Filmmaster Events and Circo de Bakuza to produce UEFA final opening ceremony

For the second consecutive year Filmmaster Events and Circo de Bakuza have been chosen as the companies responsible for producing the UEFA Champions League Final.

The show will be broadcast in 220 countries to a predicted audience of more than 180m and will feature pop star Alicia Keys.

“We are really proud of working with UEFA again, after the extraordinary success in Berlin last year,” said Antonio Abete, Filmmaster Events CEO. “This year’s show will be very different in shape and contents: it will be pure entertainment.

“The format is influenced by the Super Bowl, where sport and performance mix to produce an unforgettable show that captures million of viewers. This year we will work at home, in Milan, and this makes us proud. The presence of a big star such as Alicia Keys will let us do great things. We will not forget to pay homage to Milan in a stadium where champions from all over the world have played.”

The UEFA final will take place on 28 May at Milan’s Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
