Comments Off on Wembley pitch fit for Champions League

Wembley Stadium held its second successful Champions League final last weekend. The pitch was the same one that had previously held the FA Cup final, various FA finals and the playoffs for three divisions of the Football League. The pitch was redesigned and renewed two years ago when a Desso Grassmaster system was installed. Lisbon’s Stadium of Light will host the Champions League final in 2014 and the Berlin Olympic Stadium has been awarded the honour for 2015.
