The Italian Government has given the all-clear for the Stadio Olimpico in Rome to host at least 25 per cent capacity at Euro 2020.

News agency ANSA announces that the letter has been sent by the Minister for Sport, passed on to the FIGC and will then be handed over to UEFA.

It was a necessary step by tomorrow to ensure UEFA did not remove the four matches from Rome and Italy, including the opening ceremony on June 11.

The Italian Government has given the all-clear for the Stadio Olimpico in Rome to host at least 25 per cent capacity at Euro 2020.

News agency ANSA announces that the letter has been sent by the Minister for Sport, passed on to the FIGC and will then be handed over to UEFA.

It was a necessary step by tomorrow to ensure UEFA did not remove the four matches from Rome and Italy, including the opening ceremony on June 11.

There were concerns that the CTS (technical scientific committee) was unwilling to commit to 25 per cent capacity when still so far away from the event in June.

However, as UEFA considered this an absolute requirement for cities hosting games in the tournament, they were pushed to accept or lose the matches.

The technical details of how this will be achieved and the protocol are not yet clear, nor are they even close to being decided yet.

This is more of a pledge that at least 25 per cent capacity will be guaranteed by June 11.
