However, the Allianz Arena in Munich was assigned the 2023 final.[2] This is due to the postponement and relocation of the 2020 final because of the COVID-19 pandemic, When the 2021 final, which had been scheduled at Istanbul, also had to be relocated due to COVID-19 pandemic in Turkey, the 2023 final was given to Istanbul instead. Munich will now host the 2025 final.[3]
