The match was initially scheduled to take place at Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey, on the same day, but UEFA decided to change this location due to the epidemiological restrictions in that country.
The fact that Turkey was on the United Kingdom’s Red List played a role in this decision.
The news is provided by the British Sky Sports TV channel and has since been confirmed by RTP.
The Turkish option lost its strength after Manchester City and Chelsea secured their presence in the decisive match.
Due to the pandemic, British authorities have advised against travel between England and Turkey.
With Wembley awarded as a possible option, UEFA had decided that Dragao Stadium would host the final.
This will be the second time in the past three years that Portugal has hosted the decisive match of the most important European club tournament.
London’s Wembley Stadium will be placed as a hypothesis, but everything indicates that the body governing European football will be more inclined towards the choice of Estádio do Dragão, claiming that it guarantees that it will be able to receive six thousand fans from each club on the seats.
