Prepping and packing
We want you to have a great experience at UEFA Champions League Final. To help, we have prepared our ultimate list of key tips to get you ready for the biggest match of the season.
1. 📱 First things first – make sure you’ve got your match ticket.
Don’t forget to bring your valid proof of ID, such as your passport (this should be the same as the information you provided in the ticketing system and/or the UEFA Mobile Ticket app).
If you have a mobile ticket, make sure you have it ready to go in the UEFA Mobile Ticket App and that you’ve transferred your tickets to the other attendees in your group well ahead of the match. For more information about tickets, please check out the Ticket FAQs.
If you have a paper ticket, make sure you bring it on matchday and keep it somewhere safe.
2. 🕤 Get to the stadium early – we mean it!
The city will be bustling leading up to the match, so getting across Paris and covering big distances will take extra time. Gates open at 18:00 and we want to make sure you're not rushing so you can soak in the atmosphere, grab food and drinks and enjoy this year’s opening ceremony presented by Pepsi with a star-studded performance by Camila Cabello!
3. 🎒 Gather the essentials.
Aside from the basics – ID, wallet, phone – make sure you check the weather, pack a small power supply for your phone, a bottle of sunscreen (up to 50 ml), and rain poncho if needed. Remember that any bags larger than A4 size won’t be allowed to enter the stadium so packing light is key.
4. 🏆 Join the fun and take part in the activities around Paris and Saint-Denis.
If you can, get to the city a day or two earlier to give yourself plenty of time to attend the Trophy Experience events. Come and play on the mini-pitch, take selfies, snap pictures with the official UEFA Champions League trophy and show your support for your club!
5. 🎟️ Remember you can only use the stadium entrance that’s on your match ticket.
Avoid the last-minute scramble and find your stadium entrance on the stadium map (available soon) to make sure you arrive at the right side of the stadium.
6. 🚫 Don't bring prohibited items.
Check the list and make sure you haven't accidentally packed any of the items mentioned. This includes umbrellas and professional cameras, as well as food and drinks.
If you’re bringing a flag or prop, remember that it must be a maximum size of 1.5m x 2.0m to be allowed into the stadium.
7. 🚇 There is no car parking at Stade de France.
We strongly recommend coming by public transport using either the RER train or metro. Both are great options! Check out our Getting to the stadium page for detailed guidance.
8. ♿ If you’re a disabled fan requiring support during your journey across the city or at the stadium, check out our Accessibility page for all the details to make your stay as seamless as possible.
Don’t forget to communicate any additional support you may need to your airline or train carrier before you arrive.
