The 2014 UEFA Champions League Final will be the final match of the 2013–14 UEFA Champions League, the 59th season of Europe's premier club football tournament organised by UEFA, and the 22nd season since it was renamed from the European Champion Clubs' Cup to the UEFA Champions League. It will be played at the Estádio da Luz in Lisbon, Portugal on 24 May 2014.

The winners will play against the winners of the 2013–14 UEFA Europa League in the 2014 UEFA Super Cup, and also enter the semi-finals of the 2014 FIFA Club World Cup as the UEFA representative.

Venue[edit]

The Estádio da Luz in Lisbon, Portugal was chosen as the venue of the match at a UEFA Executive Committee meeting in Istanbul, Turkey on 20 March 2012.[2][3] It is the home stadium of Benfica since 2003, having been rebuilt to host matches in UEFA Euro 2004 including the final. The original stadium of the same name, demolished in 2003, hosted the 1992 European Cup Winners' Cup Final as well as the second leg of the 1983 UEFA Cup Final. The last time a European Cup Final was played in Lisbon was the 1967 European Cup Final, played at the Estádio Nacional. Lisbon also hosted the 2005 UEFA Cup Final at the Estádio José Alvalade, home of Benfica's local rivals Sporting.

Pre-match[edit]

Ambassador[edit]

Former Portugal international player Luís Figo, who won the Champions League in 2002 with Real Madrid, was named as the ambassador for the final.[4]
