Around 60,000 fans will be allowed to attend the semis and final of the ongoing Euro 2020 at London’s Wembley Stadium, UEFA has announced.
Following an announcement by the British government, the capacity for each of the three games will be increased to 75 per cent.
“It is great news that so many fans will be able to watch the final three matches of Euro 2020 at Wembley. The last 18 months have taught us — both on and off the pitch — how integral fans are to the fabric of the game,” UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said in a media release.
“This tournament has been a beacon of hope to reassure people that we are returning to a more normal way of life and this is a further step along that road. I am grateful to the Prime Minister and the UK government for their hard work in finalising these arrangements with us, to make the tournament final stages a great success at Wembley,” the release added.
Meanwhile, it has also been announced that fans will need a negative COVID-19 test or proof of full vaccination to enter the Wembley.
Earlier, only 25 percent crowd capacity was allowed for the three group matches.
However, after the announcement, the capacity will be increased to around 50 per cent for the two last-16 encounters later.
The semi-finals take place on July 6 and 7 while the summit clash will be held on July 11.
