UK Government: 60,000 people at Wembley for semi-finals and final

The UEFA Euro 2020 semi-finals and final are due to be played at Wembley Arena, London.

However, a few days after these matches, the advance of the fourth wave of COVID-19 in the UK is raising many doubts regarding health safety, especially due to the rapid spread of the DELTA variant of the virus, a variation of the Indian variant.

Just yesterday the President of the Italian Council of Ministers Mario Draghi had proposed to play these matches in Rome, given the relative health safety of the country. Instead came the UK government's response to the matter.

At least 60 thousand spectators will be admitted to Wembley on the occasion of the two semi-finals and the final of Euro 2020, scheduled for 11 July. It was the British government itself that announced today that the capacity of the London stadium, for the last three games of the European Championship, will be expanded to 75% of its maximum.

For the three games played in the group stage, the capacity at Wembley had been limited to 25%. Angela Merkel instead supports Mario Draghi on the seat of the European final. She said: "The European Championships are also held in an area of ​​Covid variants and, as you know, everyone who travels to Great Britain must go to quarantine. I hope UEFA will act in this sense with a sense of responsibility."
