The Conference League, the third European competition after the Champions League and the Europa League, reaches its final battle. Of the 32 teams that started the fight in the group stage, without counting the previous rounds, only two have reached the grand final. Italian Fiorentina and English West Ham. One of the two will be crowned the second champion in the history of the tournament.
The 2022/23 Conference League final will take place next Wednesday, June 7, 2023, starting at 9:00 p.m. at the Eden Arena in Prague. In addition to the trophy and a prize of 5 million euros, a place in the group stage of the Europa League next season is at stake on the Czech pitch. A very precious loot for both continents, since neither has obtained a ticket to play in Europe through their leagues.
