Report: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on stand-by to possibly host Champions League final

By Eddie Razo -

The UEFA Champions League final is supposed to occur in St. Petersburg, Russia, in a couple of months. However, with the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine, the Daily Mail reports that it will be stripping the country as the host nation for the game. 

Following the decision of President Vladimir Putin to send troops into eastern Ukraine, flaring a global concern, UEFA had emergency talks about moving the May 28th match away from St Petersburg. 

According to the report, Tottenham Hotspur and Wembley Stadium are on standby should UEFA pull the trigger and relocate the host venue. However, UEFA reportedly would favor waiting until the semi-final line-up is confirmed before selecting a new host city. 

UEFA could be feeling the pressure from outside their offices as Prime Minister Boris Johnson stated it ‘inconceivable’ Russia could host the Champions League final.

However, Johnson wrongly told Parliament that Chelsea’s Russian owner Roman Abramovich had been ‘sanctioned,’ with officials subsequently compelled to correct his comments.

Nonetheless, with four Premier League clubs in the Round of 16, it wouldn’t come as a surprise if the match is moved to London.

I couldn’t give less of a sh*t about our stadium’s alternative uses.

We’re turning into the new rent boys; the rent-a-stadium boys.

Well apparently they are funding this ‘money for gongs’ government …but let’s hope they are thrown out along with their dirty money.

The FA should have something to say about that.

Wouldn’t it be lovely if we kicked all those hideous Russian oligarchs out of the country. Bye bye, Roman, it’s been so nice knowing you!

It’s almost comical how badly we are run and Spurs fans, who do so, are naive beyond belief in sticking up for the positively bestial creature at the helm of the club.

In recent times (ie last 3 years), that would be a thoroughly unique spectacle.

I have read that we are hosting the rugby league final at the time of the CL final, so no chance of getting it. However, if the CL final was more lucrative I’m sure Levy will just tell the RL to find a different venue. Money is everything to Levy, shame we don’t have a worldclass team to match our world class stadium.

On another issue, wonder when the PL will sanction Chelski and the gooners for being bankrolled by Russians.

At least there’d be the prospect of two decent teams on the pitch at the same time!

Too true! Perhaps being nuked by that narcissistic, megalomaniac Putin (he and Levy should get together and compare notes!) would be a blessing in disguise ie no more watching a shopping mall from London N17 masquerading as a football club!

All is now clear!
Levy is making a bid for “The Tottenham Hotspur stadium” to be the permanent home of the CL final, having given UEFA a guarantee that Spurs’ will never reach the final and thus have home advantage.

If this is true and the stadium is in contention to host the CL Final then, as news, it just comes at the wrong time imo. Given the defeat last night it’s insensitive in the extreme. Am I surprised? No. Levy will pop up like an Olympic sprinter when there is more money to be made but when it comes to supporting his managers he’s useless, always too little, too cheap, too wrong and too late. I’m done watching if Conte goes and I will not come back until Levy follows-which I realise may be never.

An event for the event arena.

More cash for ENIC to hoard. Meanwhile the football club has passed on….
