The Hungarian capital also offered itself as an emergency venue for a number of Champions League matches last season when coronavirus restrictions caused complications for other venues.
Uefa said discussions with authorities in London centred on allowing fans of participating teams to attend matches “using a strict testing and bubble concept that would mean their stay in the UK would be less than 24 hours and their movements would be restricted to approved transport and venues only”.
Uefa said it understood the pressures the UK government faced. It hoped discussions would reach a “satisfactory conclusion” and was delighted that capacity at Wembley was scheduled to go up to at least 50 per cent for the knockout round matches.
Under current regulations in England, fans travelling from countries on the government’s amber list must quarantine for 10 days on arrival, making it difficult for them to fly in for games.
Outside of the three British teams – England, Scotland and Wales – all other competing countries are on the amber list, except for Turkey which is on the stricter red list.
The UK government has agreed to increase capacity at Wembley to 50 per cent for the knockout stage, meaning crowds of 40,000 rather than the group stage limit of 22,500.
Wembley will also host two round-of-16 matches with the second one, on June 29th, having a 50 per cent capacity.
