The Millennium Stadium in Cardiff will host the Champions League final in 2017, Uefa has confirmed.
The executive committee of European football's governing body convened in Prague for a meeting which touched upon on a variety of subjects, including the appointment of club competition final venues in two years' time.
Cardiff has long been reported to be among the frontrunners for the 2017 Champions League final and the Millennium Stadium was confirmed as host by UEFA general secretary Gianni Infantino on Tuesday.
Newly-elected Fifa president Sepp Blatter said he will not forget the "hate campaign" launched against him by Uefa, who have led calls for him to resign.
Uefa president Michel Platini personally asked Blatter to resign over the corruption scandal, and appealed for members to vote him out at yesterday's closely watched election battle.
Blatter told Swiss TV station RTS
It is a hate that comes not just from a person at Uefa - it comes from the Uefa organisation that cannot understand that in 1998 I became president." Asked if he would forgive Platini.
I forgive everyone but I do not forget.
He suggested the timing of a police swoop at a Zurich hotel on Wednesday, when seven Fifa football officials were arrested in connection with decades of alleged rampant corruption and fraud, was "an attempt to interfere with the congress."
He added: "I am not certain but it doesn't smell good."
David Gill has confirmed he will not take up his role on the Fifa executive committee after Sepp Blatter was re-elected as President.
As I explained to my European colleagues at the Uefa meeting on Thursday, I will not be taking my place on the Fifa Executive Committee. Out of respect for the Fifa Congress and the other 208 member associations, it was right to wait until after yesterday's election to confirm my decision.
This action is not something I take lightly but the terribly damaging events of the last three days have convinced me it is not appropriate to be a member of the Fifa Executive Committee under the current leadership. I do recognise that Mr Blatter has been democratically elected and wish Fifa every success in tackling the many troubling issues it faces. However, my professional reputation is critical to me and I simply do not see how there will be change for the good of world football while Mr Blatter remains in post.
I will continue to focus on my positions within The FA and Uefa, which I take seriously and am privileged to hold.
Uefa president Michel Platini reiterated his desire for change within Fifa as he congratulated Prince Ali Bin al Hussein for his "admirable campaign".
Platini, who said he had asked Blatter to resign as Fifa president before the election, said, "I am proud that Uefa has defended and supported a movement for change at Fifa, change which in my opinion is crucial if this organisation is to regain its credibility."
"I congratulate my friend Prince Ali for his admirable campaign and I take the opportunity to thank all the national associations who supported him."
A fans' group which is suing Uefa over financial fair play rules says it will not withdraw its legal action until there is a "complete change" to the key regulations.
Uefa's president Michel Platini has confirmed changes to financial fair play (FFP) rules will be made later this month.
But the group, named The Association of Angry Fans against Financial Fair Play, which is taking action along with more than 100 Paris St Germain fans in the French courts says merely easing the rules is not enough.
There are more than 10 legal actions taking place against Uefa over FFP in several countries.
A statement from the group welcomed Platini's announcement that the rules would be eased - understood in order to allow more owner investment in clubs - but said:
We nonetheless do remain vigilant. Our fight goes on. We shall not accept a mere easement of the current rules. We advocate for a complete change of some the key provisions of FFP, in particular, the refusal to take into account loans or equity investment in a club's revenues for purposes of break-even requirements.

Michel Platini will be Uefa president until at least 2019 after being elected unopposed for a third term.
The divisions between Uefa and Fifa president Sepp Blatter have grown after a report into reform proposals was watered down.
German magazine Der Spiegel claims criticism of Blatter by independent governance committee chairman Mark Pieth was removed from his final report by FIFA's legal adviser Marco Villiger.
Pedro Pinto, a spokesman for Uefa president Michel Platini, said: "The latest revelations regarding the Pieth report show that Fifa's independent governance committee was anything but independent.
"Uefa has always wondered why it was criticised by Mr Pieth and wrongly accused of blocking Fifa reforms. Now we understand why and where it all came from."
