UEFA confirms plans for fans at Euros – with Wembley set for 45,000 for final


UEFA has confirmed eight cities will host fans in this summer’s Euros – and Wembley hopes to have 45,000 for the final.

European football’s governing body announced England can have up to 22,500 for the three Group matches against Croatia, Scotland and Czech Republic on June 13, 18 and 22 respectively.

They also hope to be able to confirm in early June that England will be able to host up to 50 per cent of capacity for the semi finals and then the final on July 11.

Glasgow has also confirmed they will be able to host at least 25 per cent at Hampden Park while Amsterdam, Bucharest and Copenhagen will also have up to 33 per cent capacity.

Budapest hopes to have games at full capacity while St. Petersburg has confirmed a capacity of 50 per cent while travelling fans may be able to go to Baku if they can prove they had a negative test or with a coronavirus certificate.

But there is still major doubt over Munich, Rome, Bilbao and Dublin with the Irish Government reluctant to offer any guarantees over fans.

Their games could be switched with still the possibility of at least one being moved to Britain at a different venue from Wembley but all four cities have until April 19 to confirm or otherwise.

Meanwhile, UEFA has given supporters who have bought tickets but cannot travel extra time to return the tickets by April 22 and then they will decide whether a ballot needs to take place to decide how they can comply with the stadium capacities if they have sold too many.

UEFA said: “Fans wishing to travel to the host countries to watch the matches will find it challenging due to ever-changing restrictions.

“A ballot will be held in order to determine the additional tickets that will need to be cancelled in order to comply with the decisions of the host country governments.”
