WHITE FLASH 5.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) UEFA PRESIDENT, ALEKSANDER CEFERIN, SAYING: "As much as we know two countries in the world don't allow women and girls to watch football.

We cannot punish anyone if they play against it.

It's out of our jurisdiction, it's FIFA's jurisdiction.

But that doesn't mean we should be quiet and say we can't do anything and we develop European football, so our advice to 55 associations and all the clubs and, this year representatives were here, will be not to play there or with the teams from those countries where the basic rights of women are not represented.

And the representatives of clubs and representatives of leagues agreed with us.

They stated that at our meeting." STORY: St.

Petersburg, Munich and Wembley Stadium in London will host the three Champions League finals from 2021, European football's governing body UEFA said on Tuesday (September 24).

Istanbul in Turkey is already scheduled to hold the final of the 2019/2020 campaign on May 30 at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium.

The 2021 final will be the second to be staged in Russia after Moscow hosted Manchester United's penalty shootout win against Chelsea at the Luzhniki Stadium in 2008.

Munich hosted Chelsea's victory over home side Bayern in 2012 while Wembley will take charge of Europe's premier club final for the eighth time.

Wembley will in 2023 be celebrating the 100th year since the opening of the original stadium in London.

Seville will host the 2021 UEFA Europa League final while Belfast will host that year's Super Cup.

UEFA President, Aleksander Ceferin, also announced after the meeting of the UEFA executive committee in Ljubljana, Slovenia, that the governing body warned members not to play games in countries where the rights of women to watch games were not respected.

Ceferin also revealed the challenge of organising a Euro championship tournament across the continent, as will happen at Euro 2020, is unlikely to take place further in the future due to the logistics and visa issues involved with organising such an event.
