UEFA president Michel Platini wants the Champions League final to take place at the weekend rather than on a Wednesday night, he told reporters on Thursday. Platini, who took over as president of UEFA earlier this year said at a media briefing: "At the final in Athens in May I was astounded that there were no families and children at the match. This would change if it was played at the weekend." The Champions League, and previously the European Cup final, have traditionally been scheduled for a Wednesday night since the first final took place in 1956. I think, it's a good idea !!
