Aston Villa will host the Champions League final between Manchester City and Chelsea at Villa Park on May 29;

an all-Premier League final is currently scheduled for Istanbul on May 29; international travel from the UK may be permitted beginning May 17.

Aston Villa has approached the FA and UEFA with a proposal to host the Champions League final at Villa Park, avoiding the need for 8,000 English fans to fly to Istanbul for the match.


Political pressure is mounting for the game to be moved to England now that Manchester City and Chelsea have been announced as the finalists.

For such a large case, Villa Park is currently not up to UEFA standards; the press box, media facilities, and camera positions will all need to be heavily modified, but those improvements are still being assessed.
