Young Boys game could be moved – reports

United could see their Champions League match at home to Young Boys moved to a neutral venue, according to reports.

Scheduled for Wednesday, December 8 with an 8pm kick-off, the setting of that match has come under question due to the ongoing impact of Covid-19.

As it has across wider society, the devastating pandemic continues to take hold of the elite sporting calendar and, in turn, the emergence of a new Omicron strain of the virus has thrown up more concerns.

According to The Telegraph, UEFA are attempting to discover whether the Young Boys squad will have to quarantine back in Switzerland for 10 days upon their would-be return from Manchester.

The same article reports that if the elite sport exemption rule doesn;t apply, then the game would be switched to a venue in a neutral country, or postponed if such a contingency can’t be found.
