Marshmello will perform during the opening ceremony of the 2021 UEFA Champions League final, which will be presented by Pepsi (r) at Cardiff City Stadium on June 5. The announcement was made today by Uefa.
Marshmello is one of the most successful DJs in dance music, with more than 6 million followers on social media. He has won several awards over the years for his work including the Best Electronic Dance Album at this year's Grammys.
The Champions League final will be the conclusion to the current season's tournament and will determine the club who wins the most trophies after playing a series of match-ups over two legs. At the end of the season, Barcelona have won five out of six titles available, so they will be the favorites to win another title. Liverpool were able to beat them in the last round of the season 4-3 on aggregate score. In the other semi-final, Tottenham defeated Juventus 4-1 on aggregate score. The games were played over two legs and included an extra time period in the first game between the Italian team and Spurs. However, it was not enough to save Juventus from elimination.
This is the first time that Marshmello will be performing in Europe.
UEFA Champions League Final/Location 2021 Estadio do Dragao, Lisbon. The final will be held on June 5, 2021.
The UEFA Champions League trophy is an annual European football competition contested by the top clubs from Europe's top soccer leagues. It is the most prestigious club tournament in the world and the culmination of the season for each league. It consists of two parts: the group stage followed by a knockout stage (round of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals, final).
The UEFA Champions League trophy is designed by Spanish company Alfaguara and made by British company Silversmiths Studio. It was introduced in 1996 for the first season to replace the old Inter-Nationality Trophy which was won by Czech side Slavia Prague after a match against an international team. The new trophy also marked the beginning of a new era for the competition as it was decided that henceforth there would be only one final year round format throughout all tournaments including the UEFA Europa League.
In 1999, after much debate and criticism from many sides, including some UEFA members teams, the final was moved back to its original date of May 31.
The 2020–21 UEFA Champions League will be the 66th season of UEFA's elite club football event, and the 29th since it was renamed the European Champion Clubs' Cup to the UEFA Champions League. The final will be place in Istanbul's Ataturk Olympic Stadium. It will be the first time the final has been held in Turkey.
The record attendance for a European club match is held by Manchester United's match against Benfica on 15 August 1939. The game was played at Old Trafford with 76,000 in attendance. There are other matches that have drawn larger audiences, but they are all considered world records because they were attended by members of the same team or teams playing in the same tournament.
The most recent previous edition of the Champions League was won by Liverpool, who beat Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 after extra time in the final at St. Jakob Park in Basel. This was their sixth title overall and their second in a row.
Istanbul's Ataturk Olympic Stadium can hold 55,000 people in total and is one of the biggest stadiums in Europe. It has been used for various sports events including Olympics games. But it has never before been used for a sporting event of this magnitude.
The winner of the 2020–21 UEFA Champions League will earn €4 million ($4.4 million).
City of Leicester The 2021 FA Cup Final was a football match between Chelsea and Leicester City that took place on May 15, 2021 at Wembley Stadium in London, England. It was the final match of the 2020–21 FA Cup season. The match was necessary because Chelsea lost their own home stadium, Stamford Bridge, to damage caused by the extreme weather conditions during the previous year's Premier League season.
The match was contested by former club sides Chelsea and Leicester City. This is the first time these two clubs have met in an English cup competition since 1995 when Leicester won 1-0 at Filbert Street. Chelsea went on to win the cup that year with Diego Maradona scoring the only goal of the game in the 85th minute.
This is also the first time that both teams have qualified for the last 16 of the FA Cup since it became a knockout tournament in 1955.
Leicester were drawn against Northampton Town while Chelsea played Wolverhampton Wanderers. The winners of each tie would go through to the last 16. If the ties were still level after 90 minutes then extra time would be played where needed to determine which team goes through. If scores are still equal after extra time then a penalty shoot-out will be used to decide who advances.
UEFA Champions League final tickets are frequently available on UEFA's webpage as well as on the team's websites.
