The UEFA Champions League Fan Festival will be open from Thursday 8th of June to Sunday 11th of June and we’re lining up plenty of activities for you to try, such as the shot radar and the header challenge. Is your shot as strong as Erling Haaland’s, or can you jump as high as Lautaro Martínez?

Big prizes are up for grabs in the Fanzone at the UEFA Champions League Fan Festival in Istanbul. You can win UEFA Champions League vouchers, signed official merch, UEFA Champions League Fan Tokens, player boots or even tickets to the final. Imagine the atmosphere at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium! Read on to get a more detailed view of what’s up at the Fanzone.

Dates and timeline of events

With Manchester City and FC Internazionale locking horns on Saturday 10th June at 21:00, we’re building up the UEFA Champions League Final in style, with a whole flurry of events taking place from the previous Thursday. 

The Fanzone will be open during the below times, so get them into your calendar to join the fun: 

  • Thursday 8 June: 11.00 to 23.00
  • Friday 9 June: 11.00 to 23.00
  • Saturday 10 June: 11.00 to 19.00
  • Sunday 11 June: 11.00 to 22.00

The Fanzone challenges:

The Fan Zone is all about getting you closer to the game and in doing so, we’re setting you some challenges. Heading and shooting are two basic but vital parts of the game, but we want to see your skills. Do they match up to any elite footballers? Let’s find out, and if you manage, you’ll bag epic prizes.

Header Challenge: Elevate your passion 

Can you jump as high as the all-time greats? Test your vertical leap and win a game-used UEFA Champions League ball. Here, we’re looking for jumping height, so practice at home first by standing still, bending those knees and then thrusting upwards. Imagine trying to get your head on the ball in the box during a last-minute set piece, are you finding the back of the net after a super header?

Complete 5 headers to get the chance to win a signed pair of Riyad Mahrez’s boots.

Shot Radar: Unleash your passion and win

Do you have the hardest shot in Istanbul? Showcase your power and accuracy to win an Erling Haaland Signed Boot. Power and accuracy are two separate metrics, but when combined can be lethal! Some players enjoy a finesse style, placing the ball, rather than blasting it in. Others can do both, that’s why we feel that Erling Haaland’s boots are a fitting prize, because let’s face it, that Viking is half-robot after all! 

For this, we’ll write down the most powerful shot on a board for everyone to see. That also gives you a target speed to aim for so read it first before unleashing your hardest shot.

Photo Wall

This is slightly easier than the previous two. Simply capture your passion in a video or a photo and share it on social media using #LiveYourPassion for a chance to win a signed Lautaro Martínez or Kevin De Bruyne shirt. Two more incredible rewards for you, with the winners picked after a random draw.

Play with Turkey legends

On Friday 9th of June, three Turkey legends will be at the Fan Zone to play in a match with Fan Token holders. 

Nihat Kahveci, who won 69 caps for his country, joins Ümit Davala, Hami Mandıralı, and Tuncay Şanlı in a legendary side, and the 5-a-side match is expected to draw quite a crowd. 

After the game, they’ll also join us at the Fanzone for a good meet and greet with the fans in attendance. 

Win huge prizes including tickets to the final

Each day is stacked with giveaways, so take note of these to try your best to win: 

  • Day 1 – Thursday 8th June: 28 lucky winners will receive €100.00 UEFA Vouchers each.
  • Day 2 – Friday 9th June: 2 fans will score UEFA Champions League Final Tickets.
  • Day 3 – Saturday 10th June: Get a chance to own signed player boots with 5 exclusive giveaways.
  • Day 4 – Sunday 11th June: 5 Thomas Lyte UEFA Champions League bags will be up for grabs.

All you need to do is scan the QR code at the Fanzone and register with your email address. Once you do so you’ll automatically enter into the daily draw for the chance to win one of the prizes on offer. It’s as simple as that, you’re one click away from owning signed boots or official UEFA Champions League final match tickets.

Yes, four days of incredible fun, it really is a football festival in the heart of a beautiful city. Not only are we looking forward to a Champions League Final classic, but we’ve got activities galore planned for our amazing community. We’re bringing passion to Istanbul with our brilliant family.
