EM 2021: Munich beckons the green light as host

The decision on whether Munich will remain among the hosts of the European Championship finals (June 11 to July 11) could be made before the meeting of the Executive Committee of the European Football Union (UEFA) on Monday. To SID-Information, the latest statements by the Bavarian state government, according to which partial admission of spectators in the arena is conceivable, was taken benevolently by UEFA.

Analogous to the positive decision on Wednesday’s European Championship venue Rome, UEFA could therefore also give Munich the green light in the run-up to the deliberations of the Executive Committee around DFB Vice President Rainer Koch.

UEFA had originally requested a spectator guarantee from all twelve planned European Championship venues. In order to keep the German Football Association (DFB), which organizes the European Championship in 2024, on board, the Bavarian Association’s declaration of intent could also be enough. However, UEFA can only hope for an arena that is 20 percent full. According to the latest deliberations of the Munich Sports Committee, a higher occupancy rate is considered unrealistic.
