Euro 2020 games at Wembley "could fuel fresh spike in COVID"

Ministers warned there are 'no guarantees' that huge crowds will not spark outbreaks amid claims of Cabinet anxiety over the risks.

More than 60,000 fans will be able to attend England's semi-final match against Denmark tonight, as well as the final on Sunday, with Wembley allowed to have 75 per cent capacity.

The social distancing rules tell fans to stay in their seat during games, maintain their distance from others where possible and wear face masks when not seated. They also encourage those at games to avoid hugging and high fives during games but thousands ignored the guidelines during Italy's semi-final victory against Spain last night.
