According to European sources, there is an immediate agreement between the European Football Association “UEFA” and the United Kingdom to bring 60,000 fans to the European finals.
The Euro 2020 tournament will take place in various countries, with Wembley Stadium hosting the final on July 11.

The report points out that the results will be released next Tuesday, and that allowing the media, sponsors and celebrities to attend the competition will determine whether the final will take place in London or move to another country, such as Hungary, which has more travel restrictions. Flexible.
