When: 30th May - 2nd June 2024

Where: Various locations across London

Wembley Stadium plays host to the 2024 UEFA Champions League Final between Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund on the 1st June.

Having not hosted the final of Europe’s elite mens competition since 2012, London has come alive with free celebrations all throughout the weekend. Regents Street has turned into a promenade for all things football, including a presentation of the official Champions League trophy, EA Sports FC tournaments, Virtual Reality experiences, and of course a variety of street food and drinks.

Trafalgar Square has also transformed into a live concert venue, with Rudimental headlining the evening concert on the 31st May. Like Regents Street, Trafalgar Square also showcases authentic shirts from the teams that have appeared in the competition, as well as more great fan experiences.

Other fan experiences include:

  • Potters Fields Park: UEFA Champions League giant trophy, fun football activities and a fan shop

  • Somerset House: 5-a-side tournament between footballing legends including Luís Figo, Kaká, Roberto Carlos, David Silva, Cafu, Patrick Vieira.

  • South Bank: Team backdrops.
