Euro 2020, one year late due to the pandemic, finally begins in Italy against Turkey at the Rome Olympic Stadium today Friday 11th June 2021.
The other host cities are London, Glasgow, Amsterdam, Baku, Bucharest, Budapest, Copenhagen, Munich, Rome and Seville.
The pandemic has forced UEFA, the governing body of European football, to Postpone the game One year. Though the date has changed, the name still remains Euro 2020.
Even before the Covid-19 pandemic hit Europe, UEFA had already prepared and manufactured a multitude of merchandising well in advance of the tournament with the original ‘Euro 2020’ logo on it. In order to save sending all the Euro 2020 merchandise to waste, it makes sense to stick with the original Euro 2020 name.
The restrictions on the number of viewers have led to a reduction in estimated revenue of at least 300 million euros, mainly due to the loss of ticketing and entertainment.
Reports say, the additional cost of health and hygiene measures amount to 10 million euros.
