ENGLISH FOOTBALL PARTY IN MADRID
It is known as the biggest match in European club football and the world had its eyes in Madrid when the UEFA Champions League Final between Liverpool FC and Tottenham Hotspur took place in the Estadio Metropolitano in Madrid on June 1st.
Thousands of fans were gathering at the hotspots of Madrid to experience the flair and the atmosphere of the UCL Final. And so did we! Central point of all GAZPROM fan activities took place in the Gazprom House of Champions at the UEFA Champions Festival, located on Plaza Mayor in the heart of Madrid. Fans could create their own Champions GIF in the Champions GIF tunnel, commentate a goal from their team from the semi-finals in the Gazprom super commentator or show the strength of their voice in the Gazprom Dribbling challenge.
Of course, we also raffled some last-minute tickets to the FINAL and therefor changed the lives of 6 lucky fans.
Apart from numerous football fans several football legends such as Andrey Arshavin, Anatoliy Tymoshchuk, Ricardo Carvalho or Célia Šašić visited the Gazprom hotspots on the UEFA Champions Festival. Right next to the House of Champions, the Final of Football for Friendship tournament, took place.
But you could feel the flair of the UCL Final also almost everywhere in the city of Madrid. Several influencers such as Freekickerz, the F2Freestylers or Gena Miller produced excited content about their experiences around the FINAL with Gazprom.
But the biggest moments of the night happened of course in the Final game itself where Liverpool FC crowned themselves Champions of Europe in 2:0 a win against the Spurs. It became a long night for all Reds fans: You could hear “You’ll never walk alone” more than just a few times in the streets of Madrid.
