Officially transferring the Champions League final from Istanbul to Porto, Portugal … what is the reason?


The European Football Association (UEFA) announced yesterday, Thursday, the transfer of the Champions League final between Manchester City and Chelsea, the Englishmen on May 29, from Istanbul to Porto, to allow fans of the two clubs to travel safely in light of the restrictions of the Covid-19 pandemic..

The final was supposed to be held at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, but the British government placed Turkey on the “red list” for the travel of its citizens last Friday, and had already ruled out the opportunity for fans of the two English clubs to attend the match. The final will now be held at Porto club’s Drag√£o stadium.
