UEFA representatives commented on the information of the French media, according to which the organization is considering the possibility of holding all matches of the European Championship 2020 in Russia.
“UEFA intends to preserve the format and location of Euro 2020 and is in constant contact with the cities regarding preparations for the tournament. Given the uncertainties surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, which neither UEFA nor local organizers can influence in any way, it is too early to say whether there will be restrictions on fans or, in principle, their presence in stadiums.
The organization is currently focusing on hosting the Euro in 12 stadiums with fans. If there is a need for opposite decisions, they will be made closer to the beginning of the tournament. But now there are no plans to change any stadium ”, – Sky Sports quotes the statement of UEFA.
