• Viola Park was previously known as the Franz-Horr-Stadion, having been named in honour of former Vienna Football Association president Franz Horr.
• As well as Austria Wien, Viola Park has also hosted several national-team games at senior and underage level.
• The Austrian Women's Cup final has been played there five times, most recently in 2007.
• This is the first UEFA women's final in Vienna but the Austrian capital's Prater Stadion/Ernst-Happel-Stadion has hosted four European Cup finals (1964, 1987, 1990 and 1995), the 1970 European Cup Winners' Cup final, 1994 UEFA Cup final and UEFA EURO 2008 final.

AMBASSADOR: NINA BURGER
Prolific striker Burger first played for Neulengbach, remaining for all but one brief spell between 2005 and 2015, winning ten league titles and seven Austrian Cups, and finishing Bundesliga top scorer six times. With 40 goals in the UEFA Women's Cup/UEFA Women's Champions League (the first player to get that many for a single club), Burger ranks eighth all-time in the competition.
She had a brief spell in the United States with Houston Dash in 2014 and after returning to Neulengbach, in 2015 she left for Germany's Sand, where Burger spent the next four years of her career, twice reaching the DFB Cup final. She returned to Neulengbach this summer and resumed her position near the top of the scorers' table.
Burger retired from international football in the summer of 2019 after scoring 53 goals in 108 appearances for Austria, both records (for men or women). She helped her nation qualify for and reach the semi-finals of their first major tournament, UEFA Women's EURO 2017, scoring twice in the Netherlands and also converting in the last-eight penalty shoot-out defeat of Spain.
