My understanding is that it's taking place in Portugal because we refused to allow dignitaries and press from all over Europe to bring their covid here.
This is because many of the dignitaries and sponsors come from countries on the red list and would not have been able to attend were the match played at Wembley. However, as Portugal is on the Green list, fans are able to go and see it.
// fans are able to go and see it. //

that remains to be seen. there's no indication when, or even if, the EU will lift its ban on visitors to the bloc, for non-essential reasons.
what you moaning about canary? Last thing we need is a some p0xy soccer match restarting the crisis.
The further away football matches are held the better IMV!
\\UEFA had wanted to move the final to Wembley and was in talks with the UK Government, but there was a considerable sticking point over waiving quarantine rules for the 2,000 staff, sponsors, VIPs and foreign media.//

So its due to covid and not Brexit, for a min there I thought it was a sensible post.
webbo, just the standard anti British Tripe from Canary.
//taking back control//
Who from canary?
Is this a Brexit reference? If so can you explain it to a remainer like me who dosn't see what your getting at
And also to a Leaver like me.

It seems Portugal has still not decided whether it will allow tourists in or not from next Monday (i.e. four days hence). It has said, however, that if fans travel to the Champions League Final they "must travel on chartered flights and must be in and out of the country in 48 hours." Quite how that squares with not allowing anybody in is somewhat puzzling.
It's a football match. I have no idea what "taking back control) has to do with UEFA or the Champions League.
