The home of Sevilla FC was originally slated to stage the 2021 decider, but the UEFA Executive Committee decided to change the venue in line with the decision to hold the closing rounds of the 2019/20 competition in Germany.
The Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán Stadium will therefore host the 2022 showpiece, with the Gdansk Stadium in Gdańsk, Poland fulfilling the role in 2021.
In continuous use since 1958, the Seville arena staged games at the 1982 FIFA World Cup and was also the venue for Steaua Bucureşti’s 1986 European Cup final shoot-out success over Barcelona. It has a capacity exceeding 40,000.
