COVID-19: How serious is the coronavirus in cities organizing Euro 2020? | World news

Europe is preparing to enjoy one of its most anticipated football tournaments in years, as it tries to ignore the impact of the pandemic on organized sports.

But the countries where the delayed Euro 2020 matches will be played vary widely in terms of the current severity of the virus.

And the cities that host the squad and knockout matches vary even more.

A total of 10 countries will welcome spectators, with football being played in 11 stadiums and arenas. In the UK, England’s Wembley National Stadium and Scotland’s Hampden Park will be used.

Thousands of fans will always gather in the stadiums, and many more are expected to mingle at the meeting points in the city centers. Until now, two Spanish players, two Swedes and several Czechs were among those who tested positive even before the start of the European Championships.

The cities where the matches will take place will be: Amsterdam, Baku, Bucharest, Budapest, Copenhagen, Glasgow, London, Munich, Rome, Saint Petersburg and Seville.

Dublin and Bilbao were previously offered as venues, but the UEFA Executive Committee met at the end of April and decided that, in large part due to COVID rates, fans would find it difficult to attend matches.

Either way, fans across the continent will face all kinds of obstacles when playing games at other venues.

The capacities of most fields are reduced to allow social distancing, greatly reducing the number of seats available.

Below are some of the restrictions and issues that anyone wishing to attend games at all 11 fields will face.

Much of what is listed for stadiums outside the UK is based on the latest information received by UEFA from local authorities and is constantly evolving and changing so should be checked against local government requirements:

Three group matches, two round of 16, two semi-finals and the final
