Champions League final in Cardiff could be played under roof for first time ever

Date Posted,April 7, 2017

The Champions League final could be played under a closed roof for the first time this year.

UEFA will make the decision closer to the June 3 final at Cariff’s Principality Stadium, local organising committee officials told a Champions League media briefing on Friday.

The roof of the 74,500-capacity stadium has been closed in the past for Wales rugby internationals, but shutting it for European club football’s showpiece event would see UEFA break new ground.

There is, however, a precedent for a major football match being staged indoors as England played Argentina at the 2002 World Cup in Japan at the Sapporo Dome.
