UEFA set to switch Champs League final

ที่มาของบทความ:admin เรียกดู:发表เวลา:2022-11-22 19:03

UEFA is almost certain to switch this seasons Champions League final away from St Petersburg amid the Ukraine-Russia crisis.

Russia has sent troops into two rebel-held regions of eastern Ukraine and there are fears an invasion is planned.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, speaking in the House of Commons yesterday, said there was no chance of holding football tournaments in a Russia that invades sovereign countries.

Culture Secretary, Nadine Dorries, added that she had serious concerns about the sporting events due to be held in Russia, such as the Champions League final, and will discuss with the relevant governing bodies.

Meanwhile, former UK Sports Minister Tracey Crouch has told BBC Sport that UEFA should move the final immediately.

European footballs governing body is assessing the situation before making a decision but it is set to be looking for a new venue at short notice for the third year running.

The past two Champions League finals were played in Portugal because of Covid-19 related issues.

BBC Sport understands the game will still be played on Saturday, 28 May, which is likely to rule Wembley out as a host as the League Two and Championship play-off finals are set to be played at the stadium over that weekend.

UEFA are in talks with Dynamo Kyiv and Sporting Lisbon over their Youth League last-16 tie which is scheduled to be played in the Ukraine capital on 2 March.

Other UEFA competition fixtures may yet need to be moved.

There are no teams from Ukraine left in any other European competition this season but Russian club Zenit St Petersburg are still in the Europa League and are set to play the second leg of their play-off round tie with Real Betis in Spain tomorrow. Zenit lost the home leg 3-2.

At international level, Russia are scheduled to host Poland in a World Cup play-off on 24 March and if they win would face Sweden or Czech Republic on 29 March.

Ukraine are also in the World Cup play-offs, and visit Scotland and then either Wales or Austria in their bid to qualify for the tournament in Qatar.

Tensions in the region have escalated further this week with Russian President Vladimir Putin ordering troops into two rebel-held regions in eastern Ukraine, after recognising them as independent states. Fears over an invasion have been rising in recent months, as Russia has massed around 150 000 troops along Ukraines borders, according to US estimates. BBC Sport.
