Three towns threatened with eviction

Nothing is official yet, but Euro 2020 football could finally be held in a reduced number of cities. With 100 days to go, UEFA hinted on Wednesday (March 3rd) that three of the 12 venues planned could be removed from the system because of the risks linked to the health crisis: Bilbao, Dublin and Glasgow. The information was released by AP, the news agency citing anonymous sources familiar with the matter. UEFA wants to settle the matter definitively in the coming weeks. The European body would also like the Euro 2020 fixtures, postponed last year by a full year, to be able to take place in stadiums at least filled to 50% of their capacity. It would be ready to remove countries and cities that would not be able to guarantee a minimum of spectators in the stands, from the original plan.
