Euro 2020: Uefa 'committed' to 12 venues for 2021 tournament, with fans decision in April
Uefa says this summer’s European Championship will still be held across 12 cities, despite concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.
Euro 2020 will be held in London, Glasgow, Dublin, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, St Petersburg, Bilbao, Munich, Budapest, Baku, Rome and Bucharest.
A decision on whether fans will be permitted has been delayed until April.
The competition is due to begin in Rome on 11 June, with the final at Wembley on 11 July.
It was postponed in March last year when the pandemic first emerged.
There had been speculation that this year’s finals could be staged in one country to reduce travel if restrictions still apply.
Following a meeting of host associations on Wednesday, Uefa said that “all parties recognise the need for flexibility around decisions to be made on the arrangements for the tournament”.
Host associations had been asked to submit plans to accept fans in a number of different scenarios by 5 March but the European governing body confirmed that “the deadline for the submission of plans to accommodate fans inside the stadiums has been moved to early April”.
