UEFA plans to host Euro 2020 with a limited number of spectators.

The Danish government has confirmed that the Euro competition, part of which will be held in the country, will be attended by at least 11,000 spectators.

Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, will host four games of the competition, and now the Danish Ministry of Culture has announced plans to have a limited number of fans due to the coronavirus pandemic in stadiums.

A statement on the Danish Ministry of Culture's website read:

"The European Football Championship is a unique and historic event in Denmark.

"The government has therefore decided to allow at least 11,000-12,000 spectators for the four matches at the Parken stadium.

"At the same time, we will look at whether there can be even more spectators in the Parken if health conditions allow.

"We have also informed the DBU (the Danish football federation) and UEFA that it may be necessary to close to spectators if there is a spread of infection, so it will be unjustifiable from a health point of view to allow spectators to the matches."

UEFA has asked the 12 host cities to announce the minimum number of fans who will be able to attend the stadiums by April 7. A meeting will also be held on April 19, during which the final decision on the presence of the spectators will be made.
