Following Russia’s ghastly, inhumane invasion of Ukraine, authorities have hit Russia with sanctions widening from economic sanctions on Russian Oligarchs or to sporting sanctions in which this article will cover.
This year’s Champions league final was originally scheduled to be held at the Krestovsky Stadium on Krestovsky Island in Saint Petersburg, Russia. This honour of hosting one of the most watched sporting events across the continent if not the world was rightfully revoked by UEFA following the Kremlin’s military offensive against Ukraine.
So, where did UEFA relocate the final? Wembley Stadium, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium were all under consideration, but following the disgraceful scenes we saw at Wembley in the Euro 2020 final with fans breaking into the stadium, that made UEFA’s decision much easier than everyone had anticipated.
Decision made: 🇫🇷🇫🇷🇫🇷🇫🇷
