Euro 2020: Netherlands – Ukraine
Are you ready for the European Championship in football? The kick-off will be in Rome on the eleventh of June, but the first match to be played in the Netherlands will be on the thirteenth of June as the Netherlands will play against Ukraine at the Johan Cruijff Arena.
The Johan Cruijff Arena is located just outside Amsterdam and if you would like to enter the arena to watch the match, you will need to have a valid ticket and proof of a negative Corona test. There will only be allowed entry for somewhere between 10,000 and 15,000 spectators, meaning that there will be a lot of empty seats at the stadium. In fact, the only city that will allow the stadium to be packed to its full capacity is Budapest, a city in which Portugal, France, and Hungary will play their matches.
There will be played four matches in Amsterdam during the European Championship in football.
The first match is the match between the Netherlands and Ukraine that will start at 21.00 on June 13th, and four days later the Netherlands will play against Austria at the same stadium, before they play their final group stage match against North Macedonia at the stadium on June 21.
There will also be played one match at the stadium during the knockout stage.
Maybe you will be one of the lucky people able to watch the match on the stadium? If you have a ticket and a negative Corona test, enjoy the match. If not, then you can still watch the match between the Netherlands and Ukraine on your local TV station or online. You will for sure not be alone, because there will be millions of people all across Europe and outside Europe that will watch this match online!
