UEFA are reconsidering the venue for the Champions League final, following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, according to multiple reports.
St Petersburg was set to host the showpiece event at the Gazprom Arena on May 28th, but UEFA are now reviewing the situation.
Europe’s governing body has been able to move the last two Champions League finals at short notice, but those changes were due to travel restrictions brought in after the virus outbreak.
The 2020 final was moved from Istanbul to Lisbon, while the 2021 event (where City played Chelsea) was originally set to be hosted in St Petersburg before being switched to Porto.
With Portugal having hosted the last two finals, it seems logical that they would be chosen once again if a similar change is needed. Wembley has been touted in the English press as a potential alternative but the EFL playoff finals take place on the same weekend so it would make hosting another event pretty unlikely.
