The 2015 UEFA Champions League Final will be the final match of the 2014–15 UEFA Champions League, the 60th season of Europe's premier club football tournament organised by UEFA, and the 23rd season since it was renamed from the European Champion Clubs' Cup to the UEFA Champions League. It will be played at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin, Germany on 6 June 2015.[1]

The winners will play against the winners of the 2014–15 UEFA Europa League in the 2015 UEFA Super Cup, and also enter the semi-finals of the 2015 FIFA Club World Cup as the UEFA representative.

Venue[edit]

The Olympic Stadium was announced as the venue of the final at the UEFA Executive Committee meeting on 23 May 2013.[2]

The current Olympiastadion was originally built for the 1936 Summer Olympics in the southern part of the Reichssportfeld (today Olympiapark Berlin). During World War II, the area suffered little damage. After the war, the British military occupation used the northern part of the Reichssportfeld as its headquarters until 1949. From 1951 to 2005, the Olympischer Platz had a giant antenna transmitting for all the portable radios in Berlin. Aside from its use as an Olympic stadium, the Olympiastadion has a strong footballing tradition. Historically, it is the ground of club Hertha BSC since 1963. It was also used for 3 matches in the 1974 FIFA World Cup. It hosted six matches, including the final, in the 2006 FIFA World Cup and was renovated for that reason. Since 1985, the German Cup final match is held each year at the Olympiastadion.
