UEFA EURO 2020
The government has just published the latest coronavirus regulations, the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (Steps) (England) Regulations 2021, which come into force on 29th March. Travel out of the country is banned unless there is a reasonable excuse. Supporting the England football team is not in the Schedule of reasonable excuses.
The regulations expire at the end of 30th June 2021.
This means we will not be able to travel to Copenhagen for the R16 match on 28th June, should we finish second in the group. Nor would we be able to go to Bilbao or Budapest on 27th June if we finished 3rd and qualified for one of those destinations. We would be able to go to Dublin on 30th June if we won the group as Ireland is in the "common travel area". We would also be OK for Glasgow.
The QFs are in July.
In reply to Nick Borthwick:
I hope you're right. We do seem to be getting amending regulations thick and fast regarding coronavirus restrictions and it is possible that these latest regulations may not run their full course. I did look hard for a clause which allowed the Secretary of State to disapply the restriction on travel abroad and I could not find such a power.
