GENEVA, Dec. 4 (Xinhua) -- The UEFA Executive Committee has appointed Albanian capital Tirana as the host of the first-ever Europa Conference League Final, the third-tier continental club competition set to begin next season.

The UEFA Executive Committee met on Thursday via video conference to decide the hosts for three international tournaments.

Tirana was picked as the venue for the first-ever final of the Europa Conference League, with the match to be played at the brand-new National Arena in the Albanian capital, which has a capacity of just 22,500.

Italy will stage the 2021 UEFA Nations League Finals, in Milan and Turin.

Semifinals are scheduled for October 6 and 7 before a third-place match and final on October 10.

Italy will play Spain in one semifinal in Milan's San Siro, with France and Belgium contesting the other at Juventus Stadium in Turin. The iconic Milanese ground is due to host the final.

Romania and Georgia have also been named as co-hosts of the 16-team European Under-21 Championship in 2023.

Matches will be held in four stadiums across Cluj-Napoca and Bucharest in Romania, as well as two stadiums in Tbilisi, one in Batumi and one in Poti in Georgia.
