Saturday’s hugely anticipated all-English UEFA Champions League final between Manchester City and Chelsea from Porto will biegin at 3 p.m., ET.  In Porto, the kickoff time is 8 p.m. For the fans of the clubs based in the United Kingdom, the match begins as the same time as it does in Porto — at 8 p.m. 

While all UCL matches are usually played on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, the final is reserved for the Saturday following the conclusion of the domestic leagues. Both Chelsea and Man City were in action last weekend, with the Blues losing to Aston Villa, while still qualifying for next season’s Champions League. City celebrated their league title with a 5-0 win over Everton at the Etihad. 

Pre-match press conferences for players and the managers will be on Friday from Portugal. 

The match will be played at the Estádio do Dragão in Portugal, home of FC Porto, after it had to be moved out of Istanbul, Turkey, due to the United Kingdom’s travel restrictions brought on by the coronavirus pandemic. For more on the move, click here.
