Even before Russia's troubling invasion of Ukraine began Wednesday evening ET, UEFA was reportedly considering relocating the Champions League final set to occur in the Russian city of Saint Petersburg on May 28. It's believed UEFA will announce that decision at some point on Friday, but that could be only the beginning. 

According to Aidan Fitzmaurice of the Irish Independent, the Ukrainian Football Association has called upon both UEFA and FIFA to ban any teams from Russia from participating in official tournaments. As of the posting of this piece, Zenit Saint Petersburg were scheduled to face Real Betis in the second leg of a Europa League tie on Thursday afternoon ET.
