Where will you watch the Champions League final?

With only 62,500 fans able to watch tonight's final at the Fußball Arena München, UEFA.com wants to know where you will be watching the biggest game in European club football.

Only 62,500 fortunate souls will get the chance to watch the UEFA Champions League final at the spectacular Fußball Arena München tonight but with millions of fans the world over set to tune in to the big match, UEFA.com wants to know where are you watching it?

Franz Josef Strauss airport has witnessed hordes of Chelsea FC supporters flooding in from London, while Germany's autobahn network has already seen a procession of red and white Bayern München scarfs descend upon the Bavarian capital, in anticipation of seeing the country's largest supported club clinch a fifth European Cup on home soil.

Chelsea's 17,500 supporters, meanwhile, are already enjoying the Munich sun and the local hospitality as they hope their side can go one step further than four years ago in Moscow, when they lost out on a maiden victory in the continent's premier club competition by virtue of a penalty shoot-out in the final against Manchester United FC.

While those with tickets will hope for the memory of a lifetime, those following from home around the world will receive coverage befitting a match of this stature. Aired by 119 broadcast partners in more than 220 territories, with an anticipated average audience of over 160 million viewers and a total global reach in excess of 300 million, the game has the potential to be the biggest final in UEFA Champions League history.

The match will be produced in full High Definition with 38 match cameras including a spidercam and one up in a helicopter. For those lucky few, the contest will also be available in 3D, with 12 true 3D cameras following the action from temporary purpose-built stands.

Pubs and bars worldwide will be filled with spectators eager to watch the German and English sides battle it out to lift Europe's most prestigious club prize. We want to hear which country you are in and where you will be watching it.
