Very good news for Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League Final.
The European Federation has granted Barça the right to use its home kit in the big game in Berlin, against Juventus on June 6. The Catalan giants were drawn as visitors for the Final, but because their main uniforms are totally different from Juve’s home jerseys, UEFA decided to let both teams wear their usual colors.
It will be the fourth straight time that Barça uses the Blaugrana kit in the European Cup title match, and they have won the title in all other three times. In 2006 against Arsenal, and in 2009 and 2011, both against Manchester United.
Barça’s website also announced today the schedule for the Champions League Final week, including travel time, interview and practice hours, and more.
Here’s the agenda:
- Berlin Arrival – June 5, 1 p.m.
- Luis Enrique and players press conference – June 5, 6:45 p.m.
- Open training session – June 5, 7:45 p.m.
