The Aviva Stadium will host the 2024 Europa League final as consolation for Dublin missing out on staging their four European Championships matches.
Uefa indicated that the Republic of Ireland would be given a match of consequence in the future to make up for the disappointment of having to pass up their Euros status.
Dublin was set to host three group games and the round of 16 tie which ended up featuring England and Germany.
But the organisers wanted guarantees on crowds that the Irish authorities were unable to provide so the matches were split between St Petersburg and London.
It was announced last night that the 2024 Europa League decider will be staged at the Dublin 4 venue.
This will be the second time that the final of the second most important club competition is staged on these shores with Porto defeating Braga in an all-Portuguese decider in 2011.
Uefa also announced that the 2025 Europa League final will be held in Bilbao which, like Dublin, was unable to host its allocated Euro 2020 games.
Istanbul’s Ataturk Stadium will host the Champions League final in two years’ time, after missing out on its scheduled hosting in both 2020 and 2021 due to Covid restrictions.
The original 2023 venue, Munich’s Allianz Arena, will now hold the fixture in 2025.
Next year’s encounter is due to be played in St Petersburg with the 2024 final remaining at Wembley.
