UEFA has moved this year’s Champions League final from St Petersburg in Russia to Paris in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The European soccer’s governing body announced this in a statement on Friday, 25th of February, 2022.

UEFA also said that, the home games of Ukrainian and Russian club and national teams competing in UEFA competitions would be played at neutral venues “until further notice”.

The decision to move the game out of Russia was made on Friday morning at an extraordinary meeting of the UEFA Executive Committee, held in response to “the grave escalation of the security situation in Europe.”

The game, on May 28, would now take place at the Stade de France.

UEFA also wishes to express its thanks and appreciation to French Republic President Emmanuel Macron for his personal support and commitment to have European club football’s most prestigious game moved to France at a time of unparalleled crisis.

 

Together with the French government, UEFA asserted that, they would fully support multi-stakeholder efforts to ensure the provision of rescue for football players and their families in Ukraine who face dire human suffering, destruction and displacement.
