Am I the only one to notice how badly genuine football fans are being treated by UEFA? The final has rightly been moved from Istanbul, but why not to Wembley? With two English clubs involved it would have meant much lower costs for the fans and reduced international travel. Our government has rightly refused to relax Covid rules for officials, sponsors and broadcasters, so it went to Porto. So again the majority (the fans) lose out to the glitterati. Ironically, infections in Portugal are rising and they may gave to think again. UEFA originally said that the move from Turkey was to safeguard the fans. That claim looked dubious then but looks ridiculous now.
