THIS WEEK ON STAN SPORT

7 JUNE, 2023

In a bumper weekend lineup on Stan Sport not to be missed, the UEFA Champions League Final is here, Roland-Garros sees an epic encounter, the Super Rugby Finals commence, SpeedSeries tears up Winton, and fists fly as the PFL returns.

All the action. Ad-free. Live & On Demand.

FINAL: MAN CITY V INTER MILAN
SUNDAY 11 JUNE
LIVE ON STAN SPORT IN 4K UHD FROM 4:30AM AEST

Having won the English Premier League and FA Cup in recent weeks, Man City have history on the line as they attempt to win the elusive 'English treble' by taking out arguably the most prestigious trophy in world club football at Istanbul's Atatürk Olympic Stadium.

​It would be the first UEFA Champions League trophy in the club's history, and the treble would make them only the 2nd club in history to achieve the feat, with the other being rivals Man United 24 years ago.

They will look to sensational striker Erling Haaland as they have all season to lead them to glory, as well as İlkay Gündoğan who stepped up to secure the FA Cup last weekend.

​They will face stiff opposition in three-time champions Inter Milan, who have earned their position in the Final with a number of hard fought encounters. They have a formidable contingent of strikers themselves in Romelu Lukaku and Argentinian World Cup hero, Lautaro Martinez, making this a clash that no football fan can afford to miss.

Stan Sport's Max RushdenCraig Foster and Mark Bosnich will lead the coverage from 4:30am AEST Thursday and Sunday morning, with the team crossing to international analysts Mark Pougatch and Semra Hunter live in Europe. ​

FINAL: FIORENTINA V WEST HAM
THURSDAY 8 JUNE
LIVE & EXCLUSIVE ON STAN SPORT IN 4K UHD FROM 4:30AM AEST

While Fiorentina have not won a major European title in an astonishing 62 years, they have their best chance in front of them as they boast the most potent attacking lineup in the UEFA Europa Conference League this season. The club has scored 36 goals in 14 games en route to the final, including seven for the competition's top scorer Arthur Cabral.

Despite this, the contest is widely considered anyone's game, with West Ham being the Europa Cup semi-finalists in 2022. Similarly, they have not won a major continental trophy in almost 60 years, and while the game is technically on neutral territory in Prague's Eden Arena, two of their stars in Tomáš Souček and Vladimír Coufal have extensive experience playing in the stadium in the past.

2023 ROLAND-GARROS

FROM 7:00PM AEST DAILY UNTIL SUNDAY 11 JUNE
EVERY MATCH STREAMING AD-FREE, LIVE & ON DEMAND WITH FOUR COURTS IN 4K UHD ON THE HOME OF GRAND SLAM TENNIS, STAN SPORT

The time and date is set for the match the tennis world has been waiting for - world no.1 Carlos Alcaraz taking on arguably the greatest of all time, Novak Djokovic in the Roland-Garros semi-final - this Friday night from approximately 10:45pm AEST. The winner will go on to contest the Final on Sunday night.

While 16 years separates these two superstars, Djokovic has continued to take his game to new heights in recent times, clawing his way to 22 Grand Slam titles, drawing him level with rival Rafael Nadal. An elusive 23rd would make him the outright most successful player of all time - but the young Spaniard stands in his way, eager to carve out his own legacy. The two have miraculously faced each other only once - a year ago, also on clay, with Alcaraz edging out an extremely tight victory.

The women's draw also continues to heat up, with world no.1 Iga Świątek and no.2 Aryna Sabalenka still on course for a classic matchup should they get through some tough opposition in the next two matches, with the women's final scheduled for 11:00pm AEST Sunday night.

QUARTER-FINALS

BLUES V WARATAHS
FRIDAY 9 JUNE
LIVE & EXCLUSIVE ON STAN SPORT FROM 5:00PM AEST

The Waratahs must overcome the weight of history and the return of Beauden Barrett if they are to topple the Blues in the first quarter-final. NSW hasn't won at Eden Park since 2009 and superstar Barrett is back in the Blues ranks after recovering from a nasty gash to his foot.

CHIEFS V REDS
SATURDAY 10 JUNE
LIVE & EXCLUSIVE ON STAN SPORT FROM 2:00PM AEST

The Reds are hoping that lightning strikes twice as they travel to New Zealand to take on the table-topping Chiefs in Hamilton. Queensland are the only team to have beaten the Chiefs this season, chalking up a 25-22 upset in New Plymouth in May.

CRUSADERS V FIJIAN DRUA
SATURDAY 10 JUNE
LIVE & EXCLUSIVE ON STAN SPORT FROM 4:40PM AEST

The Drua are out to continue their fairytale season as they take on the might of the defending champion Crusaders. The Fijians stunned the Crusaders at home in the regular season but Scott Robertson's men will be primed for revenge in chilly Christchurch.

BRUMBIES V HURRICANES
SATURDAY 10 JUNE
LIVE ON STAN SPORT FROM 7:00PM AEST

The Brumbies are flying the flag as the only Australian team to host a home Super Rugby Pacific quarter-final this year. The Brumbies also beat the Hurricanes in Canberra in last year's quarters but the Wellington-based club are in form after toppling the Crusaders.

ROUND 4 - WINTON

DAY 1
SATURDAY 10 JUNE
LIVE ON STAN SPORT FROM 11:00AM AEST

DAY 2
SUNDAY 11 JUNE
LIVE ON STAN SPORT FROM 9:30AM AEST

The SpeedSeries brings the nation’s action track alive for the first time since 2019 with the return of racing to Winton.

Australian motor racing legend Dick Johnson once famously said the circuit was “Like running a marathon around your clothesline.” His son Steven Johnson will be part of the Touring Car Masters field in what is a real V8 feel to the weekend.

The thunderous National Trans Am Series returns with James Moffat, son of four-time Bathurst 1000 winner Allan Moffat, leading the way for Garry Rogers Motorsport

The S5000 single-seaters will be the loudest cars on track all weekend, setting the fastest times of any category in Australia.

The V8 Touring Cars Series revives memories of the iconic Supercars era of the 2000s and 2010s while the National Sports Sedans features some of the wildest tin-top racing machines.

The best will be saved for last with the TCR Australia Series, which features third-generation racer Clay Richards making his debut.

PFL 4 - LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHTS & FEATHERWEIGHTS
FRIDAY 9 JUNE
LIVE ON STAN SPORT FROM 8:30AM AEST

PFL returns for the second round of the 2023 season, with the light heavyweight and featherweight men in action.

Also on the card is light heavyweight star Movlid 'Killer' Khabulaev, an appropriate moniker for a man with a 20-0 unbeaten record who is looking to remain that way en route to the 2023 PFL Playoffs.
