Madrid was hosting the 2019 UEFA Champions League final. Part of the final is the UEFA Champions Festival, a yearly event taking place in the UEFA Champions League final host city in the days surrounding the game. The UEFA Champions pitch was installed at the Plaza Mayor, supplied by AstroTurf and installed by our partner AFF Sports. And to be honest; the setting was magnificent!
During the four days event the pitch was used for the Special Olympics and the International federation of CP Football. The UEFA Champions League legends played a five-a-side tournament on Friday. And on Sunday, fans had the opportunity to take penalties blindfolded in conjunction with the International Blind Sports Association, while there were also be games involving the Homeless World Cup and the European Powerchair Football Association. All being part of the UEFA´s #EqualGame campaign.
It was fun, passionate and high entertainment; we are honored being part of this great sports event in the beautiful city of Madrid!
