Euro Cup 2020 was postponed for a year due to the coronavirus pandemic. And now the teams are ready for the European Championship. But due to Coronavirus, the confusion about the audience is over. According to the management, 20 percent of the fans will be allowed to enter the football stadium to attend Euro 2020.
All 11 host cities, from Glasgow to St Petersburg and Seville to Bucharest, have agreed to allow the least fans into their stadiums for Euro 2020 matches. However, nothing can be said about the final numbers for Friday’s tournament in Rome due to restrictions related to the epidemic.
Budapest, Baku, and St Petersburg are expected to fill between 50 percent and 100 percent capacity. That means 68,000 spectators can come to Hungary’s Puskas Arena stadium with full capacity to watch matches involving teams like Cristiano Ronaldo of European champions Portugal and Kylian Mbappe of World Cup champions France.
Baku and St Petersburg want their stadiums to be half full. In Azerbaijan, this can mean 35,000 spectators for three group matches and one quarter-final match, while in Russia it can be around 30,000 for six group matches and a quarter-final. Portugal and France will also play each other on 23 June.
The CEO of UEFA Events says that their first priority, second priority, and third priority in tournaments is always fan safety. It is important for everyone that we have an audience, it represents a step towards being normal for all of us in society.
He further added that the audience is smart and plans ahead. Do not crowd the stadium when you arrive and wear a mask. Keep your distance from others whenever possible and make safety a priority in everything you do. Most other stadiums are expected to fill to around 25% capacity, with Munich as low as 22% and some others possibly going up to 45%.
