Football: EURO 2016 in France might see lockout
UEFA Executive Committee says some matches of the all-Europe competition might be played behind closed doors
Several matches of UEFA EURO 2016 in France could be played behind closed doors due to terrorist threats. Giancarlo Abete, Vice President of UEFA Executive Committee, said this on March 23 as quoted by Goal.com.
"Euro 2016 is the sort of event one can’t postpone or delay. If we can’t cope with terrorism, there’s a chance matches will be played without fans on stadiums”, Abete said.
As is known, security measures have been increased in many European countries due to the terrorist attacks in Brussels on March 22. The blasts in Zaventem airport and at Maelbeek underground station took lives of at least 31 people; about 200 were injured.
