Fans allowed to attend Euro 2020 international fixtures in Rome, Italy.
On Tuesday, the Italian Government came to a decision for fans to attend the Euro 2020 matches scheduled for Rome’s Stadio Olimpico, including the tournament’s opening show performance.
Rome is ready to host the opening match for the delayed Euro League between Italy and Turkey from Group A on Friday, June 11.
“We will cooperate in synergy with sport sub-secretary Valentina Vezzali who is accompanying us down this path. We received a strong signal for this restart which we will promptly transfer to UEFA.,” the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) said.
The European Championship will run until July 11. The UEFA Euro 2020 officials have currently posed to host matches played in Rome and 11 other cities, namely; London, Baku, Munich, Budapest, Bucharest, Glasgow, Bilbao, Saint Petersburg, Copenhagen, Dublin, and Amsterdam. European football’s governing body has given all 12 host cities a deadline till Wednesday to present their health plans to allow at least a minor fan population into stadiums.
The total accommodation of fans will undoubtedly be limited, but the officials are yet to decide on a final number. Although the Government has seemingly given the all-clear, it also added that the Technical and Scientific Committee (CTS) would have to clarify the protocols for public events to take place in safe conditions. It all depends on how well the Covid vaccination process goes.
To tighten the safety net, even more, an app called ‘Mitiga’ is set to launch this week in ties with The Italian federation. Through this app, the ticket holders would be able to register their COVID vaccination and swab test history onto the app itself.
How it works:
The app user must go to an authorized center to request the registration on the vaccination platform already carried out or to carry out a rapid or molecular swab and ask for the registration of any negativity. The system will then generate a QR code which will be scanned at the stadium entrance.
If the number of tickets sold happen to exceed the given capacity allowed in the stadium, the seats would be assigned through the process of lotto or lucky draws, Others will be entitled to a full refund.
