The Women’s Champions League final is just around the corner. FC Barcelona and Lyon will compete next Saturday at six in the evening to be crowned the champion of Europe’s biggest club competition.

San Mames Stadium in Bilbao, with a capacity of over 50,000 people, will host the final. This will be the third time the women’s Champions League final is held in Spain, previously taking place in 2010 at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez in Getafe and in 2020 at the Anoeta Stadium in San Sebastián.

UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin mentioned in a letter to all fans that “an electric atmosphere is expected when the finalists take the field.” He also expressed gratitude to the Real Federación Española de Fútbol for its hospitality and effort in hosting this final.

“Two teams are about to add a new chapter to football history by lifting the trophy,” added Čeferin, who also noted that a new format for the women’s Champions League will debut in 2025, along with the launch of a second European club competition after it was confirmed that FIFA is already considering the 2027 World Cup.


FC Barcelona will play as the home team in the final. Jonatan Giráldez‘s side are the current European champions and seek to win their second consecutive final, aiming to become the third club to win more than two titles, following Lyon and Frankfurt. Stars such as Aitana Bonmatí, Alexia Putellas, Salma Paralluelo (Barça’s top scorer in the Champions League), Caroline Graham Hansen, and Patri Guijarro will be on display.

The visiting team will be Lyon. Ranked second in the UEFA standings behind Barça, the French team holds the most women’s Champions League titles with a total of eight. They have previously defeated Barça in a final, winning 4-1 in 2019 and 3-1 in 2022. Jonatan Giráldez’s team will need to be wary of aerial balls, as defender Wendie Renard rarely misses, and top scorer Kadidiatou Diani is also a threat.


The trophy, which stands 60 cm tall and weighs around 10 kg, is made of silver. The spiral arms and central body convey a sense of dynamism and strength. The central column is engraved with the names of the winners.

The original trophy is only used for the official ceremony and remains in UEFA’s possession at all times. The winning club receives an exact replica and 40 gold medals, while the runner-up receives 40 silver medals.


Barça fans’ fanzone will be located on Paseo Eduardo Victoria de Lecea, near the San Mames metro station, offering fans bars, restaurants, green spaces, and a shopping center.

The French zone will be at Plaza Indautxu, situated in the heart of the city. The square is a central hub connecting various shopping and entertainment areas, with a metro stop right in the square.


Approximately 190 media outlets will be accredited, including print media, photographers, TV, and radio. For those who couldn’t get a ticket for the final, UEFA has designated DAZN as the provider. For this final, DAZN has removed its paywall, making it available for free viewing.
