However just 25% of the 72,698 seater Stadio Olimpico will be filled, as Coronavirus restrictions prevent the eleven host stadiums across Europe from selling out venues to fans.

The opening ceremony will see the tournament’s official song “We Are the People” played live for the first time.

Dutch DJ Martin Garrix is the composer of the track, which features U2 lead vocalist Bono and fellow band member Edge.

The 25-year-old had this to say about producing the song:

“It was amazing to work with Bono and Edge.

“They were very inspiring because they’re legends and because they have so much knowledge and wisdom.”

The ceremony this year will be far from the scenes of the opening ceremony five years ago at Euro 2016, which saw a packed Stade de France officially open the tournament in Paris.

French DJ David Guetta opened the tournament with Zara Larsson as they performed “This One’s For You” – the official song of Euro 2016.

Dimitri Payet’s 89th minute winner that day saw hosts France beat Romania 2-1 on their way to the final, which they eventually lost to Portugal in extra time.

Roberto Mancini’s Italy will be hoping to repeat the feat this year following the opening ceremony in Rome, although Italy are not the only host nation.

This year the sixtieth anniversary of the first European Championships sees the continent of Europe host the tournament, with eleven cities in eleven different countries hosting games.

Man Utd told to stump up £77m plus add-ons for Jadon Sancho transfer NOW as Borussia Dortmund set deadline

MANCHESTER UNITED have been told to stump up £77million plus add-ons for Jadon Sancho NOW as Borussia Dortmund set a deadline, reports say.

United have stepped up their pursuit for the England international by recently agreeing personal terms him.

Getty 1 Man Utd have been told to stump up £77m for Jadon Sancho as Dortmund set a deadline

But they are yet to strike up a deal with Dortmund, who are demanding no less than £77m (€90m) for their star winger.

According to talkSPORT, the Bundesliga side want any potential deal to be wrapped up before their their pre-season training camp stars on July 23.

United have already had bids in excess of £67m for Sancho turned down earlier in the window.

Last summer, they failed to bring the forward to Old Trafford having refused to meet Dortmund’s £108m price tag.

They instead opted to sign veteran striker Edison Cavani, 34, on a free, and have since agreed a one-year extension with the Uruguayan.

But they will not give up in their efforts to sign Sancho, 21, having made the ex-City academy product a priority transfer this summer.

Sancho, who is believed to be pushing for a move to United, is currently on international duty with England at the European Championships.

He is joined currently by United’s Harry Maguire, 28, Luke Shaw, 25, and Marcus Rashford, 23.

Sancho insisted heading into the delayed Euros that the speculation surrounding his future was not a distraction.

He said: “I’m cool about it. There’s always going to be speculation, especially when you do well. It’s just how you handle that on the pitch.

“You’ve got to keep doing what you’re doing, if you keep on doing that then I’m sure that won’t be a problem.

“The main thing is my football and that’s what I’m focusing on at the moment.”
