MANCHESTER CITY - 2021 CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL, PORTO IMPORTANT TRAVEL INFORMATION
When will I receive my travel documents?
Your travel e-Ticket and further information will be sent to you by email by Thursday 27th May at the latest. Should you not have received the email by then, please check your junk folder.
What are the COVID-19 requirements to travel to Portugal?
Portugal has been placed on the UK Government’s green list. Whilst the key information has been summarised on the Manchester City website here, supporters are asked to visit the official government website to ensure they fully understand the requirements in place for international travel from the UK.
It is important you complete the COVID-19 requirements as stipulated by the UK and Portuguese governments prior to departure. Travel will be refused unless you meet the criteria for both countries. Passengers that return to the UK without the correct paperwork will be issued with a fine of up to £2,500.
Please note: You are required by the airline and airport to wear a face mask at all times (unless eating or drinking).
What documents do I need to have available to show at Check-in?
We recommend you print the following documents and carry them with you at all times. These documents are required for both arrival and departure check-ins and entering the stadium:
1. Printed confirmation of a Negative private PCR Test – negative PCR COVID-19 tests taken in the UK from 1pm onwards on Thursday 27th May can be used for entry into Portugal, the stadium and return travel back to England for supporters on the Club’s official day trip travel package.
2. Completed and printed Portugal Locator Card*
3. Completed and printed UK Passenger Locator Form**

** UK Passenger Locator Form: to complete this form you will need your PCR booking number for your Day 2 PCR test when you return to the UK.

How long is the flight time to Porto and will there be catering provided on the flight?
The flight to Porto will take approximately 2 hours and 20 mins. Yes, catering will be served on the flight.

Going to be fun trying to print off the Portugal passenger locator card for those of us booked on Spike’s trip as we won’t know our seat numbers until after we’ve checked in on Friday!

I thought I was ok as my passport has 11 months left and is less than 10 years old but as I renewed early (and 9 months extra validity was added) the additional months don’t count towards the 6 months remaining. This means my passport isn’t valid for travel to the EU after February 2021. Having to collect a new one in Liverpool on Thursday morning but I’m really worried as I can’t give new passport details to the club or the travel provider until then!

Might be worth checking if you renewed early about 10 years ago.

Out of sheer frustration I've booked the Blind Spot test. If we get a definitive (positive) answer to the '72 hours/3 day' conundrum I'll take it Thursday morning, if not, it'll be Friday and,if I don't get the results back in time, fuck it, I'll watch it on the telly.
