Portugal sets strict instructions for Man City and Chelsea fans before the European Final

The Portuguese government announced that fans intending to travel from England to Portugal to attend the UEFA Champions League final between Chelsea and Manchester City have been informed of the need to return to England on the same day of travel to Portugal.

The Portuguese government stressed that the masses should be subject to the "bubble" system, and their arrival and travel will be via charter flights, and they will undergo tests for the Corona virus on the sidelines of attending the Champions League final match, according to the British news agency BAM Media.

It was decided to transfer the final of the Champions League from Istanbul to Porto, after the British government included Turkey in the "red list" of countries to which travel is prohibited due to the Corona virus pandemic, except for extremely complex circumstances.

And Chelsea and Manchester City will each get six thousand tickets for the match scheduled at the "Dragao" stadium in Porto on May 29.

The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) quoted Mariana Vieira da Silva, Portuguese Minister of Cabinet Affairs, as saying, "Those coming to the Champions League final will come and return on the same day with an examination and under the bubble system, on board charter flights. "

She added, "There will be two fan zones, from which they will go to the stadium, then from the stadium to the airport, so that they will spend less than 24 hours in Portugal."
