Munich's city cannot guarantee that spectators will be at least partially allowed back into the Allianz Arena during the Euro 2020 tournament, mayor Dieter Reiter said, Report informs.
The European football governing body UEFA wants fans in the stadiums for the June 11-July 11 tournaments set to be played in 12 cities across the continent, reports DPA.
Venues, where there is a threat of games being played behind closed doors owing to the coronavirus pandemic, could be dropped as hosts.
Reiter said he would like to see fans return to the Munich stadium, where Germany will play all three group-stage matches and a quarter-final. "But from today's point of view, it can't, unfortunately, be ruled out that no spectators can be admitted to the games in June due to the (Covid-19) infection situation and the corresponding requirements of the Bavarian health authorities," he said in a statement.
Eight host cities have promised to allow fans back in the stadiums for the tournament postponed by one year due to the pandemic.
UEFA said on Friday that Munich, Rome, Bilbao, and Dublin have to submit 'additional information on the spectators' situation by April 19, when a final decision on the host cities is to be made by the UEFA executive committee.
