Die Euro 2020 toernooi word regoor die vasteland gehou, maar die laaste drie wedstryde sal in die Wembley-stadion wees.
“I would like to share my doubt with you about the possibility of organizing the final or the semifinal in Wembley in a stadium — full stadium,” EU Commission vice president Margaritis Schinas told European Union legislators.
At least three of the four semifinalists will be bringing fans from across the Channel, with England the only British team still with a chance of advancing that far.
“Given that the United Kingdom is restricting its citizens movements to the European Union needs to be a certain amount of symmetry in these kinds of decisions, a certain amount of proportionality,” Schinas said. “So, I think here that UEFA would do well to carefully analyze its decision.”
Schinas told legislators that EU scientific projections showed that 70% of new infections are projected to be due to the delta variant in Europe by early August, en 90% by the end of August.
“There is clearly a very worrying trend,” Schinas said, “something that compels us to continue being very vigilant.”
