LONDON (AP) – UEFA has yet to ask the British government for a tax break for overseas teams in the 2013 Champions League final at Wembley, risking a repeat of an issue that forced the 2010 game to be moved to Spain.
UEFA moved the 2010 final to Madrid instead of London after foreign teams balked at the prospect of paying British tax on earnings from bonuses and endorsements from the event.
For last month's showcase game at Wembley, Britain granted an exemption from its tax laws to relax the rules for foreign teams.
But the government said Tuesday that it ''has not been approached'' about a similar exemption for the 2013 event.
UEFA says it is still ''confident'' that the same conditions will apply.
