The Lowdown: Tottenham touted as Champions League final host
The FA are currently in talks with UEFA over relocating this year’s Champions League final from Istanbul to England after Turkey was placed on the Covid-19 red list.
This prompted reports of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium being a possible destination for the event alongside Villa Park and St James’ Park (The Mirror).
The Latest: Alasdair Gold drops crucial update
Gold has shared new information regarding the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and whether or not Spurs’ home ground could feasibly host the final.
Writing on Twitter, the reporter confirmed that Spurs are not in talks nor are they planning discussions. He explained: “Understand Spurs are not in talks to host the Champions League final at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium or planning talks about it.”
The Verdict: Music to the ears of fans…
In what would have been humiliating to host a major European final for their London rivals, Tottenham fans may be relieved in hearing Gold’s crucial update regarding the plans.
As the FA and UEFA continue talks over relocating the final, it appears as if Spurs’ new state-of-the-art ground won’t be in contention to host it.
The governing bodies could have to arrange another destination given Turkey’s status, with officials telling both Manchester City and Chelsea supporters not to travel (football.london).
There was plenty of uproar regarding whether Spurs’ home could host the final, and Tottenham fans can breathe a sigh of relief that it won’t be at their ground.
