According to reports released on the UEFA official page, the Rome Stadio Olimpico has been “full confirmed” as a matchday venue for the Euro 2020 matches.
This is coming following the Italian governments’ guarantee for the presence of at least 25 per cent of fans.
Rome was one of the four of the 12 host cities that threatened to be removed as a host city due to a lack of assurances that spectators would be allowed into stadiums due to fears of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The authorities have guaranteed at least 25 per cent of the stadium’s capacity will be filled,” UEFA said.
“As a result, UEFA considers Rome to be fully confirmed as a venue for the tournament.”Three other cities — Munich, Bilbao and Dublin — have until April 19 to provide UEFA with additional information on their plans for spectators.
Rome is set to host the opening fixture for the tournament, between Turkey and Italy, on June 11.
It was also picked to host Italy’s other group matches against Switzerland and Wales, as well as a quarter-final.
“Fans with tickets for matches in Rome should note that there will be no exemptions granted, to any travel restrictions that will be in place at the time, for people arriving from outside Italy,” UEFA added.
