Maxi-pitches offer final legacy

We find out how UEFA is ensuring a lasting legacy for its major club finals.

The finals of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League are being marked each year by more than just the stars gracing the matches, with UEFA donating maxi-pitches to the host cities to ensure the next generation of young players get the chance to hone their skills too.
