Rome confirmed as host city for Euro 2020


Uefa have confirmed Rome’s Stadio Olimpico as a venue for the Euro 2020 tournament.

This comes after the Italian government guaranteed the presence of at least 25 percent of fans.

“The authorities have guaranteed at least 25 percent of the stadium’s capacity will be filled. As a result, Uefa considers Rome to be fully confirmed as a venue for Euro 2020 matches,” said the statement.

Uefa added that: “Fans with tickets for matches in Rome should note that there will be no exemptions granted, to any travel restrictions that will be in place at the time, for people arriving from outside Italy.”

Three other cities – Munich, Bilbao and Dublin have until April 19 to provide the European governing body with additional information on their plans for spectators.

Meanwhile, Dublin’s Aviva Stadium is scheduled to host three group matches and a last-16 game but there are growing doubts over the issue of fan attendance.
