Porto has the Champions League final but for now, I believe that UK visitors can't travel there at the moment on the basis that we are outside of the EU, and they are only allowing EU visitors.

Portugal were allowing UK visitors from the 16th April I think (but we can't actually travel there until the 17th May)

On the move, seems 2 thigs prevented being held in the UK. The main one being the Government not removing the quarantine rules for the 2000 or so UEFA staff and officials who need to attend. T'other reason was UEFA wanted Wembley, the Government offered Wembley but Wembley is a tad busy that weekend with Play Off Finals

I think there was a discussion with the FA/EFL about it but I guess the logistics of moving games just meant it wasn't possible.

Plenty of other Stadiums UEFA could have used, Spurs for example but the non movement on the Quarantine rules ended it anyway. UEFA wanted the same rules that will be used for the Euros in June but we wouldn't budge on that

Doesn’t the ground have to be five star UEFA rated for a champions league final? Think that is only Wembley, Old Trafford (even though it is falling down), the Millenium, and maybe The Emirates and the Spurs ground that would be eligible.

Or not and Sniffer was correct.

Portugal not set to allow UK visitors until...30th May.

I bet they change it tomorrow.
"Portugal govt minister just said that English fans who want to attend the CL final in Porto will have to fly in via charter flights and stay in a 'bubble' before going straight to airport after the game. Will be in and out in less than 24 hours. "

It turns out that coach was a decoy also blocking the road is an offence even if the bonnet is up
Is that coach always a decoy? I think it’s usually used by the kitman?

He's trying to borrow money against the stadium he doesn't own and they are already getting done for, to buy the club
I see Derby have walked away from that deal now

Derby is a strong community club and Mel Morris local lad made good. He'll only put them in admin and the implications that come with that locally as a last resort

From what I've read the potential buyers of Derby want admin so the debt is reduced.
