1995 UEFA Champions League Final
Event UEFA Champions League 1994–95
Date 24 May 1995
Venue Ernst Happel Stadium, Vienna
Referee Ion Craciunescu (Romania)
Attendance 49,730

The 1995 UEFA Champions League Final was the 40th edition and took place in Vienna between AFC Ajax and A.C. Milan. It was Milan's third European Cup final in three years and they were aiming to emulate Real Madrid's record of the European Cup six times. After 85 minutes the deadlock was broken when Frank Rijkaard, a former Milan player found Patrick Kluivert with just enough space in the penalty area to lose his two markers and slot the ball past Milan keeper Sebastiano Rossi.

This was the first match officially called UEFA Champions League Final, the first final aired by private broadcasters and not by EBU, and the first year that shirt sponsors had been worn in the European Cup final.
