About

The Champions League is the pinnacle of every footballer’s career. Where once young boys were growing up dreaming of walking up the famous Wembley steps to collect the FA Cup, a fantasy of following in the footsteps of Ronaldo and Messi to the UEFA Champions League is much more appealing. It’s the BILLION EURO GAME, watched by an estimated audience of 380 million people.

And once again we have a Final that, if the Semi-Finals are anything to go by, is going to be a real thriller; not to mention the most lucrative match of all-time. It’s the two midfield maestros going head to head - Iniesta vs Pirlo, Messi vs Pogba, and perhaps most intriguingly of all, it’s Luis Suarez up against a squad that includes old enemies Patrice Evra and Giorgio Chiellini. This is one match to get the blood flowing, and is the epitome of what Champions League football is all about.

From outrageous TV deals to huge sponsorship deals and ticket prices, both Barcelona and Juventus have already collected millions of earnings. However the biggest prize awaits them in Berlin - the Champions League trophy. The German capital will welcome the teams on June 6th, and it’s expected to bring in around €35million for the city - just a mere drop in the ocean of the €1billion surrounding the most exciting competition in football.

  • This year’s final brings two teams whose recent history couldn’t contrast any more. Whilst Barcelona were dominating Spain and the rest of Europe, winning no fewer than three finals in six years, Juventus were in crisis.

    The Italian giants found themselves at the very epicentre of the 2006 scandal – one that cost them their 2005 and ‘06 Serie A titles, a place in the Champions League, and demotion to Serie B.

    Nine years later, Gianluigi Buffon, a man who stuck by the club, returns to the very top in the greatest match of all; The Champions League Final.

    Sponsorships, attendance figures, prize money, and TV rights have all contributed to the biggest Champions League in history. Whether taking the trophy or slinking home, both teams will be mightily better off thanks to their impressive runs through the €Billion Champions League.
