The Premier League are seeking urgent clarification from the Government about their clubs' exemption from travel restrictions amid fears that next week's Champions League and Europa League ties could be affected by the spread of the Omicron Covid variant.

New travel rules requiring all UK visitors to take a PCR test and self-isolate for several days came into effect this morning, and the Government have yet to confirm that there will be an exemption for elite sport.

In another complication, Manchester United's home tie against Young Boys could be moved to a neutral venue after the Swiss government on Monday imposed a 10-day quarantine on UK arrivals.

There will be chaos regarding tickets and travel costs if the venue was to be moved with just over a week to go, while it is still unclear whether fans would be allowed to travel to the match.
