UEFA Euro 2020 is on the door, the tournament starts today with a kick-off football match between Itlay and Turkey at home. Since the global pandemic hit in March 2020 this is the biggest event happening in the football world in the presence of spectators. UEFA Euro 2020 fans should avoid attending games if they have symptoms of COVID-19 and wear masks in the stadium that allow capacity at around 50%, an EU agency said on Thursday, amid concerns that the tournament could spread the infection.
The European Championship, which was postponed last year because of the pandemic, begins on Friday for a month, with 11 countries hosting games and stadiums to allow fans to return.
Budapest is pursuing maximum capacity, while St Petersburg and Baku will have 50%. Amsterdam, Bucharest, Copenhagen, Glasgow, Rome, and Seville will use between 25% and 45% of capacity, while Munich will use a minimum capacity of 22% and Wembley in London – which will host the final – will use a minimum of 25% for preliminary games.
The European Center for Disease Prevention and Control estimates that about half a million visitors will attend. “If mass events such as the UEFA European Football Championship take place in the absence of adequate mitigation measures, there will be an increased risk of local and pan-European transmission of COVID-19 risk, including the spread of concerns, according to a report.
“Any person who has COVID-19 compatible symptoms should not attend matches or post-match events, regardless of their vaccination status,” he said, urging officials to provide tests near stadiums.
