The UEFA Champions League Trophy will be handed over by UEFA to the host city of Madrid at a special ceremony which will take place on Friday 16 April, from 13.00CET, at the Palacio de Cibeles, Madrid's Town Hall.

UEFA president Michel Platini will present the trophy to the mayor of Madrid, Alberto Ruiz Gallardón, for the city to keep and display to the public until this season's UEFA Champions League final is played at the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu on Saturday 22 May (20.45).

The president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), Ángel María Villar Llona, the president of Real Madrid CF, Florentino Pérez Rodríguez, together with the ambassador for this year's final, former Spain striker Emilio Butragueño, and representatives of last season's European champions FC Barcelona, will be among the renowned personalities attending the event.
