England want to seize the CL final from Istanbul after the restrictions imposed

England is preparing to take over the Champions League final between Premier League clubs Manchester City and Chelsea from Istanbul at the end of this month, as Turkey is considered a red zone by British health authorities, and fans are in principle banned from travel.

The British government announced this on Friday.

There are a lot of travel restrictions for countries in the red zones. If the final takes place in Istanbul, all players and staff, as well as thousands of fans who wanted to support their team in Turkey, will have to undergo a ten-day quarantine upon their return to the UK.

“We have put Turkey on the red list and that has consequences,” British Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said on Friday. So the FA is already negotiating with UEFA to play the final in England. We are ready to welcome the finalist of CL.

Just in dire need

The third lockdown took place in Turkey since the end of last month, after a new wave of coronavirus. It seems that the peak has already been reached, but more than twenty thousand infections are still diagnosed every day.

Shapps said British fans should not travel to Istanbul because the red zones “should only be visited in cases of great need”.
