ITALY – Filmmaster Events and Circo de Bakuza together again for the UEFA Champions League 2016 Final Ceremony
For the second consecutive year, both the companies put their signature on the event that opens the eagerly awaited final scheduled for 28th May in Milan. For the first time a guest star is expected: Alicia Keys, in collaboration with Pepsi. The show will be broadcast in 220 countries with an estimated audience of 180 million people, a figure that makes it one of the most watched sporting events of the year.
For the second year in a row, the Italian Filmmaster Events in partnership with the French-Canadian Circo De Bakuza is in charge of the creation of the spectacular opening ceremony of the highly anticipated Champions League final, which will be held on 28th May in Milan.
The partnership between two of the most important event agencies in the world will create a ceremony that this year, for the first time, will see the participation of the pop star Alicia Keys, presented by Pepsi.
A complex and exciting show, even from the point of view of production: performers, dancers and stage machinery will come on and off the playing field in 9 minutes, leaving it intact for the match between the two finalists.
Filmmaster Events and Circo De Bakuza will also sign the ceremony of the women’s final, that will take place on 26th May in Reggio Emilia.

This year the show is changing and becoming a real moment of entertainment. A format that gives a nod to the Super Bowl, where sports and entertainment unite for an incredible result that gathers millions of TV viewers”.
