The UEFA Champions League final is one of the most hotly anticipated annual sporting events in the world, and this year's clash between Pep Guardiola's Manchester City and Chelsea – two of the biggest teams in world football will take place on 29th May in Porto. The highly-anticipated match will be opened by a six-minute performance by EDM star.
The global superstar Marshmello will headline the opening ceremony which will be aired in more than 200 countries. The platinum-certified artist will kickstart the world's most-watched sporting event through a virtual six-minute spectacle using the latest in immersive technology.
The 2021 champions league final was originally scheduled to take place at Istanbul's Ataturk Stadium but was moved to Portugal on May 13th. The UK government had listed Istanbul on its "red list" of Covid travel destinations. This meant that fans from the United Kingdom would not have been able to attend.
