Uefa boss rules out ghost games – will Munich now lose the EM?

Is that the end of the European Championship games in Munich?

Uefa President Aleksander Ceferin (53) increases the pressure on the twelve host cities almost three months before the start of the tournament.

The Slovenian on the English TV broadcaster “Sky Sports”: “Every host city must guarantee that fans are allowed to attend the games. The option of any game being played without fans is off the table. “

Should be difficult!

Like all host cities, Munich is working on a concept to allow games to be played with fans at the tournament (June 11th to July 11th). The responsible health department has the final say on whether spectators are allowed. If the authority decides against it, that would be the end of EM games in Germany.

Bayern made their last game to date in front of spectators over a year ago (March 8, 2020). According to the RKI, the 7-day incidence in Munich is 66.7 (as of Tuesday).

The Croatian newspaper “Sportske novosti” also reports that Uefa has set the host cities a deadline of April 20 as to how many fans (one third, 50 to 100 percent or full stadiums) will be allowed.

The Allianz Arena is the venue for the three German group matches against France (June 15), Portugal (June 19) and Hungary (June 23) as well as a quarter-finals (July 2).
