The British government has authorized an increase in the tonnage for the semi-finals and the final of the Euro, which will take place at Wembley in front of 60,000 spectators.
The Euro final will take place in a well-stocked stadium! The British government has authorized 60,000 spectators for the semi-finals and the final of Euro 2020, which will take place at Wembley. So far, only 22,500 spectators were tolerated in the London enclosure for the first matches of the competition.
It will be “The largest crowd gathered for a sporting event for more than 15 months in the United Kingdom”, underlines the British government in its press release. Boris Johnson’s government was under pressure from UEFA, which feared that the 10-day isolation imposed on voyeurs from many foreign countries would deprive the 2,500 VIPs (journalists, officials, sponsors, etc.) of this great event. A relocation of the final to Budapest has been considered, but this outcome now seems unlikely.
« I am grateful to the Prime Minister and the UK Government for their hard work in making this arrangement with us to make the end of this tournament a great success at Wembley“, Greeted the president of UEFA, Aleksander Ceferin, in the press release.
