(Repeats to more codes)

NYON, Switzerland, Sept 18 (Reuters) - Milan’s San Siro stadium is to host the 2016 Champions League final, European soccer’s governing body UEFA said on Thursday.

San Siro will be staging the final for the fourth time, the previous occasion being in 2001 when Bayern Munich beat Valencia on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

It also staged the 1965 final between Inter Milan and Benfica and the 1970 final between Feyenoord and Celtic.

The 2016 Europa League final will be held at the St Jakob-Park in Basel, UEFA added. (Writing by Brian Homewood, editing by Mark Meadows)
