Dettagli UEFA Euro 2020 regole per le squadre colpite da problemi di virus

La UEFA ha pubblicato regole extra per l'11 giugno-luglio 11 torneo, incluso l'aumento delle dimensioni della squadra da 23 giocatori a 26 per aiutare le squadre a far fronte alla pandemia di coronavirus.


Euro 2020 is scheduled to play 51 giochi in 31 days with few days available as back-ups. Matches will be played on schedule if each team has at least 13 Giocatori, including one goalkeeper, available for selection.

UEFA said teams with fewer than 13 players could have their gamerescheduled within the next 48 hours of the date of the relevant matchand possibly at a different venue.

Any additional player called up to meet the minimum of 13 players requires that an equivalent number of quarantined players are definitively withdrawn from the 26 players list,” the European soccer body said.

The team responsible for a game not being played will forfeit it as a 3-0 loss and the national federation will face disciplinary action by UEFA.

The emergency rules are similar to those enforced by UEFA this season in its club competitions and Nations League, and upheld in several appeal cases at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Ukraine and Norway forfeited Nations League games as 3-0 losses last year. Ukraine’s squad was put in quarantine by public health officials in Switzerland. Norway’s squad was stopped from traveling to Romania by a decision of its own health officials.

Euro 2020 is being played with 24 teams in 11 cities across Europe with at least 25% of stadium capacity set to be available for all games.

Dublin was dropped by UEFA last month after public authorities did not give assurances on how many fans could attend games, and Bilbao was replaced by Seville.
