The Government's border restrictions apply to fans intending to travel from overseas to attend the UEFA European Championships (EURO 2020) Final on 11 July. Any fans who have travelled or transited through a ‘red’ or ‘amber’ list country in the last 10 days, must have arrived in the UK in time to complete their full testing and quarantine requirements. Only once they have been cleared from quarantine can they attend the final at Wembley. If someone seeks to enter the country with the clear intention of breaching quarantine, they may be denied entry and their tickets may be cancelled.
