“A detailed maintenance plan is in place to address specific issues and further improve quality ahead of the upcoming fixtures at the venue,” Uefa said.

“Uefa and its independent pitch consultants have been working closely with the grounds team in Frankfurt in the the build-up of the tournament to guarantee optimal playing conditions and have seen the overall pitch rating improve consistently over the course of the previous season.”

The next fixture to take place at the venue is on 23 June when hosts Germany take on Switzerland in Group A.

Slovakia and Romania meet in Group E on 26 June and the final game will be a last-16 tie between the Group F winner and one of the four best third-placed teams on 1 July.
