Venue

This is the first UEFA club competition final hosted at the stadium, and the first to be hosted by the city of Vienna since the 1995 UEFA Champions League Final at the Ernst-Happel-Stadion.[3]

The stadium is the home ground of Austrian club Austria Wien. Due to UEFA regulations regarding naming rights of non-tournament sponsors, the stadium will be referred to as the "Viola Park" in all UEFA materials, instead of the sponsor name "Generali Arena".

Host selection

An open bidding process was launched on 22 September 2017 by UEFA to select the venues of the finals of the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, and UEFA Women's Champions League in 2020. Associations had until 31 October 2017 to express interest, and bid dossiers must be submitted by 1 March 2018.

UEFA announced on 3 November 2017 that three associations had expressed interest in hosting the 2020 UEFA Women's Champions League final.[4]
