Sam Allardyce insists the npower Championship play-off final is a bigger game than the Champions League final.

Allardyce's West Ham side will battle for promotion to the Barclays Premier League with Blackpool, with an estimated £90million at stake for the winners.

Later in the evening Chelsea take on Bayern Munich as they bid to be crowned kings of Europe, but the Hammers boss claims the main event kicks off at 3pm at Wembley. "Saturday afternoon is bigger," he said.
