The Champions League final relocated?


According to Daily Star, the Champions League final which is scheduled for May 28 in Saint Petersburg could be relocated to London by UEFA in the event of an invasion of Ukraine by Russia. In the event of an escalation in the conflict between the two countries, the match which was to take place in the Gazprom Arena in Saint Petersburg could then be moved to Wembley. It would be a real financial loss for the Russian city because the organization of a Champions League final would bring in more than 70 million euros for the host.
