UEFA Stuck With Choosing Venue For  Champions League Final After Covid-19 Surge In Istanbul 

UEFA Stuck With Choosing Venue For  Champions League Final After Covid-19 Surge In Istanbul 

According to ESPN, the venue for the UEFA Champions League final could be moved to London or Lisbon due to the worsening Covid-19 situation in Istanbul Turkey that has raised a lot of concern.

Manchester City and Chelsea will meet on May 29 with the possibility of closing the curtain in England at Wembley Stadium.

Rigid Covid 19 and quarantine protocols have seen a last minute venue change for the coveted finals, although the UK has been identified as the first alternative, harsh rules and regulations are proving to be a major constraint.

It is a major necessity for all arrivals from Turkey to the UK to be quarantined in an airport hotel for 10 days and, without exemptions, it means that the rule applies to all players and coaching staff of the two finalists.

This makes it extremely difficult, in addition to the fact that up to 2,000 UEFA staff and sponsors, and international broadcast rights holders, must be present at the game. He has seen ESPN report that UEFA is considering moving the final with London and Lisbon as his two options, although the report has indicated that London, and therefore Wembley Stadium, is his ideal destination. But UEFA is still in talks with the UK government and the English Football Association in hopes of making a breakthrough.

The second alternative is in Lisbon especially after the success they had with Europe and the Champions League last season. With Portugal on the UK’s green list, it allows travel without quarantine and UEFA sees Lisbon as a strong backup option.

ESPN sources have revealed that FC Porto’s Estadio do Dragao appears to be the ideal choice, although the stadium’s television complex is not large enough to meet the demand for a Champions League final and the lack of accommodation in a hotel is another key issue.
