UEFA in talks with British government to move Champions League final to Wembley

Temporibus autem quibusdam et aut officiis debitis aut rerum necessitatibus saepe eveniet ut et voluptates repudiandae sint et molestiae non recusandae itaque.

UEFA was meeting virtually with the British government on Monday to make a decision on shifting the Champions League final to Wembley from Istanbul because of travel restrictions. UCL final is likely to be moved to England’s Wembley Stadium from Istanbul after Turkey was added to England’s “red list” of countries of severe coronavirus outbreaks. Prime minister Boris Johnson said at the weekend: “It would be brilliant to host [the final] here if we can” and that “with two English teams in the final, it would be a great shame if fans were unable to attend”. Wembley is currently scheduled to host the Championship play-off final on 29 May one of the most important fixtures in the Football League calendar.

The travel waivers already granted by the government for the UEFA European Championship would have to be brought forward by two weeks to stage the May 29 final of its biggest club competition in London. UEFA could also seek quarantine waivers for dignitaries and sponsors for the Champions League final, which could be attended by around 20,000 fans as will be the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday.Switzerland, where UEFA is based, is among the amber list of countries from which people arriving in England have to quarantine for 10 days, albeit organized individually rather than the mandatory hotel isolation in place for arrivals from red-list countries.
