UEFA continues with the preparations for the final of the Champions League, although they begin to project a new venue in case of a political conflict in Turkey.
According to information from the Daily Mail, UEFA approached the Portuguese authorities to move the Champions League final to the Estádio da Luz, in Lisbon.
This option “B” would be taken in the event of civil unrest due to the elections in Turkey, which are scheduled for May 14, while the second round would be on May 28.
So far, and according to the report, this was an informal approach with the Portuguese Football Federation, which previously intervened with Lisbon and Porto organizing the final in 2020 and 2021.
This season’s Champions League final is scheduled for June 10, in Istanbul.
It should be remembered that Turkey was going to host the Champions League final in 2020, but the health situation in the world prevented it from taking place in the country.
In the elections, where about 64 million people are expected to participate, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, of the popular ALLIANCE, and Kemal Kilicdaroglu, who appear as the two main candidates, face each other for the Nation Alliance.
