The Champions League has now reached the semi-final stage and feature two mouth-watering ties, Liverpool v Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur v Ajax which are both two legged affairs being played over the next two weeks.
The winner of the first match will be favourites to win the Champions League, both clubs have had fantastic seasons whilst the other semi-final is contested by two teams who were not fancied to get this far but have played some fantastic football and defied the odds. Ajax were 250-1 to win the Champions League back in August and Tottenham Hotspur only gained one point from their opening three Champions’ League group games but turned it around claiming a draw in Barcelona and then defeating Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City in the knockout stages.
We have official Champions League hospitality packages to both these games although there is only very limited availability now.
The Champions League is the biggest club competition in world football bringing together the top teams from Europe and as one would expect the viewing figures are huge with people all over the world watching the games with the biggest viewing figures reserved for the final in Madrid on 1st June.
