Euro 2016 games in France cancelled because of terror attacks or threats could be staged the next day and behind closed doors, Europe's ruling body UEFA said Tuesday.
UEFA confirmed to dpa a report of Germany's Sport Bild weekly which quoted tournament director Martin Kallen as saying the closed-door scenario would be used for logistical reasons "if we have to move a game to another city."
Kallen named this one of various options but not necessarily the measure to be taken if worse comes to worst. He said that "safety and staging the tournament takes priority over everything else."
French authorities and UEFA are looking into every possible security scenario for the June 10-July 10 tournament after the attacks in Paris on November 13, with three suicide bombers blowing themselves up outside the Stade de France while France were playing a friendly against Germany.
The arena in St Denis just outside Paris will see among other games the Euro opener between France and Romania, and the final.
