From 21 to 28 May fans will be able to take part in a variety of football activities, from skills sessions with legends, to having their photo taken with the UEFA Champions League Trophy.

The festival will also incorporate a Theatre of Champions; an audiovisual display of the most glorious moments in the League’s history; and the Museum of Champions, featuring exclusive club and player memorabilia.

As a prelude to the Wembley final, a team of local legends and a star-studded selection of former internationals will go head to head in an Ultimate Champions Match.

"The UEFA Champions Festival will give everyone the chance to experience exactly what makes the UEFA Champions League the pinnacle of European club football," commented UEFA Champions Festival ambassador and Chelsea FC legend Graeme Le Saux.

"There is something for everyone at the Festival so whether you’re looking for a family day out, school trip or a visit after work with colleagues, head down to Hyde Park and take home your very own UEFA Champions League memory," he added.
