Champions League final 2021: What date is it, what time does it start and what TV channel is it on?

The biggest game in European club football is almost here, the Uefa Champions League final.

Four teams remain in the hunt for the trophy - Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Real Madrid - and we will know the two finalists on May 5.

If both Premier League clubs progress it would be the second all-English final in three years, after Liverpool beat Tottenham 2-0 in 2019.

PSG knocked out 2020 champions Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals, in a rerun of last year's final, and - like Man City - the French side are bidding for their first European Cup.

Chelsea won this competition for the only time back in 2012, while their head coach Thomas Tuchel was a beaten finalist with PSG last year. Real Madrid have claimed a record 13 European Cups - six more than any other club.

When is the Champions League final?

This year's final takes place on Saturday, May 29.

Where is it? 

The final will be held at Istanbul's Ataturk Olympic Stadium - the site of Liverpool's legendary comeback against AC Milan in 2005.
