• A short distance from the Ullevi stadium, which staged several UEFA Cup and UEFA Cup Winners' Cup finals, Gamla Ullevi opened in 2009, replacing another arena of the same name.
• It was the venue for four games at UEFA Women's EURO 2013, including the opening match and a semi-final, as well as four 2009 UEFA European Under-21 Championship fixtures.
• Gamla Ullevi is the regular home of the Sweden women's national team as well as clubs GAIS, IFK Göteborg and Örgryte
• It will be the first time that a UEFA Women's Champions League final has been played in Sweden, but that nation was the venue on five occasions when the old UEFA Women's Cup was decided over two legs. Umeå's Gammliavallen staged the first leg in 2003, 2007 and 2008 when the home club reached the final, while in 2004 they hosted FFC Frankfurt at the Råsunda Stadium in Stockholm, whose Olympic Stadium staged Djurgården vs Turbine Potsdam a year later.
Who will contest the final?
Chelsea will be in their first final against 2019 runners-up Barcelona, ensuring that in the 20th season since the first UEFA Women's Cup, a new name will join the roll of honour that currently includes Lyon (7 titles), FFC Frankfurt (4), Umeå (2), Turbine Potsdam (2), Wolfsburg (2), Arsenal (1) and Duisburg (1).
