Euro 2020 Venues & allowed capacities

venueAfter one year and a half with tournaments’ postponement and matches behind closed doors due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the fans will return to football grounds this summer. Eleven host Euro 2020 venues and cities reopen for crowds with the main target of public health protection. The decision for allowed capacity on the qualified venues is taken mainly by the host nations. That’s the reason Dublin (Republic of Ireland) and Bilbao (Spain) removed from the list of host cities. UEFA announced that the Euro 2020 matches in Ireland would be moved to Saint Petersburg, Russia, and thοse of Bilbao, Spain, to Seville.

The opening match will take place at the “Stadio Olimpico,” Rome, and the Final at “Wembley Stadium,” London. The average capacity of selected venues is 59,000 seats, with the “Wembley,” the largest tournament’s stadium and “Parken,” Copenhagen, the smallest one. Like Hungary and Russia, some home countries put special restrictions on Euro 2020 matches, such as negative Covid-19 tests for ticket holders only to pass the boards. You can find all the valuable pieces of information based on the eleven host Euro 2020 venues in the handy list below.

Venue Location Group Highest Stage Capacity Allowed Capacity
Johan Cruyff Arena Amsterdam, Netherlands C Last 16 53,502 25-33% (at least 13,375)

Which Euro 2020 teams have the home advantage?

One crucial factor in football betting is the home advantage, especially in great tournaments like the European Championship. Nine of the 24 participants are host teams for Euro 2020 group stages, so you can bet on group winners or teams to qualify considering this parameter. The qualified host countries, like Italy (Group A), Russia and Denmark (Group B), Netherlands (Group C), will play at least two of three matches at home. England and Scotland complete the list of Euro 2020 teams with the venue privilege (Group D), along with Spain (Group E), Germany and Hungary (Group F).

If England reaches the later stages will have a critical home advantage, hosting at “Wembley,” London, the two semi-finals and the tournament’s final game. Gareth Southgate’s team will play the first knock-out match for the Last 16 Round at “Wembley” if it takes 1st place in Group D. Also, Scotland and Turkey could be the other beneficiaries; Scottish fans can travel from north borders to England if they have secured a ticket for the game. In addition, Turkey has two short trips to make; east to play in Baku, Azerbaijan, and west to Rome, Italy.

Euro 2020 Referees & VAR

refereeThere is a specific admission for all football fans; the referees can play a massive role in the final result’s setup. For the first time in European Championships’ history, a video four-strong team will be alongside each match official and assistants. Τhe purpose is to analyze all the in-question and controversial phases, making the right decisions. For the first time ever, a referee from South America, Fernando Rapallini, and his assistants will join the selected match officials for the tournament as a part of UEFA’s referee exchange pilot programme with CONMEBOL.

red arrowThe experience based on previous international tournaments (i.e., European Championships or World Cups) is one of the main criteria that define the referees’ selections. Their performances on high-profile Champions & Europa League fixtures and the number of mistakes made in domestic football are critical parameters for selection. The experience working with VAR also counts.

Will VAR be in use at Euro 2020?

VARIn September 2018, the UEFA authority approved the use of the Video Assistant Referee system for the first time at a European Championship. So, all the critical decisions made by the match officials will be operated and reviewed by the VAR in order to avoid the head referees’ errors. This invention creates new trends in many betting markets, such as the number of red cards, penalties, and the total goals scored. The VAR’s impact is massive, and you can understand that only checking the decision made on offside calls, where is necessary, on high-profile leagues. Here is the list of selected Euro 2020 referees for VAR and offside VAR.

Country Video Assistant Referees Offside VAR
England Stuart Attwell, Chris Cavanagh Lee Betts
France Jerome Brisard, Francois Letexier Benjamin Pages
Germany Bastian Dankert, Christian Dingert, Marco Fritz Christian Gittelmann
Italy Marco Di Bello, Massimiliano Irrati, Paolo Valeri Filippo Meli
Netherlands Kevin Blom, Pol van Boekel -
Poland Pawel Gil -
Portugal Joao Pinheiro -
Spain Alejandro Hernandez Hernandez, Juan Martinez Munuera, Jose Maria Sanchez Martinez Inigo Prieto Lopez de Cerain

Euro 2020 Rules Changes

red arrowDue to the Covid-19 pandemic, the UEFA Executive Committee approved some special rules for Euro 2020 in order to help the participants. According to these rules, all 24 national teams can use up to five substitutions in matches, with a sixth allowed in probable extra time. Although, the participants have only three opportunities to make these subs, with a fourth one allowed in extra time.

The UEC also approved the squads’ expansion from 23 players to 26. However, the qualified national teams can name for Euro 2020 matches a 23-man squad (the starting eleven and twelve subs). Every participant nation should have a minimum of thirteen available players for the Euro 2020 fixtures, including at least one goalkeeper. If a team can’t field this number due to positive Covid-19 cases, the match will be postponed and may be rescheduled after 48 hours of the initial scheduled date.
