Although UEFA has yet to make an official announcement, both FC Copenhagen and Dnipro, the two teams involved in an upcoming Champions League match have stated that the game will be played in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev on Wednesday, July 30.

“The battle between the Dnipro and FC Copenhagen will be played at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev on the 30th of July at 19:00,” confirmed Dnipro on Twitter.

TV3 Sport, who will broadcast the match, said that it expects UEFA will make the announcement soon.

FC Copenhagen had said that they would not travel to the eastern Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk, which is part of the region where pro-Russian separatists are fighting against the Ukrainian military for control of the area.

UEFA had originally maintained that the match would not be moved, but conceded today that conditions make it too dangerous to play the game in eastern Ukraine.
