After 141 years of history, Manchester City is on the verge of being crowned king of Europe for the first time, just in a year in which the coronavirus pandemic that has hit the world has deprived millions of fans of all sports to be able to attend various events. In this context, the Champions League is no exception, but there will be at least 6,000 fans from the celestial team and another 6,000 from Chelsea, the other finalist, who will be able to travel to Portugal to witness the match in the stands of the Estadio Do Dragao

The British team, which has suffered long seasons in the ascent, even in the third category, and which has resurfaced thanks to the millionaire injection of the Arab group that bought it in 2008, is 90 minutes away from conquering the most precious trophy of the Old Continent and their owners know what this means for their hobby. That's why, through a statement, it was announced that the club will finance the trip of its fans to Porto.

"Thousands of City supporters will benefit from the initiative that's designed to alleviate financial pressure on fans who have faced, and are still facing, challenging circumstances due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic", says the writing in which is announced that the owner of Manchester City, Sheikh Mansour, will pay the expenses of the partners who attend the Champions League final to be held on May 29.

“Pep (Guardiola) and the team have had such a remarkable season and reaching the Champions League final after a very challenging year represents a truly historic moment for the club. It's therefore incredibly important that as many fans as possible have the opportunity to attend this special match, especially those who have supported Manchester City through good times and bad for so many years”, said Mansour.

Although there are not too many specifications and details in the statement, it is made clear that the institution will take care of all protocol expenses, such as swabs and tests that must be carried out by those who travel to Portugal, in addition to airfare: "The challenges that the fans face before this final are multiple, both in economic and logistical terms. Fortunately His Highness initiative allows most of the attending fans to focus on enjoying the day rather than worrying about bearing the burden of travel costs, which have become even more onerous due to the effects of the pandemic”.
