“Realizing the complexity of the epidemic situation in European countries, our city is ready to host both the national teams of these countries and their fans,” the head of the city said.

According to Beglov, all the necessary sports infrastructure, including training bases, have remained in the city since the World Cup. For the remaining time, you just need to put them in order.

Recall that UEFA has moved from Dublin to St. Petersburg three matches of the European Championship, which will be held this summer. The teams of Poland, Slovakia and Sweden will play group stage matches at the Gazprom Arena stadium. Initially, St. Petersburg was supposed to host only three group matches with the participation of the national teams of Russia, Belgium and Finland, as well as the quarterfinals.
