Craven Cottage to host UEFA Final
 Women's Football News 25 Nov 2010
Craven Cottage to host UEFA Final - 25 Nov 2010 - Women's Football NewsUEFA today announced that Craven Cottage stadium, home to Fulham FC, will host the 2011 UEFA Women's Champions League Final on Thursday 26 May 2011.
The women's final takes place two days before the 2011 UEFA Men's Champions League Final at Wembley Stadium.
The announcement was made during the unveiling of the new visual identities, created for this season's UEFA Champions League finals at Wembley Stadium and Craven Cottage, at the launch event at Wembley, in the presence of 2011 UEFA Champions League ambassador Gary Lineker and current England and Arsenal captain, Faye White.
Representatives from UEFA, The Football Association, the Greater London Authority, Fulham FC and Wembley Stadium joined Lineker and White at the launch event this morning.
Craven Cottage follows in the footsteps of the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez, the home of Getafe CF, which hosted the first ever UEFA Women's Champions League Final in May 2010.
Alistair Mackintosh, Chief Executive of Fulham Football Club, is looking forward to welcoming the UWCLF to Craven Cottage next year: 'We are delighted to be hosting this season's UEFA Women's Champions League Final at Craven Cottage in May. Last season, the Cottage played host to some of Europe's most famous clubs during our magnificent Europa League campaign, and many prestigious international fixtures have also been played here over recent years.
"It gives everybody associated with Fulham great pleasure and pride that UEFA has selected our stadium to host this important game."
Potsdam won the inaugral title in May this year, 7-6 against Olympique Lyonnais in a penalty shootout after a match that remained goalless throughout 120 minutes of play.
Faye White is also delighted at the prospect of a London Final, she said: "It's great news that the women's final is coming to London. We've experienced playing in a European Final before and it would be unbelievable to do it again at a stadium like Craven Cottage, in front of a home crowd. We have a bit to do yet to get there but it's a huge incentive for both ourselves and Everton.
"2011 is shaping up to be a huge year for women's football with the Final at Fulham, the launch of the WSL and England playing in the World Cup, it's very exciting times for women's football in this country."
The logo design chosen for this year's UEFA Women's Champions League Final reflects continuity in the still young and fresh competition, launched only last season. The final design builds on the current season's look, adding a flavour of the final's host city in the form of the two London lions. As in the men's logo, the rampant lions represent the two finalist teams competing to become the Europe champions.
Arsenal and Everton are both through to the next stage of the women's competition, the quarter finals which will take place in March 2011.
