Gravina and Vaia meet to discuss a possible return of spectators in stadia

Today at the FIGC headquarters in Rome, President Gabriele Gravina met with Francesco Vaia, the director of the National Institute for Infectious Diseases Lazzaro Spallanzani Institute, to discuss and define the proposals and modus operandi for the organisation of the UEFA EURO 2020 fixtures in Rome from 11 June in total security.

After having been given the green light by the government to use up to 25% of the seating capacity at the Stadio Olimpico, the FIGC has been in constant contact with all of the relevant institutions to define a protocol, which contains the necessary health and organisational measures to host the event for the spectators’ benefit. As such, collaboration with the Roman institute has intensified to identify solutions that allow fans to access the grounds ensuring, on the one hand, a guarantee of requirements that are in line with the regulations on containment of the virus and, on the other hand, the easiest mobility and integration possible – also via the use of technology.

It has been the FIGC’s intention from the start to make available to the methodology that will be adopted for the Euros to ensure the return of fans to stadia via the gradual plan outlined in the latest Law Decree.
