A significant amount of Denmark supporters have arrived in Amsterdam ahead of their country’s eagerly-anticipated Euro 2020 last-16 clash against Wales.

While Welsh fans aren’t permitted to attend the game at the Johan Cruyff Arena because of coronavirus restrictions, Denmark fans were allowed to travel if they entered and left Holland within 12 hours.

If they followed those instructions then fans would be able to avoid having to quarantine in Holland.

Both Wales and Denmark aren’t on Holland’s safe country list. 

Erik Brogger, director of Denmark’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Citizen Service, told a press conference on Tuesday:  ‘You can get to football, but you have to plan quite carefully if you do not want to risk being quarantined in a hotel room.

‘It should be technically possible, but you have to plan it pretty carefully.

‘For most people, it will probably be better to stay at home. We encourage you to watch the match at home.’

Danish authorities said that fans are allowed to attend if fans present a negative PCR test that is a maximum of 72 hours old.

They must subsequently isolate for ten days when they return to Denmark, but are able to test themselves out of it on the fifth day. In addition, they must bring a quarantine certificate showing where they want to stay in isolation.

The game kicks off at 5pm UK time.
