Euro 2020, Merkel wand Johnson: “Too many spectators at Wembley”

“The British government will make its own decisions, but I am concerned and skeptical that this is a good thing and not a bit too much.” German Chancellor Angela Merkel has thus expressed herself on London’s plan to increase the number of spectators for the semi-finals and the final of Euro 2020 at Wembley despite fears related to the delta variant. In her meeting today in Checkers with British Premier Boris Johnson, Merkel did not hesitate to point out that far fewer tickets were sold at the matches played in Munich. 60,000 spectators will be admitted to Wembley on Tuesday and Wednesday for the semi-finals and 45,000 for the final on Saturday 11. In Monaco, no more than 14,500 fans were admitted to the stadium for all European matches. “The crucial point is that here in Britain we have built a solid wall with the vaccination program,” Johnson replied.
