• The Colovray Sports Centre stands opposite UEFA's Swiss headquarters in Nyon on the shores of Lake Genava. UEFA took over management of the stadium on 1 April 2010.

• Nyon sits at an altitude of 406m and has a population of about 16,000. In winter it provides a base for winter sports enthusiasts. It is also a summer tourist hot spot thanks to its warm climate, lakeside activities, chateaus, Roman museums and music festivals, which attract the best European bands.

• Opened in 1991, the sports complex is home to Stade Nyonnais from the Promotion League, Switzerland's third tier.

• The stadium staged the 2004 UEFA European Women's Under-19 Championship final and from 2008 to 2013 hosted the four-team WU17 EURO as well as other UEFA-organised friendly tournaments.

• The Women's U17s is now an eight-team event with varying hosts, but in 2014 the stadium was designated the venue for the first UEFA Youth League final tournament, also a four-sided knockout, a status it has retained.
