ATHENS, September 15. /TASS/. UEFA’s decision to pick the Ukrainian capital of Kiev as the venue for hosting the final match of the 2017/2018 Champions League is in no way inconvenient for Russia, Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko told TASS on Wednesday.
Members of the Executive Committee of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) decided at its session on Thursday in Athens that the final match to decide the best European football club in the Champions League 2017/2018 season would be held at the 70,000-seat capacity NSC Olympyisky, which also serves as home arena for Dynamo Kiev FC.
"Kiev has an outstanding stadium," Mutko, who is also the president of the Russian Football Union (RFU), said in an interview with TASS. "We must not create complications out of nowhere."
Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko announced earlier in the day in his Twitter account that the Congress of UEFA decided to hold the final match of its most prestigious European tournament in two years in the capital of Ukraine.
"This is good news for all of us, particularly for Ukrainian football fans," the leader of Ukraine wrote in his Twitter account on Thursday.
The stadium in Kiev has been already tested by games of top-notch teams, which played in Ukraine and Poland during the 2012 UEFA Euro Cup.
