England will face Italy in the Euro 2020 final on Sunday, their first major tournament final in 55 years.
Gareth Southgate’s side are just one game away from lifting the Henri Delaunay Trophy for the first time in the nation’s history. However, their opponents Italy will be looking to prevent it from coming home.
Both sides have impressed thus far in the competition, with England only conceding one goal upto the final, while Italy have scored the second highest (12) overall.
The Three Lions, despite being classed as the away team, will have the home advantage in this match – with the game being played at England’s national stadium, Wembley.

This will also be Southgate’s team’s sixth match of the tournament at their home ground, with their only other game being played in Rome at the Stadio Olimpico in their quarter-final clash with Ukraine.
Italy are no stranger to Wembley though. The nation will be playing their third Euro 2020 game at the venue, having played their Round of 16 tie with Austria, as well as their semi-final clash with Spain there.

England have had to play in front of several different capacity crowds at Wembley, with their opening game of the competition against Croatia seeing 22.500 supporters in the stadium. This was the same for their other two Group D games as well.
The capacity was increased to 50 percent (45,000) for the Three Lions’ Round of 16 clash with Germany. However, only 40,000 fans saw Southgate’s men beat their rivals 2-0.
During the semi-final between England and Denmark on Wednesday, the number of supporters in attendance at the stadium was increased to 60,000 – 75 percent of Wembley’s full capacity.
So, how many fans will be allowed to attend the final at Wembley on Sunday?
It has been confirmed by the UK Government that the stadium will be at three quarter capacity (60,000) for the Euro 2020 final between England and Italy on Sunday.
However, it's not just a case of buying your ticket and turning up to Wembley to support the Three Lions in their first-ever Euros final. supporters have a couple of options before they will be granted access to the stadium.

The first is, if a fan is fully vaccinated, they must prove they have had both Covid-19 vaccinations no earlier than 14 days before the final. This can be done via the NHS app which has an individual’s vaccine record on it.
If a supporter is not fully vaccinated, then they must show proof of a negative covid test within the last 48 hours before the final. This can be done via a lateral flow test.
It was announced on Monday by Prime Minister Boris Johnson that as of July 19 all restrictions on capacities of venue in England will be lifted, therefore if chosen as the host venue for The Three Lions’ World Cup Qualifier venue against Andorra on September 5, Wembley will be able to welcome 90,000 fans to the stadium.
