UEFA considers reducing host cities for the Euros because of COVID-19

Despite the fact that the Euro is scheduled to be played in 12 cities, the coronavirus pandemic could force these venues to be reduced to nine. Ceferin revealed that there are problems with three of them.

After the coronavirus pandemic caused the postponement of the European Championship to 2021, UEFA is still working to ensure a safe and attractive tournament in a year's time. 

The European championship was scheduled to be played in 12 cities, something that is now unsafe due to the ever-increasing contagion of COVID-19 throughout the world.

The evolution of the pandemic will naturally mark the celebration of the Euro, so UEFA is already working on different scenarios, leaving open the possibility of reducing the number of venues to only nine.

"We have had talks with nine cities and everything is ready. With three cities we have some problems, so we will discuss later. In principle, we will do it in 12 cities. But if not, we are ready to do it in ten, nine or eight", said Aleksander Ceferin in an interview with 'beIN Sports'.

He also gave his views on the return of the Bundesliga: "We trust the Germans, their authorities are very serious. It's not just about football. We're talking about depressed people because we're locked up, because there's a lot of uncertainty, and football takes life to a normal level. Football brings positive energy.
