Stadium Debate (UCL Final 2021
« on: Fri 07 May 2021 18:30 »
Now that Turkey is on the red list for the UK, we have a dilemma over where the final will now be held

Will we be in the UK for the final. However, there is a small matter of a Championship Play Off Final at the main contender for a stadium on the same day

Will we be in Lisbon. A safe country that hosted last years final and an easy commute for the favourite referee for the game

Or will we be surprised

UEFA announce they will need 'a little bit of time' to come up with a solution for the UCL final

Puskás Aréna - Budapest




I have a press pass for the game & it would be an extra trip home!

Hampden Park or the Principality Stadium if they have any sense.

Agree but "if they have any sense" probably rules them out!

I get 3 weeks there next month for the Euro's. Sadly we didn't get any of the reallocated games But I do have permission to stay for the whole 3 weeks with quite strict restrictions outside of attending games! I'm not complaining I get to annoy Mr bmb for 3 weeks straight!

I suppose Villa Park is the ground about Half Way between the two sides competing for the trophy.
Quite an upgrade needed for the media though.

Surely it has to be moved.

UK Gov have said they’re happy to host it, I’m sure it’ll be arranged somehow.

Villa Park, Spurs Ground, Old Trafford...

There’s plenty of options.

Playing Devil's Advocate my question is "Why should UEFA move the final?"

These two teams have recently been part of a breakaway movement that wanted to play most of their matches in Europe with no thought whatsoever for their fans so why shouldn't UEFA give them the opportunity.

If they do move it, will they allow fans to attend and, if they do, how can anyone reconcile that with the fact that, although they allowed a limited number of fans for a cup semi-final featuring two PL sides, they would not allow fans for the Vase and Trophy finals which took place two weeks later, ostensibly in a much healthier country.

Will it be a case of 'money talks'? Watch  this space with interest.




Referee's decision used to be final!

Because it is due to be played in a country with one of the highest Covid infection rates in the World.  That alone is a valid enough reason, it doesn't need to move to England and could be anywhere with a low infection rate.

I am certain that Erdoğan won't be happy if they take the final from Turkey second year in a row....

Time for the players and clubs to stand up, if eufa wont move the final, they should refuse to travel to a country
With a very high infection rate on health and safety grounds.

Agree rustyref the game could be played in any european country with low infection rates.
