This will be the highest number in a sporting event in Britain in more than 15 months, after the number of attendance decreased significantly due to the Corona virus.

“The finals will be unforgettable moments on the road to national recovery from the pandemic,” said British Sports and Culture Minister Oliver Dowden.

UEFA President Aleksandar Ceferin welcomed the decision, saying: “It is fantastic news because it will enable a large number of fans of the game to be present in the last three matches of the European Cup at Wembley Stadium.”

“I am very grateful to the British Prime Minister and the British Government for the great work they have done to put these arrangements in place with us to make the tournament a resounding success at Wembley.”

“This tournament represents a glimmer of hope to reassure the world that we are gradually returning to our normal life, and this is an additional step in this field,” he added.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said, “I am very pleased that Wembley Stadium can accommodate 75% of its total capacity for the semi-finals and final of the European Championship. The matches will be broadcast all over the world and we will prove to the world that when it comes to organizing sporting events, London cannot be beat in this field”.
