We support the decision taken by UEFA to relocate the 2020 UEFA Champions League Final due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and believe it is in the best interests of both European and Turkish football.
The TFF has been in close contact with UEFA and other key European football stakeholders in recent weeks in order to reach a positive and viable solution that works for all parties involved. We thank Aleksander Ceferin and the UEFA Executive Committee Members for the way in which they worked with us to make sure a decision was reached to benefit the teams, players, fans, officials and all stakeholders involved in the competition.
We are pleased that we will get the opportunity to host the 2021 UEFA Champions League Final, when we hope normality has been restored and we can welcome fans from all over the world to our wonderful city. It is still our desire to deliver a fantastic final at the renovated Ataturk Stadium in Istanbul.
We wish UEFA and the remaining teams in the 2020 Champions League a smooth and safe conclusion to the season.
