The UEFA Champions League is one of the world’s top club football (soccer) competitions. The prestigious European football club competition has hundreds of millions of fans worldwide tuning into these amazing, fiery midweek games. Then, at the end of May or the beginning of June annually, on an intense Saturday night in any historic European city, the two top clubs in the competition duel against one another in a final to determine who will be Europe’s best club. Just like the Super Bowl in the U.S., the Champions League final also has a Kick-Off Show that showcases the top headliners of the music industry today.
Alesso: Headliner of the 2023 UEFA Champions League Final Kick-Off Show
One of those headliners is the Swedish house music superstar Alesso, who just recently released his nostalgic progressive house banger, ‘Without You’. The 2023 Champions League Final Kick-Off Show, will occur before the anticipated matchup between Manchester City and Internazionale di Milano, has Alesso headlining alongside Brazilian pop star Anitta and Nigerian Afrobeats singer/songwriter/producer Burna Boy. Alesso has collaborated with Anitta before in the form of 2017’s hit single, ‘Is That For Me’.
What else to look forward in the show
The final will kick-off at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in the Turkish capital of Istanbul. For American fans, especially those who love EDM and football (soccer) equally, can catch the game at 12 p.m. PST/3 p.m. EST on TV (CBS for English and Univision for Spanish) and streaming (Paramount+ for English and Vix for Spanish). Regarding the UEFA Champions League Final Kick-Off Show, Pepsi organized a social media contest through the TikTok channels of Pepsi Global, Pepsi Max, and Burna Boy himself where fans can show off their dance moves and football (soccer) skills and win a trip to Istanbul to watch the final live. The final will be an exciting match between Manchester City and Inter but the Kick-Off Show will be one to not forget for football (soccer) fans who are also big music fans, especially fans of Alesso.
