More than 60,000 fans to attend Euro 2020 semi-finals, UK gov’t says

EURO 2020 semi-finals and final on 6, 7 and 11 July 2021 will see the largest crowds assembled at a sporting event in the UK in +15 months.

More than 60,000 fans will be permitted at the UEFA EURO 2020 semi-finals and final at Wembley Stadium following an announcement by the UK government, increasing attendance to 75% of capacity for each game.

The semi-finals take place on Tuesday 6 and Wednesday 7 July, with the final being held on Sunday 11 July. All attendees must continue to follow strict COVID-19 entry requirements.

UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin said: “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.

“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 culture secretary, Oliver Dowden, said: “We are thrilled that more fans will now be able to walk through the Wembley turnstiles and enjoy the finals of Euro 2020. As we continue to make progress on our roadmap out of lockdown, keeping the public safe remains our top priority. We have worked extremely closely with Uefa and the FA to ensure rigorous and tight public hea lth measures are in place whilst allowing m ore fans to see the action live.”

Strict entry requirements will include having a negative COVID-19 test or proof of full vaccination (two doses received, 14 days before the fixture in question).

The group stage of this summer’s European Championship is in the process of being completed, with England back in action against the Czech Republic on Tuesday.
