The home of CF Os Belenenses in the Lisbon district of Belem will play host to the 2014 UEFA Women's Champions League final on 22 May.

Capacity: 19,000
Opened: 1956

• In the Lisbon district of Belem behind the Jerónimos Monastery, the Estádio do Restelo is home to Liga club CF Os Belenenses and stages the 2014 UEFA Women's Champions League final.

• Opened in September 1956 with a 2-1 win for Belenenses against Sporting Clube de Portugal, the stadium could once hold 60,000 but has been reduced in capacity since becoming all-seater.

• Portugal played six friendlies at the stadium between 1980 and 2002, beating West Germany 1-0 in 1983. It was also Italy's UEFA EURO 2004 training base.

• The stadium is also a music venue with many leading rock bands having played there, including a Pearl Jam concert in 2000 later released as a live album.

• Founded in 1919, Belenenses' name means 'the team from Belem' and in 1945/46 they became the first side other than Sporting, SL Benfica or FC Porto to win the Portuguese Liga, something only emulated by Boavista FC in 2000/01.

• They also claimed three titles prior to the Liga's foundation in 1934, and have also won three Portuguese Cups as well as claiming a second Segunda Liga crown in 2012/13.
