Will Fans Be Allowed?
A final decision is yet to be reached. However, many of the venues have committed to permitting supporters inside the stadium to view the tournament. Among these is Wembley Stadium in London, which has pledged to allow about 25% of the stadium capacity allowed for fans.
This percentage might even increase once England relaxes its restrictions a bit. Similarly, Glasgow’s Hampden Park, Seville’s La Cartuja, Bucharest’s National Arena, and Copenhagen’s Parken stadium have made a similar pledge for permitting about 25% to 45% of the stadium capacity.
Other venues, however, are in a full swoon for the upcoming matches, with the St Petersburg Stadium planning up to 50% of the stadium capacity, while Budapest’s Puskás Aréna is gunning for full capacity. With safety precautions at the top of their priorities, Munich’s Fußball Arena München will permit only 14,500 fans, which amounts to about 22% of stadium capacity.
What About Tickets?
Once the tickets were put up for sale, organizers were blown away by the overwhelming demand. For the 2 million tickets available, there were about 19 million hopeful fans. UEFA gave all purchases the opportunity to return their tickets for a full refund by the 22nd of April – about 2 months before the tournament’s first match.
