- Story Text: The National Stadium of Wales will have its roof closed for security reasons on June 3 when it hosts the Champions League final.
The roof will be closed when Real Madrid face Juventus because of concerns of a drone attack.
Up to 170,000 fans are expected to travel to the Welsh capital and the Football Association of Wales said the safety was the main reason behind the decision.
It will be the first Champions League final to be played under a closed roof.
