Committee chairman Ernie Walker gave his verdict on how each stadium was progressing. Speaking in Leiria, he said: "Today, we saw significant changes and important improvements in this new stadium."
He added: "Coimbra is one of the most advanced projects. From the beginning this stadium did not give us any worries and we think the venue will be ready before the deadline." Finally, at at the Bessa stadium, he said: "It is not ready yet but everything seems ok."
