The date of Saturday June 3 is set, now Real Madrid and Juventus supporters will begin the scramble to be in Cardiff, a Champions League final that is set to be massively oversubscribed given that both clubs will only be handed 18,000 tickets each.
Some 5,500 have already been sold on the internet and the rest will be for sponsors, UEFA, federations and teams participating in the competition.
The National Stadium is the official headquarters of the Welsh rugby team and for security reasons, the capacity at the final will be reduced to 64,000.
A meeting is scheduled to take place between the teams’ executives, UEFA and local authorities to finalise all of the details for the event, with Juventus having already been designated as the home team.
Prices range from 449 euros for the most expensive ticket, to just 69 euros for the cheapest.
Cardiff has two nearby airports and each team will be assigned one.
The cost for one night in a local hotel has soared to 3,000 euros, when their normal price isn’t above 200.
