Champions League final venue update: Aston Villa approaches UEFA, FA to host

The Champions League final between Manchester City & Chelsea that is meant to be held in Istanbul could be alternatively moved to Villa Park, with Aston Villa having approached UEFA & the FA

This year’s Champions League final was set to be held in Istanbul, but with a global pandemic going on, that is going to make it harder to plan and much more difficult for the fans to get there.

It’s a move that would make a lot of sense – Villa Park is a cracking ground, it’s a fairly iconic neutral venue for cup ties and it’s a reasonable middle point between Manchester and London.

Unfortunately this is UEFA and sense and practicality for the fans usually takes a back-seat when there’s money to be made, but it does look like there’s a chance of this happening.
