Munich named host of 2012 Champions League final

Munich named host of 2012 Champions League finalMembers of the Uefa Executive Committee announced yesterday (29th January 2009) that the Champions League final is to take place in Munich for the first time since 1997.

The news is a boost to German football with fans celebrating the anticipation of the final being played at the Allianz Arena in 2012.

Travelers planning to visit the German city for the soccer event should ensure they book hostels early to avoid finding themselves stranded with nowhere to stay or having to pay exorbitant prices.

Those attending the match will not be disappointed by the venue, which was completed in 2005 after a three-year €340 million (£314 million) project.

Allianz Arena is the home-ground of FC Bayern Munich, who have won the European Cup four times, and TSV 1860 Munchen.

Munich has a special resonance for football fans as it was at Munich-Riem airport in 1958 that eight Manchester United players were killed when their airplane crashed on take-off.
