Turkey placed on UK’s ‘red list’


    The venue for the upcoming Champions League final meeting between Chelsea and Manchester City has been thrown into major doubt on Friday evening.

    PL showdown

    The return legs of the Champions League’s two semi-final ties were of course played out earlier this week.

    First, Manchester City welcomed Paris Saint-Germain to the Etihad, aiming to build on a 2-1 advantage to book their spot in the club’s first ever showpiece occasion on Europe’s grandest stage.

    And, when all was said and done, this is precisely what the Sky Blues managed, courtesy of a double from Riyad Mahrez.

    Then, 24 hours later, it was the turn of Chelsea and Real Madrid to do battle.

    The hosts again boasted the edge ahead of the action getting underway at Stamford Bridge, after securing an important away goal in a 1-1 draw in Madrid.

    And Thomas Tuchel’s men only went on to add to their advantage on Wednesday, notching through Timo Werner and Mason Mount to set up an all-English Champions League final.

    The showpiece occasion, as is the norm, is scheduled to play out upon the completion of the domestic season, on the 29th of May.

    As outlined above, however, on Friday evening, the matchup’s venue has been thrown into serious doubt.

    This comes after the UK government confirmed that Turkey – home to the planned finale venue of the Atatürk Olympic Stadium – has been placed on the country’s ‘red list’ for travel:

    This means that, any individuals who travel to Turkey will now be forced to see out a 10-day period of mandatory quarantine at a specified hotel, upon their return to the United Kingdom.

    This, of course, poses a major issue for not only playing staff, but also fans of Chelsea and Manchester City, after both clubs were allocated a stadium attendance of 4,000.

    In turn, it has come as little surprise to hear that crisis talks have already gotten underway.

    UEFA, the FA and the UK government have opened discussions over a potential change of venue, with Istanbul, incredibly, now in danger of having the biggest occasion in European football taken away from them at the last minute for the 2nd straight season.

    Wembley is one potential venue which has been floated as an alternative to the Atatürk Olympic Stadium, though the Championship playoff final – also set to play out on the 29th of May – could throw a spanner in such plans.

    The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is also viewed as a viable landing spot for the showdown between Chelsea and City.
