The British government has agreed on the possibility of transferring the UEFA Champions League final between Manchester City and Chelsea to Wembley Stadium.
Cabinet Minister Michael Gove said on Sunday: “At present, we are conducting delicate negotiations.”
The final will be held in Istanbul on May 29, but Turkey has been included in England’s “red list” on Friday because of the country’s travel ban for necessary reasons due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Due to the new restrictions, the British government advises club fans not to travel to Turkey. UEFA is confident that at least 10,000 fans will be able to witness this game.
If the final is moved to the UK, London’s Wembley (Wembley) may become the most likely venue for the final.
But the British government must ensure that UEFA representatives, sponsors and news envoys are not isolated. Switzerland, where UEFA is located, is on the list of countries, and people arriving in the UK must be quarantined for 10 days. Conversely, visitors from countries/regions on the red list must be quarantined at the hotel.
Gove said: “My friend, my colleague, Minister of Culture Oliver Dawton is currently talking about this, and I don’t want to interfere.” But I’m sure that British fans want a final here in the UK.”
