Conference League final could be moved from Tirana to Crete

UEFA Conference League trophy

Roma are still battling for a top four finish in Serie A but they also remain firmly in the hunt for the Conference League.

The Giallorossi face Bodø/Glimt in the quarterfinals next month and are still among the favorites to make it to the final of the competition, which will be held on 25 May in Tirana, Albania.

However, Albanian outlet oranews.tv reports UEFA is weighing up the possibility of moving the final to Greece due to turmoil within Albania’s Football Association.

Armand Duka, the president, was suspended after accusations of abuse of office and forgery of documents. Another senior FA official, Ilir Shulku, was also handed a suspension as prosecutors continue to investigate potential corruption within the country’s top footballing body.

Should UEFA opt to remove the final from Tirana, they would likely move it to either Athens and Crete.
