May 25 21:18 2021

At the latest meeting of UEFA, the reporter asked and answered several key issues concerned by the fans, mainly about the host city of the European Cup and the admission to watch the match.

Following the official media release, we now know that some UEFA EURO 2020 matches have been reallocated to other venues and that all stadiums, including Football Arena Munich, will allow fans to attend the matches. To help ticket holders with the key decisions that come next, we have put together some of the most frequently asked questions to the UEFA marketing director Guy-Laurent Epstein.

Which matches have been moved and where?

Seville will be a new EURO 2020 host city. The four matches initially scheduled to take place in Bilbao will be moved to the Estadio La Cartuja in Seville. The venue will host about 30% of the stadium capacity.

The three Group E matches initially scheduled for Dublin will now take place at Saint Petersburg Stadium.

The Round of 16 match initially scheduled for Dublin will be moved to Wembley Stadium in London.

The 11 final UEFA EURO 2020 host cities are:

Amsterdam, Baku, Bucharest, Budapest, Copenhagen, Glasgow, Munich, London, Rome, Seville, Saint Petersburg.

Will spectators be able to attend UEFA EURO 2020 matches?

Guy-Laurent Epstein said“Yes! Each of the 11 UEFA EURO 2020 host cities will welcome fans back to the stadium for the matches this summer.”

Saint Petersburg and Baku have confirmed capacities of 50%.

Budapest aims to host 100% of the stadium capacity, but with strict stadium entry requirements for spectators.

Amsterdam, Bucharest, Copenhagen, Glasgow, Rome and Seville will be hosting 25%–33% of the stadium capacity.

London has confirmed a minimum capacity of 25% for the first three group matches and round of 16 match.

Munich aims to host a minimum of 14,500 spectators, corresponding to approximately 22% of the stadium capacity.

How were the decisions around stadium capacities made?

The decisions were taken by the hosts. The key indicator was the projection of an improved health situation in their host countries. Many factors were taken into consideration, including the local vaccination rollout, their plans for reopening the economy and the expected slow-down of the virus due to warmer temperatures.

In many countries, UEFA EURO 2020 had already been part of their national recovery strategy.

In addition, UEFA has worked closely with the World Health Organisation (WHO) to adapt the WHO COVID-19 risk assessment tool for EURO 2020.
