Argentina To Play Italy On June 1 At Wembley Stadium... Finalissima 2022!

Finalissima 2022:

UEFA have now confirmed Italy and Argentina will play at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday, June 1, as both teams emerged winners of the European Championship and Copa America.

This one-off tournament is considered a Supercup of sorts between the two biggest continental competitions in the world.

It was previously said it would be played at some stage in June in London, but the precise venue and date were not yet official.

Italy beat England at Wembley Stadium on penalties last year to win UEFA EURO 2020, while Argentina defeated Brazil 1-0 in the Final of the Copa America and were crowned the champions of South America for the first time in 28 years.

Tickets are expected to be going on sale on Thursday March 25, ranging from £25 (€30) to £99 (€119) per person, You can book your tickets online, via UEFA’s official website.

The Wembley seating capacity is that of 86,000 people.

This is not the first time such a clash has been scheduled, as it also happened in 1985 and 1993, when it was called the Artemio Franchi Trophy, or the European/South American Nations Cup. France won against Uruguay in 1985 and Argentina defeated Denmark in 1993.

It was revived this year as part of a renewed and extended Memorandum of understanding between UEFA and CONMEBOL on 15th December 2021.
