The annual UEFA Champions Festival 23–26 May will be the first major event to come to the home of the 2012 London Olympics since last summer, taking place on The International Quarter close to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
UEFA holds the festival alongside the Champions League final. Fans can visit the UEFA Champions League museum to experience all the memories of past tournaments and children can take part in a variety of skills clinics and coaching courses put on by professional coaches throughout the week.
Mark Dickinson, Managing Director of development at Lend Lease, said:
The International Quarter will become a vibrant new commercial hub for London. We are looking to attract early investment in the form of exhibitions and events this year and are delighted to work with organisations such as UEFA to ensure benefits from these events spread beyond their boundaries to communities in the surrounding areas.
