Chelsea vs Manchester United Champions League Final Venue

Chelsea and Manchester United are going to meet in a grand Champions League final of 2007-2008 on 21 May 2008. So, you can see that it is an all English final and it is expected a huge number of English fans are going to enjoy the match at the Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow.

Luzhniki Stadium is the biggest sports stadium in Russia with an all covered seating capacity of 84,745 and the stadium is part of the Luzhniki Olympic Complex, which was the prime venue of 1980 Summer Olympics Games. The complex was earlier known as Central Lenin Stadium. Because of cold Russian climate, the stadium uses an artificial pitch, a FIFA-approved FieldTurf pitch which was installed in 2002. However, Chelsea vs Manchester United final match will be held on natural grass. The stadium has some bitter past experience around a football match in 1982 during a UEFA Cup match. A disaster happened that resulted in death of many football fans. Officially it was reported that 66 people lost their lives during that match. However, according to other sources, the number of deaths was 340. We hope that an incident like that will not happen again in the stadium.

Recently, UEFA president Michel Platini visited Luzhniki Stadium ahead of the match. The legendary figure of football examined almost every part of the stadium himself along with other officials to make sure everything is right ahead of the match.

This is the first time two English clubs are going to face each other in a final of Champions League. So, there are some additional excitements among the English fans to see who are going to lift the trophy, if it is going to be the first Champions League success for Chelsea, or Manchester United is going to win the title for the third time in the history. Whatever, it is almost certain that an exciting match is waiting there at the Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow, Russia.
