Criterion imposed by UEFA for the host countries of the competition, the return of the public to the stadiums for the Euro this summer has been authorized by the Italian government for the matches scheduled in Rome this summer.
UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin had caused quite a bit of speculation by announcing that only cities that will allow spectator access would be eligible to host the Euro (June 11 to July 11, 2021). The 12 host countries of the competition, including Italy, presented their action plan to UEFA recently.
According to the transalpine media, the Minister of Health Roberto Speranza has given the green light for the presence of the public to the president of the Italian federation (FIGC) Gabriele Gravina for the four matches planned in Italy, in the enclosure of the Stadio Olimpico from Rome. The plan can now be submitted to UEFA.
The program of matches planned in Italy:
June 11: Italy – Turkey
June 16: Italy – Switzerland
June 20: Italy – Wales
July 3: Quarter-final
An important approval
This green light obtained by the Minister of Health represents an important step in the representation of Italy at Euro 2020, while uncertainty looms in Germany with the delicate situation in Munich or even in Dublin, Ireland.
The president of the Italian federation Gabriele Gravina was also keen to express his joy after obtaining this health agreement: “It is an excellent result which is good for Italian football. In such a complex moment, the desire to see the Italian presence confirmed at this important event has been clearly expressed, giving confidence to the Federation. We have received a strong signal regarding the resumption that we will quickly transfer to UEFA “.
