BREAKING: UEFA announce EURO 2020 squad lists increased to 26 players


The UEFA Executive Committee have today approved ‘special rules’ for the EURO 2020 finals this summer, with squad lists being increased from 23 to 26 players.

The maximum number of players permitted on the match sheet for each individual match will remain at 23, but all participating teams can name 26 players in their squads for the tournament.

UEFA wrote on their official website that the decision was made to: “mitigate the risks of teams facing a shortage of available players for certain matches due to possible positive COVID-19 tests results and subsequent quarantine measures ordered by competent authorities” in order to “guarantee the smooth running and continuity of the competition in light of the COVID-19 pandemic”.
