UEFA has issues with CL switch to London, Portugal a backup

People familiar with the talks say UEFA has given the British government until Tuesday to offer the travel waivers required to move the Champions League final to Wembley or the all-English game could be played in Portugal instead. The May 29 showpiece between Chelsea and Manchester City is set to be moved from Istanbul after Turkey was added to England’s “red list” of countries with severe coronavirus outbreaks. Porto is one of the backup options after UEFA hit snags with its preferred location of London. UEFA has been holding talks with the British government but has not managed to secure an exemption from quarantine for everyone they want to be able to attend the final in London — including sponsors, their guests, and media.
