The all-English Champions League final on May 29 has been moved to Porto, UEFA has announced.

The match between Chelsea and Manchester City had been due to take place in Istanbul, but UEFA was forced to consider other options after the British Government last week placed Turkey on its high-risk ‘red list’ for international travel amid the coronavirus pandemic, denying fans the chance to attend.

Wembley was considered as an alternative to Istanbul, but the British Government could not accommodate the request to allow quarantine exemptions for thousands of sponsors, VIPs and broadcasters, which made Porto the front-runner.
