Chelsea and Manchester City fans have been barred from traveling to Turkey to watch the Champions League final between the two clubs due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The announcement was made by British Transport Secretary Grant Shapps, after listing Turkey as a banned country due to the high number of cases in the country.
The most important match in Europe, which will be played in Istanbul on May 29, will be played on May 29 between the two main rivals.
Shapps said the countries blacklisted by England due to the COVID pandemic “should not be visited except in the most extreme circumstances”.
Shapps says the Football Association is in talks with Uefa over a move to the UK, but the decision is up to UEFA.
“The UK has a successful track record of hosting matches with spectators so we are well placed to do it,” he said.
