Do they check names on tickets and the like?

UEFA and FIFA always say tickets are not transferrable.  They say they check names.

I have never heard of anyone ever been denied entry to a game at a Euros or World Cup because the name on their passport doesn't match the name on their ticket.  

Now even allowing for the above a new condition was inserted in the latest email

"Should you or your guests no longer be able to attend UEFA EURO 2020™ for medical reasons, including COVID-19, you will have the option to transfer the ticket(s) to friends or family members."

So in June if Paddy thinks he might have COVID he can pass his ticket on to his mate Piotr with UEFA's blessing. 

Reading between the lines I think UEFA want tickets back.  Reduced capacity is the likely outcome.

Shame. Had tickets for all the games in Dublin. Would’ve been nice to see the French or Germans knock the English out in the Aviva. I’d say the Gardai will be delighted they won’t have to deal with the Brexit lads if the games are moved.

A poll in Japan was in favour of cancelling.

The IOC have ruled out moving them to 2022.
So it’s either held or cancelled.
Olympics is very unpopular in Japan right now, big political hot potato, usual debate of it being a waste of money. There's a load of new costs with delaying it a year

Id prefer the Euro to be moved to Summer 2022 - even tho we aren’t there I’d rather see a tournament full with fans. It will be the first time for many (Scots, Macedonia etc)

The World Cup is in Nov/Dec so it’s possible but will mean a lot of football for the players.  

Clubs would never agree this happening. UEFA will make sure it happens this year in some way or another. 
I'm 90% sure it'll be held in one country with no fans. I just can't see there being enough vaccinated in time for it. You've 8 host countries, 24 competing countries, bit of overlap so call it 20 countries that need to be well progressed with their vaccines.

Which country would like the money and don’t give a flying f**k if COVID cases go up?
Hello Russia!!

The problem is a lot of countries won’t want to give up their games.
Not a hope UK gives up the final and semifinal. 

I’d bet UEFA will keep as is to please the masses. 
It will be left to each country to decide how many fans at the games.

Ha! Thats a fair point. 
Yeah, you're probably right. Even though a bunch of people will be vaccinated, the best they can probably hope for is reduced capacity.

I'd have thought UK would be a good bet, they're mad to win it as a big national solidarity "we're better without Europe" triumph. Would be excellent propaganda. They already had the semis and finals, and could leave the Glasgow games. Plenty of suitable stadiums

The UK would be in the best position to host it given they'll have the bulk of the population vaccinated by the end of spring or at least have all those deemed vulnerable done and dusted in about 6 weeks time. Fatalities will very low by the time uefa sit down in March to make a decision. They are way ahead of other potential single country host candidates in Europe and as Shedite said would be eager to host it following Brexit.

UK and Germany the only sensible options with UK in front, Germany hosting in 2024 and doubt politically they’d want it but this is football so sense doesn’t always come into it. They’ll try to push ahead with the multi hosts approach.

Wouldn't rule Russia out, they were the ones mentioned first and are also flying through their vaccinations as of late

England could be more likely given they were to host the semis and final anyway

They have the infrastructure and as you say already have both semifinals and final which they won’t give up.
Also the UK should have everybody over 50 vaccinated by June.

Even without away fans they could (mostly) fill the stadiums locally.

After the stories from last week, UEFA have now clarified Euro 2020 ticket situation, stating if : "a match is moved to a venue which is more than 50km away from original venue, ticket buyers would be entitled to full refund if they cannot, or do not wish to, attend.

Ffs, why could they not have done this last week? I had a ticket for the R16 match at Wembley which I have given up for refund. I would have held onto it if they had made this clear in the first place. Angry

Oh good, I'll try that, thanks CC. Thumbs Up

Edit: Just tried it, and yes, it worked. Clap

Btw the deadline is actually 26th January, just in case anyone is leaving it till near the last minute to make up their minds.
