The City of Geneva decided on Friday to authorize the broadcast of Euro matches on the terraces, after the crowd movements which took place in the Plainpalais fan zone on Wednesday evening.

The Euro football 2024 matches can be broadcast from Friday evening on the terraces in the City of Geneva. This decision was taken due to the crowd movements which took place on Wednesday evening in the Plainpalais fan zone, crowded for the Switzerland-Scotland match.

“If allowing matches to be broadcast on the terrace relieves a little pressure on the fan zone, as some have implied, then so much the better”

Marie Barbey-Chpuis, administrative advisor of the City of Geneva

“But the crux of the matter remains the security system to be ensured inside and outside the fan zone,” underlined the magistrate in the RTS show Forum. “In politics, you must not be narrow-minded. I take new facts into account,” she added.

It was initially planned to authorize the broadcast of matches on the terrace only from the quarter-finals onwards. This measure aimed to strike a balance with the residents’ right to tranquility. (jch/ats)
