There should now be space for more spectators in the parking lot
More fans will be able to attend the European Football Championship games in Copenhagen than originally agreed. The Danish government agreed on Thursday night with the majority of the parliamentary parties that 25,000 spectators may now be allowed to park in the stadium per game. So far, 15,900 stadium spectators had been scheduled for the first European Championship games on Danish soil. There is usually space for around 38,000 spectators in the parking lots.
Four European Championship games will be played in Copenhagen: the three group games of the Danish national team against Finland, Belgium and Russia as well as a round of 16.
However, the Danish Football Association already restricted on Thursday that, given the short lead time, it was not realistic to be able to allow 25,000 spectators for the Finland game on Saturday. One hopes to achieve that for the next two Denmark Games, said DBU boss Jakob Jensen of the Ritzau news agency.
