Women's football: Chelsea to host Champions League final

Lyon win 2012 UEFA Women's Champions League

Chelsea's Stamford Bridge ground will host the Women's Champions League final in 2013.

The 41,000-capacity stadium will stage the event on May 23, two days before the men's Champions League final at Wembley.

Fulham's Craven Cottage hosted the final in 2011.

Uefa general secretary Gianni Infantino said: "The home of the men's 2012 Champions League winners is the ideal venue to host this prestigious event."

French club Lyon won the trophy in 2012, when the final was held in Germany.

Arsenal Ladies play the second leg of their last-16 tie against Germany's Potsdam on Wednesday.
