"As a huge football fan myself, I know nothing beats the UEFA Champions League!" That's why I'm thrilled to be performing on the Pepsi stage at this year's championship. Because music and football are the perfect match, you can bet I'll be bringing the vibes and creating magic in Istanbul. The world isn't prepared for what we have planned!" Burna Boy was quoted by UEFA as saying. 

The UEFA Champions League Final Kick-Off Show by Pepsi, now in its seventh year - formerly known as the UEFA Champions League Opening Ceremony - unites music, sport, and culture in a spectacular performance. The other co-headliner for this year will be announced soon.

We're excited to present a talented lineup of artists at this season's final in Istanbul in what will undoubtedly be an energetic and memorable performance."
