UEFA, UK in talks over Wembley final, decision 12 May



UEFA and the UK government on Monday began virtual talks on the logistics of using Wembley for the all-English Champions League final.

The match will be between Manchester City and Chelsea.

A decision of switching the final from Istanbul’s Ataturk Stadium to Wembley will be announced by UEFA on 12 May.

Uefa confirmed to The Associated Press on Monday that it has already secured quarantine exemptions for its staff and media for the Euros in England with eight games at Wembley including the July 11 final.
