EM games without fans for Ceferin are quite possible
Ceferin has to juggle a few variables with regard to EM
Despite recent commitments from host cities such as Munich for European Championship games in front of spectators, UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin said that games without fans are still conceivable. “The local authorities decide before the games whether spectators are allowed or not,” said the head of the European Football Union (UEFA) of “Welt am Sonntag”. Ceferin denied that UEFA had asked the host cities to guarantee games with fans.
“What we want is the promise that spectators can come if the situation allows,” said the 53-year-old Slovenian. “You don't believe that we insist on spectators if the situation on site does not allow it in summer.” Tests, hygiene concepts and vaccinations made him optimistic. He hoped the tournament would be “the comeback of football as we know it and, hopefully, the comeback of normal life,” said the UEFA President.
