Viola Park in Vienna has been chosen to host the 2020 UEFA Women's Champions League final.

The home of 24-time domestic champions Austria Wien – the 1978 European Cup Winners' Cup runners-up – Viola Park was previously known as the Franz-Horr-Stadion, having been named in honour of former Vienna Football Association president Franz Horr.

This will be the first major UEFA final held at Viola Park, and the first time a UEFA Women's Cup or UEFA Women's Champions League decider has been played in Vienna. The 2020 showpiece will also be the first major UEFA final in the Austrian capital since Ajax beat AC Milan 1-0 in the 1995 UEFA Champions League decider at the Ernst-Happel-Stadion. 

The decision was taken at Thursday's UEFA Executive Committee meeting in Kyiv.

The 2018 final takes place at Valeriy Lobanovskyi Stadium in Kyiv tonight from 19:00 local time. The 2019 edition will be staged at Budapest's Ferencváros Stadium; after nine years of being played in the same city as the men's UEFA Champions League final, usually two nights before the latter, the women's decider will have its own separate venue.
