Phuket, 14 May 2009 - Calling all football fanatics! It's time to get off your backsides and book your hotel accommodation for the UEFA Champions League Final in Rome on 27 May.  UEFA made football history when it announced plans to hold club football's most prestigious event in Rome, the cradle of western civilization and home to some of the world’s flashiest footballers.

What a chance then for Rome and Italy to remind the world that they are capable of, and to showcase not just the two best teams of 2009 playing for glory, but also the sprawling and beautiful metropolis of Rome. Viva Italia!
The Champions League Final takes place on the 27 May 2009, at the impressive ‘Stadio Olimpico’, which is also home to Serie A giants Lazio.

HotelTravel.com Chief Communications Officer Tom Racette said this year’s match is expected to fuel hotel demand in Rome because of the huge fan base of the two participating teams and the chance for cup glory.

“The stage was set in dramatic fashion early May with that incredible equaliser in the dying seconds of the semi-final. After 10-man Barcelona booked the Catalan giants a place in the final with Premier League stalwarts Manchester United put both sides on track to record a historic ‘treble’ of football titles in 2009.

“Fans of either side who make the journey will be delighted by the quality of the accommodation in Rome and value for money on offer from HotelTravel.com.”
