A representative of Kyiv City State Administration on holding the finals of the UEFA Champions League in Kyiv, Andriy Myroshnychenko, said this at a press conference at Ukrinform on Monday.
"We expect about 100,000 foreign guests during the Champions League week. NSC Olimpiyskiy seats 64,000 guests. Most of them will be foreigners," he said.
He noted that this event was complicated in terms of transport task, since most fans come and leave on the same day. According to him, 10,000 foreign guests will arrive on a charter flight on May 26 for the final match of the tournament.
Myroshnychenko recalled that the final of the Women's Champions League 2018 would be held on May 24. On the same day, according to him, the so-called "Festival of Champions" - a fan zone on Khreshchatyk, which will stretch from Bohdan Khmelnytsky Street to Independence Square - will open and operate until May 27.
