UEFA announced relocation of three Euro matches to St. Petersburg

The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) officially announced the relocation of three group stage European Championship matches from Dublin to St. Petersburg. It is reported in the official microblog of the organization on Twitter.

We are talking about the games of Group E: Poland vs Slovakia (June 14), Sweden vs Slovakia (June 18), and Sweden vs Poland (June 23). Some of the best strikers in the world – Zlatan Ibrahimovic (AC Milan) and Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich) play for the Scandinavians and the Poles, respectively. The Russian national team lost to the Slovaks (1-2) in their recent 2022 World Cup qualifier.

Earlier, the press reported that the Football Association of Ireland had informed UEFA that it could not guarantee the holding of matches of Euro with spectators.

Thus, St. Petersburg will host seven meetings of the upcoming tournament. Apart from the group E matches, the arena on Krestovsky Island will host two games involving the Russian national team (against Belgium on June 12 and Finland on the 16th), the meeting of the teams of Finland and Belgium on June 21, as well as one of the quarterfinals.
