The Principality Stadium's roof will be closed for the Champions League final
Gareth Bale will return to his homeland with Real Madrid to take-on Juventus at the renamed National Stadium of Wales on June 3.
The decision has been made after increased security measures were put in place amid concerns drones could be used as part of a terrorist attack.
An FAW statement read: “Delivering a safe, secure and memorable event for all stakeholders, in particular the teams and the spectators, has always been the primary objective for both the Cardiff 2017 Local Organising Committee (LOC) and UEFA.

“Over the course of the past 24 months, comprehensive plans have been drawn up to ensure that this objective is successfully delivered – the security operation for the four-day period covering 1 to 4 June will be the biggest ever seen for a sporting event in the UK.”
The Cardiff showpiece will be the first time a Champions League final has been staged under a closed roof.
It will also be closed for the two official training sessions to be held at the stadium on Friday 2 June.

“Cardiff has a proud history of successfully delivering some of the World’s major sporting events, and the Cardiff 2017 LOC remain confident that this year’s two UEFA Champions League finals will be the biggest and best to date.”
