EM: Munich apparently remains the venue, but loses the quarter-finals

According to a media report, Munich will remain the venue for the summer European championship (June 11th to July 11th). Spectators should also be allowed to visit the European Championship games, but the planned quarter-finals may be awarded to another city. That reported the Sports show on Thursday evening.

The Bavarian capital has so far not been able to give UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin the promise for European Championship matches in front of spectators. The Executive Committee of the European Football Union UEFA recently postponed a decision on the European Championship locations in question until Friday.

Then a video conference is scheduled from 10 a.m. Bilbao and Dublin were also considered shaky candidates at the first pan-European EM, the Spaniards even received a rejection according to their own account.

According to the Sports show-Report, the three group games of the German national team will be played as planned in the Munich arena, but not the quarter-finals scheduled for July 2nd, “because significantly fewer fans will be allowed than in other European countries,” it said.

It is still unclear which venue Munich could replace in the quarter-finals. Hungary attracts with the promise to enable 100 percent utilization of the arena in Budapest. The city of Munich, on the other hand, had only submitted three scenarios with partial occupancy – a maximum of 27,000 spectators (40.2 percent of the total capacity) were planned.
