In the hours following the final of the Coupe de France on May 7, between Nantes and Nice, the lawn of the Stade de France will be scalped in 48 hours. A tarp will then be put up to welcome the spectators of the Rock’in 1000 concerts on May 14 and Indochina on May 21. The new lawn will be laid on May 24 and 25 to host the Champions League final on May 28 and therefore meet the standard of the most prestigious European club competition.
As a reminder, the Champions League final was originally scheduled for this season in Saint Petersburg. But due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, UEFA was forced to relocate the European poster. For the first time since 2006 and the meeting between FC Barcelona and Arsenal, France, and therefore the Stade de France, will host this game.
“UEFA would like to express its thanks and gratitude to the President of the French Republic, Emmanuel Macron, for his personal support and commitment to bringing the most prestigious match in European club football to France at a time of unprecedented crisis. “, thanked UEFA last February.
