It is now highly unlikely that Dublin will be able  to host any Euro 2021 championships if UEFA maintain its insistence on every stadium being quarter full, Tanaiste Leo Varadkar said today.

The delayed competition is due to be run off in June across the continent in 12 cities for the first time. Three cities, Dublin, Munich and Bilbao say they cannot guarantee any spectator attendance due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Governing body UEFA will make a decision on these cities on Friday. Dublin’s Aviva was set to host three ties plus a last-16 clash, but Mr Varadkar felt it would be too soon to pledge such a spectator attendance.

“We’re just very cautious about that, we just think June is too soon,” he said on Today FM.
