LONDONERS have a chance to watch Euro 2020 final at Wembley Stadium as mayor Sadiq Khan offers a golden ticket for two in an online draw who have signed up for their first dose of Covid vaccine by Thursday (8).
People of the capital city can enter the contest by providing proof that they attended a walk-in appointment this week for their first jab, or that they have booked a slot to get their first vaccination.
The person who wins the lucky draw gets to attend Sunday’s final in person along with one guest.
MailOnline reports entrants for the online draw who post on social media about having or booking to take the vaccine will be entered into the draw twice. The full details would be then made available on Khan’s social media on Wednesday (7) morning.
Moreover, Khan is also giving away 50 pairs of tickets to the Trafalgar Square Fan Zone to those who are due to get their first jab.
The London mayor said: “It’s really important we continue to boost the number of young people coming forward to be vaccinated.
“To help encourage more people to book their life-saving jabs, we are offering Londoners a golden opportunity to watch the Euro 2020 final in the iconic Trafalgar Square Fan Zone – with one lucky Londoner and a guest invited to see the game at the home of English football, Wembley Stadium.
“It could be an amazing day for our nation.”
He added: “We are already seeing the big difference that the vaccine is making in our fight against the virus, but the next two weeks are absolutely crucial in ensuring restrictions are lifted.
“I urge all Londoners to get both doses of the vaccine as soon as possible.
“As a global city we are leading the way in the rollout of the vaccine, and we will continue to do all we can to improve access; from providing access to vaccine centres at convenient times for Londoners’ busy lives, as well as opening walk-in centres, for Londoners regardless of immigration status and GP registration.”
England is all set to host Euro 2020’s semifinal and final at Wembley.
