Euro 2020: Danish fans said they could travel to Amsterdam but Welsh fans banned from attending round of 16


Danish fans have been told they can travel to Amsterdam to watch the round of 16 of Euro 2020 in the Netherlands, a match to which Welsh fans are banned.

It was initially reported on Monday that the two groups of supporters would not be allowed to attend the match as the two nations were not on the Netherlands’ safe country list.

But Erik Brogger, director of the citizen service at the Danish Foreign Ministry, said Danish fans could avoid quarantine in Holland if they entered and left the country within 12 hours.

“You can go to football, but you have to plan pretty carefully if you don’t want to risk being quarantined in a hotel room,” Brogger said, quoted by Danish media. Politics.

“It should be technically possible, but you have to plan it pretty carefully.

“For most people, it will probably be better to stay home. We encourage you to watch the game at home. “

Danish authorities have said fans can travel if they show a negative PCR test dating back no more than 72 hours.

They have to self-isolate for 10 days – but with the option to get out on the fifth day – and bring a quarantine certificate stating where you want to stay in isolation.

Denmark beat Russia 4-1 in Copenhagen on Monday to move up to second in Group B.

Welsh Health Minister Eluned Morgan said on Monday police in Amsterdam would “not let Welsh fans into the country”.

Prime Minister Mark Drakeford had previously urged Welsh fans not to attend Wales group matches in Azerbaijan and Italy.

A few hundred Welsh fans traveled to Baku and Rome to see Wales finish second in Group A and advance to the final 16.

If Wales win their last round of 16 game, they will return to Baku for the quarter-finals on July 3.
