Manchester United Champions League Tie to be Moved

The Manchester United Champions League tie against Young Boys of Switzerland on December 8 could be moved because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The development of the Omicron Variant of coronavirus in the UK has cast doubts on the Champions League game.

The UK has mandated a ten-day Isolation for anyone entering from some European countries, with Switzerland included.

Manchester United to Lose Millions Amidst COVID Cases

The UEFA governing body seeks clarification as to whether the rule will apply to the Young Boys team when they visit Old Trafford for their final group game.

If the isolation rule should affect the Swiss team, the UEFA rule states that a neutral venue should be used, affecting the date of the game.

Manchester United have already qualified for the quarter-final of the competition, and Young Boys have the opportunity to qualify for the 2nd tier of the competition if they win this matchup.

Switzerland is one of the many European countries the UK reimpose coronavirus restrictions amid a rise in cases.

Manchester United will be on the verge of losing millions of pounds in gate receipt if the game is eventually moved to a new venue on a later date.
