The 2016 UEFA Women's Champions League Final was the final match of the 2015–16 UEFA Women's Champions League, the 15th season of Europe's premier women's club football tournament organised by UEFA, and the seventh season since it was renamed from the UEFA Women's Cup to the UEFA Women's Champions League. It was played at the Mapei Stadium – Città del Tricolore stadium in Reggio Emilia, Italy, on 26 May 2016, between German team Wolfsburg and French team Lyon.
The final was a rematch of the 2013 final, won by Wolfsburg 1–0. This was the ninth successive final with at least one German team, and the sixth final in seven years between a French team and a German team.
Both teams had won the tournament twice. Wolfsburg won successive finals in 2013 and 2014, while Lyon reached four successive finals, winning in 2011 and 2012, but losing in 2010 and 2013, all facing German opponents.
