Because of Corona: UEFA postpones Champions League final from Istanbul to Porto
Turkey, where the game should have taken place in the Ataturk Stadium, is on the UK red list. The city of Istanbul has recently been in a kind of corona lockdown again. Currently, due to the travel restrictions due to the corona pandemic, no fans can travel to the country without quarantine and other restrictions on return.
This means that the most important game in European club football after Lisbon 2020, where a kind of mini-tournament took place in order to be able to play the Champions League to the end, will again take place in Portugal.
