On Wednesday, UEFA will decide where the UEFA Champions League Final will be held.
British media reported that UEFA will decide, on Wednesday, whether to move the Champions League final from Istanbul to London, and two English teams – Manchester City and Chelsea – will meet in the cup match.
The situation related to the COVID-19 pandemic in Turkey has caused the UK to place this country on the ‘red list’, making travel more difficult and requiring a 10-day quarantine. The British government has already called on fans not to travel to Istanbul to participate in the final on May 29.
