We are just a few minutes away from the opening ceremony. I can feel your excitement!

will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas said: “We’re planning on harnessing the excitement of the fans in the stadium, and all those tuning in to the UEFA Champions League final. As football fans ourselves, we know how much this game means to those watching from the stands, their homes and with friends. This performance means just as much to us. We’re planning an unforgettable show.”

One of the most pleasing additions to what I packed for the match was to bring my continental plug adaptor. We may be in Britain but the press box is kitted out with two twin plug sockets. #takethatbrexiters

Both teams are down on the pitch. Small bit of mingling and man hugging going on. Of course, plenty of players who have been team matest before. Zidane, Higuain, Morata and Khedira have played for both clubs. Lots of international teammates too like the Germans Kroos and Khedira; Brazilian boys Marcelo, Danilo, Casemiro and Alves, Sandro; James and Cuadrado plus the Croatian boys Kovacic, Modric and Manzukic, Pjaca.

The Football Association of Wales confirmed in a statement on Friday that the decision to close the roof on the 75,000-seater venue for both the two official training sessions on Friday June 2nd as well as the final was made “following discussions between all stakeholders . . . and taking into consideration the recommendations made by the authorities over the last few weeks”.

 

The FAW added that “delivering a safe, secure and memorable event for all stakeholders, in particular the teams and the spectators, has always been the primary objective for both the Cardiff 2017 Local Organising Committee and Uefa.”

Not the first time I've been here. A decade ago I was here to watch an Ireland side managed by caretaker boss Don Givens draw 2-2 with Wales at the end of that awful Staunton era qualification period. #shudder

The Real Madrid team bus has arrived. They gave it the whole 'OJ in a bronco' helicopter coveraage for the last 15 minutes. They are coming into dressingroom now. Sergio Ramos looking sharp all suited and booted wearing brilliantly bright white trainers.

The trophy presentation will be on the pitch after the game. UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin  had this to say about the decision to do that. "The pitch is the player’s stage and it is only fitting that their achievements are celebrated there. It also makes sense that the officials should come down from the stands to the players – to their arena – and pay tribute to them in presenting the trophy and medals on the playing surface."

The extratime seat in the press box is to the right of the half way line towards the end of the stadium that is holding the many body of Juventus fans. The clubs got 18,000 tickets each and the capacity today is 65,576 below the 75,000 capacity. They loose seats due to the larger advertising hoardings. The first four rows at either end are not in use. They also put in a larger press box so they can accomodate the fourth estate.

The referee Felix Brych is down on the pitch testing the goalline technology. You might remember him from such fog affeted games as Bosnia v Ireland playoff! He also reffed the playoff between Ireland and France - no not "that" game - the first leg in Croke Park.
