Supporters can attend after Champions League final moved to Porto

The Champions League final between Manchester City and Chelsea on the 29th of May has been moved from Istanbul to Porto.

Wembley was considered for the all Premier League encounter - but the government in the UK couldn't fulfil all of UEFA's requests. Both clubs will receive 6,000 tickets each for the decider.

The change was made after Turkey was placed on the UK's travel 'red' list, meaning fans wouldn't be able to go. Portugal's on the green list, so supporters won't have to quarantine on their arrival back home.

“I think we can all agree that we hope never to experience a year like the one we have just endured," UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin said of the switch.

“Fans have had to suffer more than twelve months without the ability to see their teams live and reaching a Champions League final is the pinnacle of club football.  To deprive those supporters of the chance to see the match in person was not an option and I am delighted that this compromise has been found.

“After the year that fans have endured, it is not right that they don’t have the chance to watch their teams in the biggest game of the season.

“Once again we have turned to our friends in Portugal to help both UEFA and the Champions League and I am, as always, very grateful to the FPF and the Portuguese Government for agreeing to stage the match at such short notice."
