It's the elephant in the room now given 2 English teams are in the Final and we're still in a pandemic/epidemic.

UEFA moved the final last year, they talked about being there for the fans during the ESL saga, now is their time to prove it.

Turkey are in lockdown, they come out of lockdown 12 days before the final. It's a logistical nightmare for fans in this country to get there. It might even be limited allocation due to needing to travel via official club channels (not confirmed yet).

Now I'm aware that Wembley have EFL playoffs that weekend, so move it to any other suitable stadium; Millennium Stadium (unlikely being used as a COVID hospital), Hampden Park, and Old Trafford all meet the UEFA Category 4 rules to host a Final.

Will UEFA move it?

No. No chance. They've made it clear that they are playing the game in Istanbul.

I think it would be piss funny lifting it in their ground. Don't think the Spurs stadium meets the requirements.
