CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL
The CHAMPIONS LEAGUE football final will be held at the Cardiff National Stadium of Wales. Obviously at this time we don't know who will be playing
Real Madrid versus Juventus.
Cardiff is due to receive the bulk of Juventus fans but both Vuelling and Iberia flights are due to upgrade their scheduled flights. Bristol will see a large number of aircraft as well
Corporate activity is likely to be popular but no details are likely to be known prior to the day. Due to security concerns no information will be on this page but is likely to appear on the home page as it happens.
A further game that is due to take place in Cardiff is the final of the ladies European Champions League which is being held two nights previously
So June 1 2017 is the Ladies Champions League final being held at the Cardiff City Stadium
June 3 2017 is Champions League Final at the Wales National Stadium.
Cardiff Heliport will be involved with numerous helicopters being operated over the period of the events.
We will try and keep this page live with news events leading up to the game.
