UEFA confirmed that Porto’s Do Dragao Stadium will replace Istanbul’s Ataturk as the venue for the final of the Champions League between Manchester City and Chelsea Saturday May 29 (9pm)
The change of venue responds to the great travel difficulties for the fans of the two English clubs to Turkey due to the inclusion of this country in the United Kingdom’s red list and the offer of the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) to organize the match. .
UEFA explained that the holding of the final in Turkey would have meant that none of the national fans of the clubs could travel to the match and that after a year without the fans having been able to visit the stadiums it considered that everything possible had to be done to that the fans of the two finalist teams could attend.
