The city of Munich is under question as EM host this summer.
As the European Football Association announced, the Bavarian capital, in which all group games for the German national team are to take place, is one of four organizers who have to submit “additional information” for the games by 19 April.
Only then will a decision be taken regarding the implementation of the planned games at the respective locations. The key point is the entry of spectators who have already promised eight European Championship cities.
With Munich, Rome, where the opening game begins on June 11, Bilbao and Dublin are suspects. UEFA listed London, Glasgow, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Budapest, Bucharest, St Petersburg and Baku with various information on potential occupancy rates of stadiums. Munich partner hosts Hungary even want to enable games in Budapest in front of a full home.
UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin met with Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) in Munich last Wednesday. It was a good meeting, Ceferin said. “And I am also sure that the Prime Minister is doing his best to ensure that EM will be here.”
The national team is scheduled to host three group matches against world champions France (June 15), European champions Portugal (June 19) and co-hosts Hungary (June 23), as well as the quarter-finals (July 2). FC Bayern Stadium.
