UEFA responds to Italy’s request to move the European Cup final from Wembley



The European Football Association confirmed that it does not intend to replace Wembley Stadium from hosting the European Cup final, after the Italian Prime Minister requested that the matches be moved from Britain after the high number of injuries in Corona.

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi said on Monday that he would prefer to host the European Championship final in Rome rather than “a country where infections are increasing rapidly.”

But a UEFA spokesman quickly confirmed in an email today, Tuesday, that “UEFA, the FA and the English authorities are working closely together and successfully to hold the semi-finals and final of the European Championship at Wembley and there are no plans to change the stadium “.

The famous Wembley Stadium in London will host the semi-final matches on the sixth and seventh of next July, before the final is held on the 11th of the same month.

Britain recorded 10,633 new infections with the Corona virus, along with the death of five people, yesterday, Monday, bringing the total to more than 4.63 million infected, along with the death of 127,976 people.
