Euro 2020: UEFA mulls how to manage stadium seats
Ahead of the European football tournament, EURO 2020, the continental football governing body, Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), is exploring how best to reallocate the limited number of seats in host countries.
According to reports, the decision on stadium capacities will need to be made by individual governments.
Although there is another option for the body which is to redistribute tickets via a ballot but it is considered logistically tougher.
More than one-and-a-half million of the three million tickets for the tournament had already been sold, though many will have been returned to UEFA before this week’s deadline.
To limit international travel, it is also possible that only home fans will be able to attend group games. Many of the national representatives are pushing UEFA to take steps to prevent international travel by supporters because of the pandemic.
The tournament is scheduled to begin on June 11, with the final at Wembley on July 11.
