“Sensible accommodations” can be made with UEFA over whether VIPs and foreign fans will get access to England for key Euro 2020 matches, says Prime Minister Boris Johnson. He confirmed discussions with European football’s governing body were being held over the Euro 2020 semi-finals and final, which are due to be held at London’s Wembley Stadium. 

It has been claimed the games could be moved to Hungary, where COVID rues are more relaxed.

Asked if the government would allow quarantine exemptions for UEFA VIPs and fans, Johnson said: “We’ll do what we have to do to keep the country safe from COVID, that’s obviously going to be our priority.

“We’ll be talking to UEFA about what they want and see if we can make some sensible accommodations.

“But the priority obviously has to be public health.”
