UEFA

It is not the first time that a terrorist group has committed an attack, taking advantage of the large number of people who can gather in any stadium to enjoy, as may be the case, an event as important and of such magnitude as the Champions final. Because of this, it is not surprising that UEFA is concerned about this possibility.

To try to mediate in this regard, UEFA itself would have contacted the authorities of Wales, a country that will be in charge of hosting the final of such a prestigious European competition this year, for fear that any kind of terrorist attack with drones that can fly over Cardiff Stadium during the Champions League final.

At UEFA they are very concerned about the possibility of a terrorist attack with drones during the Champions League final.

One of the measures that the highest European body will take is to use a retractable cover, which is already used regularly in bad weather. On this occasion, it would be used to prevent any type of air attack, specifically what they propose is to cover the stadium during the match.

As you can imagine, today the alarm and security needs in this type of event have risen to unsuspected levels, especially if we take into account that just a few days ago the Borussia Dormund bus suffered a fair attack when the German team was going to play a Champions League match against Monaco.

If these types of actions are taken into account, imagine now organizing a match where it should be guarantee the safety of the 74.500 spectators who will attend the Champions League final on June 3. Among the data disclosed, it is expected that up to 15.000 people will participate in the security system, including police officers and external security members hired by UEFA itself.
