More than 60,000 fans will be permitted to attend the UEFA Euro 2020 semi-finals and final at Wembley Stadium next month, the UK Government has confirmed today (Tuesday).

The matches will form part of the Government’s ongoing Events Research Programme to assess the wider return of fans to venues across the country. The increasing attendance will see Wembley operate at 75% capacity for the semi-finals on July 6-7 and the final on July 11.

Wembley will stage its third Euro 2020 match tonight when England takes on Czech Republic, with around 22,500 fans to be in attendance – the same number that was permitted for the matches against Croatia and Scotland earlier in the tournament.

Wembley will operate at a similar capacity for its first Round of 16 match on Saturday, but it was announced last week that around 40,000 fans will be permitted for the second Round of 16 fixture next Tuesday, which will feature England if Gareth Southgate’s team finishes top of Group D.
