    Euro 2020 could be played in front of fans in stadiums next summer across Europe, according to UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin.   

    The Slovenian admitted that the organisers are optimistic supporters will be able to return in strong numbers but a number of different contingency plans are being made with so much uncertainty about how the coronavirus crisis will affect matters. 

    ‘For the moment, we are planning the Euro exactly as we want it to be. We are considering how to do it with fans, without fans, or with 30, 50 or 70 percent (of capacity in stadiums),’ he told German broadcaster ARD.

    ‘If you had asked me in February if I was prepared for a pandemic that would stop the world, I would have said you were crazy.

    ‘But now we’re well prepared. We’re smarter and stronger than last year as we now know that anything can happen.’

    When asked whether he would endorse the idea of spreading games across Europe for the tournament again, Ceferin admitted the logistical nightmare would be tough to back. 

    ‘I don’t think I would support that again,’ he said. ‘It’s a big challenge, but I’m sure the Euros will be played next year’.
