PARIS: UEFA announced on Friday that the 2023 Champions League final will be played in Istanbul, the last two editions having been moved from the Turkish city to Portugal due to 19 issues.

The 2020 competition was hit hard by epidemics, and ended with the ‘Final Eight’ tournament in Lisbon after being forced to leave Istanbul.

Last season’s final between Chelsea and Manchester City was scheduled to take place again at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium, but the British government forced UEFA to move it to Porto after it decided to put Turkey on its travel red list.

St. Petersburg, initially hosting the 2021 exhibition, will instead have next year’s final, while Wembley will be the 2024 finalist.

Munich, which was scheduled to reach the final of 2023, will now host the 2025 edition.
