2014 UEFA Champions League Final
Date: Saturday, May 24, 2014
Venue: Estádio da Luz at Lisbon
Address: Lisbon, Portugal
Who will be the 2014 European Champion?
We will know on May 24th in Lisbon.
The Estádio do Sport Lisbon e Benfica will stage the 2014 UEFA Champions League final on Saturday 24 May.
Known across the world as the Estádio da Luz (stadium of light), the home of SL Benfica was formally inaugurated in 2003 in time to host several matches – including the final – of UEFA EURO 2004. The arena stands on the site of the original Estádio da Luz, which opened in 1954 and held the final of the 1992 European Cup Winners' Cup, where SV Werder Bremen beat AS Monaco FC 2-0.
The Portuguese capital has witnessed just one previous European Champion Clubs' Cup final, back in 1967 when Celtic FC's 'Lisbon Lions' overcame FC Internazionale Milano 2-1 at the Estádio Nacional. Meanwhile, the Estádio José Alvalade, home of Benfica's local rivals Sporting Clube de Portugal, staged the 2004/05 UEFA Cup final, with the host team losing 3-1 to PFC CSKA Moskva.
If you are lucky enough to find yourself in Ghana's Oil City, Takoradi, for good food and a truly international sports bar experience, pop into the Champs Bar and Restaurant located on the grounds of the Stellar Lodge and Apartments.
Arriving there on a Friday night, I was pleasantly surprised at the vibrant and fun atmosphere inside and out of the Bar. Inside there was the typical bustling bar scene with supersized HD plasma screens all around, pool tables and patrons galore. Outside there was a lovely garden area designed as a convenient area for smokers or those wanting to quietly socialize outdoors.
By a quick survey of a few patrons, their most popular offerings are the Chicken Wings (you can get them Suicide Hot, Medium or Mild) and the Pizza. I was very happy that I did not skip breakfast the next morning because it was simply delicious, with everything prepared exactly the way I like. If I had known in advance it would taste as good as it did, I would have taken a picture to share with you! Next time, I promise!
They also have a charming new restaurant equipped with projector screens for convenient use as a meeting or conference space.

For the past 7 years, on the last Sunday of September, the Accra International Marathon has been held. This popular event is aimed at promoting active healthy lifestyles and fitness and to increase life expectancy among Ghanaians. This year's event will take place 29 September 2013.
They attract a truly international group of runners, many who have visited Africa for the first time. In doing so, this event also puts Ghana on the world map as a desirable tourism destination for health enthusiasts.
This year will include a special group of marathoners traveling all the way from California with Judge Craig Mitchell who has introduced marathon running to them as a way to improve the quality of their lives (read more).
The event features a Full Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, 5K and Team Relay Races. The finish line leads the runners to the back lawn of the lovely Labadi Beach Hotel where there are vendors, food and entertainment. It is really a great way to spend the day.
The Accra International Marathon is also a fundraising vehicle for the The Longevity Project.
Happy Running - Melissa
