After months of speculation, the Scottish FA confirmed that Scotland would be able to host Euro 2020.

All matches are being held at a 50 per cent capacity.

DENMARK

Parken Stadium, Copenhagen (38,065 capacity)

The Danish capital was the first city to announce in 2021 that it would host Euro 2020 with fans.

Copenhagen's games are being held at a 75 per cent capacity.

RUSSIA

Krestovsky Stadium, St Petersburg (68,134 capacity)

St Petersburg hosted two of Russia's three home group games plus Finland vs Belgium, and will host one quarter-final.

In addition, it was handed the three group games that were set to be hosted by Dublin.

All matches are being played at a 50 per cent capacity.

Russia has been holding matches at half full stadiums throughout this season, while most of Europe has been playing behind closed doors due to coronavirus.

ROMANIA

Arena Nationala, Bucharest (55,600 capacity)

Romania failed to qualify for Euro 2020 but their national stadium hosted three matches from Group C and is hosting France vs Switzerland in the last 16.

Games in Bucharest are being held at a 25-45 per cent capacity.

Budapest hosted two of Hungary's three group matches, plus a repeat of the Euro 2016 final between Portugal and France.

The Hungarian capital is the only city to announce that games will be hosted at full capacity, subject to strict entry requirements.

ITALY

Stadio Olimpico, Rome (72,698 capacity)

Italy was given extra time by Uefa to confirm that it could host fans at Euro 2020.

And the Stadio Olimpico in Rome is hosting games at a 25-45 per cent capacity.

Rome is hosting all of Italy's group matches and a quarter-final which could involve England.

GERMANY

Allianz Arena (70,000 capacity)

The last of the original host cities to be announced – Munich was only confirmed on April 23.

The German city has committed to host matches in front of a minimum of 14,500 fans – a 22 per cent capacity – the lowest of all the host cities.

It will host all Germany group games and a quarter-final.

SPAIN

Estadio de la Cartuja, Seville (60,000)

A last minute addition, Seville is hosting the games that would have been held in Bilbao after the Spanish FA deemed the Basque Government's conditions for hosting matches there "impossible" to meet.

The stadium is well prepared to host games, having been the Spanish FA's de facto home during the pandemic.

Estadio de la Cartuja has hosted all Spain games, two Copa del Rey finals and the Spanish Super Cup in the past 12 months.

Euro 2020 games there will be played at a 25-45 per cent capacity.

Which cities have been removed from hosting Euro 2020?

The following countries failed to give Uefa the assurances they need to host Euro 2020.

IRELAND

Aviva Stadium, Dublin (51,700 capacity)

Dublin will miss out on Euro 2020 after failing to give Uefa guarantees that any fans will be allowed to attend matches.

The Irish capital was set to host three Group E matches and a last 16 game that may well have ended up involving England.

The three group matches it would have hosted have gone to St Petersburg while the last 16 match will be held at Wembley.

SPAIN

San Mames, Bilbao (53,322 capacity)

Bilbao did commit to meet Uefa's minimum requirement of a 25 per cent capacity, however the Spanish FA refused to back their submission due to the conditions attached.

The Basque government had stated that it would be able to host games provided 60 per cent of the Basque country and the rest of Spain had been vaccinated and less than two per cent of those in hospital were coronavirus patients.

But the Spanish FA labelled these conditions "impossible" to meet.

As a result, Seville will host the matches that were set for Bilbao.

Will any cities allow fans of other countries to travel?

The following countries are set to allowing away fans to travel.

AZERBAIJAN

Azerbaijan has announced that fans of all travelling teamswill be able to submit a negative PCR test to enter the country instead of quarantining.

This offer only applies to citizens or residents of the participating countries.

Fans who submit a negative PCR test and restrict their stay in Romania to three days are also allowed to attend.
