The Champions League final has been moved from Istanbul to Porto


Union of European Football Association (UEFA) has confirmed the Champions League Final between Chelsea and Manchester City will be held in Porto on May 29, with 12,000 spectators.

The Final was due to be played in Istanbul, but the serious COVID-19 concerns in Turkey made the English Government appeal to have it moved to London.

Sky Sport Italia reported UEFA had decided to move the Final to Portugal and UEFA has now confirmed the match will be played at the Estadio Do Dragao of FC Porto.

It will be the second consecutive year that the Champions League Final has been played in Portugal, as the Final Eight was compressed into a straight knockout tournament in various Portuguese cities last term.

Fans will return when Chelsea and Manchester City clash in Porto, as UEFA has confirmed the stadium will allow 12,000 spectators for the big event.
