The United Kingdom wants to host the Champions League final with the participation of Chelsea, London and Manchester City. The match was scheduled for May 29 in Istanbul, but Turkey has just been included in the list of countries to which the British are not advised to travel.

“The British Confederation is in talks on this matter with UEFA. We are ready to host the final match,” British Transport Secretary Grant Shaps said.

From 12 May, there will be a ban on travel from Turkey to the UK, except for returning Britons, who will, however, have to quarantine the hotel upon arrival at their own expense (£ 1750 per person).

“I fear the fans will not go to Turkey when it comes to the Champions League,” Shabs added.

The UK ranks first in Europe for deaths from COVID-19 (more than 127,000 victims), but the health situation has improved significantly thanks to a strict three-month lockdown and a very advanced vaccination campaign. Currently, there are approximately 2000. infections and about 15 deaths.

Manchester City players will face Chelsea at home on Saturday in the 35th Premier League match. If the citizens won, they would secure the England championship. (PAP)
