Euro 2016 matches could be played behind closed doors due to terrorism

With the tournament barely 3 months away, UEFA vice-president Giancarlo Abete has suggested that matches could be played without spectators following the cur attacks in Brussels which gulped 34 lives.

UEFA released a statement in which it “reaffirmed its commitment in placing safety and security at the centre of its organisational plans for Euro 2016, but Abete believes more drastic measures may have to be implemented.

He told Radio 24: 
Euro 2016 is the kind of event we can’t delay or postpone. We can’t exclude the possibility of playing behind closed doors as we cannot exclude terrorism.
The EURO 2016 Tournament which is the biggest football tournament for European nations, will be held across 10 stadiums in 10 cities in France with the capacity of the smallest stadium being 33,000 while the largest being 81,000 (Stade de France) making it an easy target for terrorists attack.
