champions league final hits wembley in 2011.

Wembley has been chosen to host the 2011 Champions League final.

European governing body Uefa selected the stadium ahead of Munich's Allianz Arena and Berlin's Olympiastadion.

The news had been expected after Uefa delayed its decision to allow the UK Government to bring in a tax exemption for players appearing in the final.

Dublin's Lansdowne Road has been picked to host the 2011 final of the Europa League, previously the Uefa Cup, as Arsenal's Emirates Stadium missed out.

The Gunners' home ground was ruled out of the running because the same country cannot host both major European finals in the same year.

The Champions League final was last hosted by the UK in 2003 at Old Trafford.
