Champions League final at Wembley Stadium between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

As one of the most watched annual sporting events in the world, over 250 million fans will be tuning in to their televisions, while you could be there in the Principality Stadium (formerly Millennium Stadium) in Cardiff, watching as the best two teams in Europe battle it out for the coveted trophy in all of football: the European Champion  Cup.

Last years winners Real Madrid will be looking to retain the trophy which has eluded even the greatest teams in Europe, so it will be a great achievement if they can do it. With stellar names in their team such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Wales own footballing hero Gareth Bale, they stand a good chance of doing this.

However they will have to contend with other great teams such as their rivals Barcelona, Athletico Madrid and Bayern Munich who are all recent past winners of the trophy. It promises to be another exciting final, whoever makes it.

A symbol of football excellence for decades, only a handful of clubs have won more than once and with 32 teams qualifying for the tournament, the world will be eagerly waiting to see which team will walk away with this elusive trophy.

I was fortunate to attend the Champions League final at Wembley in 2013. It was a fantastic occasion and the atmosphere was electric before during and after the game. I would definitely recommend attending this final for an amazing footballing experience.

STADIUM GUIDE 

The Millennium Stadium is the national stadium of Wales and the third largest stadium in Britain. The stadium was built to host the final at the 1999 Rugby World Cup and replaced Wales’ previous national stadium, the Cardiff Arms Park, which by that time had gotten severely outdated and lacked the facilities to stage such final.

Construction of the Millennium Stadium began in 1997 and was completed in 1999 at a total cost of £114 million. The first match played at the stadium was a rugby friendly between Wales and South Africa. The first football match was a friendly between the Welsh and Finnish national teams in March 2000.

During the reconstruction of Wembley Stadium, the Millennium Stadium hosted the FA Cup and League Cup finals as well as the FA Community Shield. In its first decade, the stadium was the standard playing venue of the Welsh national team, however with declining attendances and smaller modern alternatives available in the Liberty Stadium andCardiff City Stadium, the Welsh team played most of its Euro 2012 qualifying matches at one of these smaller stadiums. The stadium has a fully retractable roof, which can be opened in 20 minutes and is being held up by four 90-metre high masts.
