Czech fans drop plan to charter plane to Baku for Denmark game

Czech fans have abandoned a plan to charter a plane to Baku in Azerbaijan to see the Czech Republic play Denmark in the quarter-finals of the European Football Championship on Saturday. The national team’s fan club said that in the end two few supporters were willing to go to Baku, despite around 300 having previously expressed interest.

The Czech Ministry of Health had called on fans to stay home, pointing out that it considers Azerbaijan as a very high risk state as regards Covid-19.
