The European Champions and Copa America winners will battle it out for the trophy for the first edition of the event since 1993

Wembley Stadium will play host to an intercontinental clash that will see the champions of Europe go head-to-head with the South American champions this summer.

For the first time in 29 years, the top national teams of the two continents will battle it out for the CONMEBOL-UEFA Cup of Champions.

A Diego Maradona-led Argentina beat Denmark in the last iteration of the competition in 1993, and the Albiceleste have the chance to win it once again this year.

The contest sees the champions of Europe face their South American counterparts in a one-off showdown.

It was decided that the occasion would be revived this year after UEFA and CONMEBOL signed a new deal in September 2021 that would see the two bodies cooperate by sharing an office in London and hosting various football events.

The first of those events will be the showdown at Wembley between the champions of each continent.

The new agreement between CONMEBOL and UEFA will ensure there will be more editions of the clash between their respective champions, being held every four years.

The event will go ahead on Wednesday June 1, 2022.
