We’re teaming up with UEFA for the third time

The Madrid Champion’s League is coming

Once again, we’re delighted to announce that we’re working with our friends at UEFA on the Champion’s League Final in Madrid this summer.

We first worked with UEFA on the biggest global sporting event when it came to Cardiff in 2017, producing the programme for the Champions Festival which attracted over 70,000 people to Cardiff Bay. We managed the entertainment for the Football Village in Cardiff Castle and the VIP celebration party hosting government heads and club presidents (by also working with five UEFA commercial partners across nine venues throughout the city!).

To top it off, we worked together on the final Kiev last year which included filming, design and print management, as well as delivering entertainment management.

Working with UEFA on this year’s Champion’s League final in Madrid is an impressive reflection of our international event capabilities, we’re proud to have been appointed to produce the four-day, multi-site UEFA Champions League festival in the heart of Madrid.

Orchard Head of Special Events, Dave Driscoll said:

“Our experience of working closely with the UEFA City Events Team over the previous two editions of the Champions Festival, in addition to years of experience in producing large scale outdoor entertainment events and festivals across a range of diverse sites, enabled us to secure this prestigious contract. It was great to be involved with the Champions League Final when it was hosted in Cardiff, and we’re proud that, as a Welsh company, we’ve continued to develop this international partnership with one of the world’s best-known brands.”
