Estádio da Luz – Stadium of Light
Estádio da Luz – Stadium of Light to House 2014 Champions League Final
The Stadium of Light, or Estádio da Luz, in Lisbon, Portugal will house the 2014 Champions League Final. Lisbon will host the exciting match for the first time since 1967. UEFA awarded the 2014 Champions League final to the Stadium of Light on Tuesday.
The new Juventus Stadium in Turin will stage the 2014 Europa League final, and the 2015 Under-21 European Championship will be played in the Czech Republic.
The 65,000-capacity Stadium of Light, the home ground of Benfica, was rebuilt before the 2004 European Championship and staged the final.
Stadium of Light is named after “Our Lady of the Light” (Nossa Senhora da Luz, or more commonly, Luz), which is the name of the Lisbon parish where the stadium stands. “Da luz,” or “of light,” is a common concept in Portuguese Catholic tradition, and basically translates as those “in the presence of God.”
