In an interview for the German press agency dpa, Mayer explained that UEFA has not yet taken a final decision, but it appears that the meetings will be played behind closed doors, and that the host countries will have to follow the rules of the european body of football, even if countries like Serbia and Belarus allow the presence of supporters.

“The competitions are based on the rules of UEFA,” insisted Meyer. “Including in the countries mentioned, a person may not allow a stadium full against the UEFA requirements if it is a competition of UEFA and if the rules do not allow spectators. “
