The Mayor of London will invite a lucky winner and their guest to the Euro 2020 final at Wembley if they make an appointment to receive their first dose of the Covid vaccine before Thursday. There will also be 50 pairs of tickets to the Trafalgar Square Fan Zone for those who have booked their first vaccination.

To put a name in the hat, Londoners can enter an online draw from Wednesday by providing proof of vaccination.

Londoners must provide proof they attended a walk-in vaccination centre and got their first jab, or booked an appointment.

By posting on social media about receiving the vaccine or booking an appointment, Londoners will increase their chances of winning the tickets – as this enters their name twice in the online draw.

More information about the online draw will be released on Mr Khan’s social media on Wednesday morning.

Mr Khan said it is important to encourage the younger generation to get vaccinated.

“It’s really important we continue to boost the number of young people coming forward to be vaccinated,” he said

“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.”

Wembley will host over 60,000 fans for the final, all of whom have to provide a negative Covid test or prove they are fully vaccinated and have received their second dose at least 14 days before the game.

The stadium is filled to 75 percent capacity and the remaining tickets went on sale last week.

The match will be the first major international football final to take place at Wembley for 25 years since the 1996 Euro final.

Millions of England fans will be watching the semi-final. It could lead to an historic win and land the Three Lions in their first major tournament final since 1966.

Matt Willis, of Football Supporters Europe, told Sky News: “Everybody wants to be part of this opportunity and this game. It’s really gripping the nation.”
