    Contracts have been signed, the venue is decided well in advance, tough.

    These things are decided well in advance, UEFA would presumably have to pay the Turks a fortune to get out of it. They could play it on the moon as far as I'm concerned, I'm not interested in either of the teams in the final. But they can't just "decide" to move it.

    I bet they can.

    They won't but they definitely can.

    Tbf the Turks should ask for it to be given to an English side and they get the 2023 final by default.

    They moved it last year in similar circumstances :shrug

    Admittedly they decided a bit earlier but the 19/20 final was supposed to be in Istanbul and moved to Lisbon.

    But the circumstances were rather different, this is a one off game.

    Looks like it's getting moved to Wembley. Right move imo. To play it abroad under the current circumstances would've been stupid.

    Community Shield is harder to win though.

    Looks like Portugal..... no way this government are going to let hundreds of Gasprom employees and UEFA hangers on in without quarantine for days. Especially for a football game.

    Three thousand exemptions apparently. A reminder of what a shambles UEFA is.
