As well as various police forces being involved, there will also be the clubs' private security teams and Red Cross members taking part.

Although the fountain in the centre of the city will be home to thousands of fans throughout the night and will need most attention, there will also be a strong presence at Madrid's Barajas airport where Real Madrid will land with the trophy.
