FA wants 45,000 fans at Wembley for Euro 2020 semi-finals and final

England’s Euro 2020 group matches at Wembley will have 22,500 fans, the Football Association has guaranteed Uefa, with the hope this figure will double to 45,000 for the semi-finals and final.

The numbers – which represent 25% and 50% of Wembley’s capacity – were discussed at a meeting on Thursday of the 12 host Euro 2020 cities. Fans will be expected to have lateral flow tests, or to show proof of a vaccination, to attend.

It is also understood that anyone with tickets for England games will have to enter a ballot – with those not successful being given a refund. About 3,600 tickets will be reserved for Scotland fans for the England v Scotland group match on 18 June.

Uefa also explored the possibility of granting more time to Dublin and Bilbao to guarantee spectators in grounds for Euro 2020, with a decision over whether to move any games unlikely to be taken for at least another 10 days.
