What are the EURO 2020 Covid-19 rules at every venue including Wembley Stadium?


After a year long delay Euro 2020 will finally kick off this week.

With plenty of excitement and drama on the pitch, the competition will also offer us a proper glimpse of what life will be like in post-Covid-19 times.

The Euros is the biggest tournament to date to take place during the pandemic.

The multi-nation hosted event will take place in several major cities across the continent including London at Wembley stadium.

Only one stadium will allow full capacity (Budapest) with the others expected to fill only a small proportion of the stands.

Though this could change if restrictions are lifted as expected in England on June 21.

And while there are some countries who are easing out of lockdown restrictions, rules will vary from one host city to another.

The Mirror brings you what the rules are in each host city.

· Signs in the stadium will point the way.

· Anyone who feels unwell or has symptoms of Covid-19 should not go into the stadium.

The ticket holders will only have a 30-minute allocated slot to enter the stadiums prior to kick off so you might have to arrive well in advance of the event.
