UEFA has announced that the Champions League final in 2015 will take place in Berlin's Olympic Stadium.

The Europa League final in 2015 will take place in Warsaw, UEFA general secretary Gianni Infantino told a press conference in London.

It was also announced that decision on whether the winners of the Europa League will qualify automatically for the Champions League will be taken at the UEFA Congress on Friday.

The move would be aimed to boost interest in Europe's second tier tournament.

UEFA's executive committee, which discussed the issue, also ratified a decision that players and officials found guilty of racism will have a 10-match minimum ban from next season.
