The UEFA Champions League final kicks off Saturday afternoon at Turkey’s 75,000-capacity Atatürk Olympic Stadium as Inter Milan looks to deny Manchester City its first treble — three major European trophies in one season.

Last Saturday, Man City defeated hometown rivals Manchester United in the FA Cup final after securing its third straight Premier League title in May. 

Inter Milan won two domestic tournaments — the Coppa Italia Supercoppa Italiana — but finished third in Serie A. The club has one treble of its own, accomplishing the feat in 2010, its last appearance in the Champions League final.

The winning club on Saturday will receive $21.51 million while the losers will take home $16.67 million. Those payments are in addition to the $55 million-plus each club has already won from other earnings throughout the Champions League tournament.

Man City is looking to become just the second English soccer team to win the treble, which was done by Man United in 1999.

With unparalleled success since City Football Group’s takeover in 2008, Man City currently boasts the highest brand value of any soccer club in the world at $1.6 billion, according to Brand Finance.

Winning the treble would boost Man City’s prestige that much higher as the club looks to continue dominating English and European soccer.

Saturday’s Champions League final will be broadcast at 3 p.m. ET on CBS and Paramount+, which are paying $250 million annually through 2030 for UEFA’s U.S. media rights.
