UEFA officially strips Russia of Champions League final

The step was taken after an emergency UEFA meeting on Friday

The 2022 Champions League final will no longer take place in the Russian city of St. Petersburg, organizers UEFA have announced.

The move comes amid the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine. 

The May 28 football showpiece will instead be held at the Stade de France in Paris. 


The relocation marks the third successive year that the marquee event on the European club football calendar has been shifted from its original venue.

The 2020 and 2021 finals were both relocated from Turkey to Portugal because of Covid pandemic restrictions.
