Welcome to the Finalissima!

Football unity between Europe and South America is celebrated at this showpiece event. Italy and Argentina, the national team champions of their respective continental football confederations UEFA and CONMEBOL, meet in a spectacular encounter featuring two countries that have the beautiful game in their blood.

Finalissima: Who will be champion of champions?

The two teams thrilled millions of fans last year in winning their continental competitions, the UEFA EURO and the Copa América. They now line up against each other to contest the CONMEBOL-UEFA Cup of Champions – and there can be no more iconic arena than London’s world-famous Wembley Stadium to provide the setting for this extravaganza.

A wealth of footballing talent will grace a match that epitomises the long-standing close relationship between UEFA and CONMEBOL – a fruitful friendship forged through the joy and passion of football.

The Finalissima promises drama, excitement and suspense. Good luck to the two teams – enjoy the action and savour the memories of your stay in London!
