How to buy tickets for Champions League Final; Manchester City vs Chelsea

Istanbul was originally supposed to be the host city, but following the British government's decision to put Turkey on the red list of the trip, Uefa's decision to move the final to Portugal was made. The main motivation is that fans of both clubs can attend the game.

The association said: "UEFA has discussed moving the match to England, but despite exhaustive efforts by the Football Association and the authorities, it has not been possible to obtain the necessary exemptions from the UK quarantine arrangements"

Uefa president Aleksander Ceferin said: “Fans have had to suffer more than 12 months without the ability to see their teams live and reaching a Champions League final is the pinnacle of club football. 

“To deprive those supporters of the chance to see the match in person was not an option and I am delighted that this compromise has been found. After the year that fans have endured, it is not right that they don’t have the chance to watch their teams in the biggest game of the season.”

When is the final?

The two English teams will play one another on 29 May at the Estadio do Dragao in Porto after Portuguese authorities gave the go-ahead this week.

How many fans can go?

While the capacity of the stadium will be confirmed in due time, each club has received 6,000 tickets. This is the same number allocated for Istanbul.

What are the travel rules for Portugal?

Under current travel rules in Portugal, people in countries outside the European Union cannot travel there.

However, Portugal's tourism board has confirmed that British holidaymakers will be allowed to enter the country from Monday.

Visit Portugal said in a statement: "The Portuguese Minister of State for Foreign Affairs announced today that British tourists will be allowed to enter Portugal at 00:00 next Monday from 17 May next year.

“This decision will revoke the essential travel restrictions that is in place until the 16th of May. Any person entering Portugal will have, in any case, to have an RT-PCR test done 72 hours before departure.”

British supporters will not have to quarantine on return from Portugal as the country is on the UK’s green list.

How to get tickets
