The Daily Mail have revealed that the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium could host two matches in this summer’s European Championship that were scheduled to be held in Dublin.
Host cities have to commit to a goal of allowing fans into venues at a minimum of 25 per cent occupancy but doubts have been raised regarding whether that would be possible in Dublin’s Aviva Stadium due to Ireland’s stringent COVID restrictions.
Spurs have reportedly offered their stadium to UEFA for use during the tournament.
The 62,850–capacity venue has been inspected and meets all tournament requirements and UEFA have thus decided that the stadium would serve as a contingency plan in case the games cannot go ahead in Dublin.
At least two Group E games – Poland v Slovakia on June 14 and Sweden v Poland on June 23, which are scheduled to be played at the Aviva Stadium, could thus be played at Tottenham’s home ground.
However, Sweden’s clash with Slovakia on June 18 could be switched to Hampden Park to avoid holding two games in London on the same day.
