The 1970 European Cup Final was a football match held at the San Siro, Milan, on 6 May 1970, that saw Feyenoord of the Netherlands defeat Celtic of Scotland 2-1 after extra time. Ove Kindvall's goal in the 117th minute meant the trophy was going to a Dutch club for the first time. It remains Feyenoord's only European Cup triumph. The match nearly never took place due to massive strikes throughout Italy during 1970 (The Italian FA backed down to ensure that their own clubs would be able to compete in further UEFA competitions). A match programme was never issued for this final; it is unknown whether one was ever printed.
