An historic year for football sees two English clubs in the Champions League final for only the second time – as well as two in the Europa League final for the first time.

Tottenham Hotspur are there for the first time after overcoming a determined Ajax in spectacular fashion, while Liverpool’s 4-0 demolition of Barcelona at Anfield turned the tide for the Reds. Against all odds, the trophy is coming to England via Madrid.

Here’s how to watch the Champions League final. 

When is the Champions League final? 

Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool is on Saturday 1 June 2019. 

What time is kick-off?

Kick-off is at 8pm UK time. 

What TV channel is it on in the UK?

How to watch the Champions League final if you are abroad

Some of these services are UK-only, but there’s a way to get around that if you’re away on holiday. A VPN is a piece of software that allows you to access geo-restricted content.

We recommend Nord VPN, the VPN that sits atop of our Best VPN article. Simply download it (for a small fee) onto your phone, tablet or laptop and watch the Champions League final via your BT Sport account.
