UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin says he is confident the postponed Euro 2020 tournament will go ahead next year despite a fresh wave of COVID-19 cases across Europe, though it could be staged in fewer than the planned 12 countries if necessary.

The 24-team tournament was pushed back by a year due to the pandemic but a new surge of novel coronavirus infections has raised doubts over whether it can be played in the rescheduled June-July 2021 slot.

“We are always concerned about the situation (but) we are absolutely sure that the Euro will be played,” Ceferin told the Spanish pay TV network Movistar+.

“The plan is that we do the Euro exactly as it is. “But I have to say that, instead of 12 countries, we could do a Euro instead in 11, in eight, in five or in one country.”
