    Why not? The champions league final has been held in Istanbul. I dont see why holding it in Scotland is a big deal. Murrayfield is a large stadium with a capacity of 67,000, why is it unrealistic?

    It's a leftover from when Hearts used the ground when Tynecastle failed to meet UEFA ground requirements, best guess is SI forgot to remove the stadium from the database.

    Was just about to post this.

    Just an oversight I would imagine.

    AFAIK it should be slated for removal from the FM13 database.

    Mind you, not as odd as in CM 01-02 where Canada gets the 2014 World Cup. Edmonton Commonwealth Stadium (capacity 8000) hosts the final.

    I don't see any issue with Murrayfield holding a Champions League final. It is a possibility (albeit small) in real life.

    That was a database error where the capacity should have been entered as 60,000 but was actually entered as 6000.

    Murrayfield has hosted football matches before. To my knowledge, Twickenham hasn't.

    I don't see anything odd about it.

    That's a relief. Thought I had imagined it for a moment there. I also remember in CM4 where Northwich Victoria's ground had a capacity of approx 1 million, thought that was a similar db error. But that's neither here nor there.
