Man City fans are livid after the plans for supporters travelling to Porto for the Champions League final have been revealed.
The Citizens will face Chelsea at the Estadio do Dragao on May 29th in the final of European football’s showpiece. The game was originally set to take place in Istanbul, but it was moved by governing body UEFA when Turkey was put on the travel red list by the United Kingdom, meaning fans would be unable to travel to take in the match live (euronews.com).
Both City and Chelsea will be allowed 6,000 fans at the stadium for the match, but it is unlikely to be a smooth experience for those who travel. Portugal’s cabinet affairs minister Mariana Vieira da Silva has revealed those who travel to the final will have to return on the same day and will only be allowed to visit a fanzone before going to the ground.
Should the final have been at Wembley?
This news, which was shared on Twitter by @City_Xtra, did not go down well at all with the club’s supporters. They took to the social media platform to reveal their thoughts.
Let’s see what the Man City fans had to say below
“What a mess this is, they knew everyone would book flights and hotels when it got announced today”
“What a scam”
“farcical situation regarding this final”
“Just after UEFA saying they care about fans”
