Cardiff’s National Stadium of Wales will host the UEFA Champions League Final 2017 on June 3rd
It’s the biggest club football match on the planet and the most-watched annual sporting event, pulling in a TV audience of up to 300 million fans in 200 countries – that’s around three times as many as American football’s Super Bowl.
And for Cardiff and Wales, it’s another brilliant opportunity to shine under a global spotlight, following our successful hosting of major international events like the Ryder Cup, NATO summit and Rugby World Cup.
The 2017 UEFA Champions League Final takes place in the home of Welsh rugby in front of a capacity crowd of 74,500. Built to host the 1999 Rugby World Cup, it’s the second-largest covered stadium in the world, with a proud track-record of hosting major events, including the FA Cup Final for a six-year spell from 2001 to 2006 while Wembley Stadium was being redeveloped. Not only that, but the UEFA Women’s Champions League Final will take place at Cardiff City Stadium on Thursday, 1 June.
