Negotiations between Britain and UEFA over the venue for the Champions League final


British Cabinet Affairs Minister Michael Gove said on Sunday that delicate negotiations are currently taking place between the British government, European Football Association (UEFA) and other parties over the venue for the Champions League final match.

The final will bring together two English teams, Manchester City and Chelsea, on May 29 and was supposed to be held in Istanbul.

But doubts arose over the venue of the match after the British government decided to place Turkey on its red travel list, making it impossible for British fans to attend.

“There are detailed negotiations at the moment,” Goff told Sky News about the possible location of the final.

“My friend and colleague, Minister of Culture and Sports, Oliver Dowden, is talking to officials at the moment. I don’t want to boycott, but I trust British fans will love to watch the final here in Britain,” he added.

In another interview with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), Gove said that Dowden was talking to “Uefa and others.”
