Wembley to host 7 matches of UEFA Euro 2020 matches

Wembley to host 7 matches of UEFA Euro 2020 matches

Wembley will host seven games at Euro 2020 after Brussels lost the right to host matches for the tournament.

UEFA are marking the 60th anniversary of the tournament by hosting it in a shitload of cities hence why matches at the Aviva could be on the cards.

Belgium's capital city has been ruled out as a planned new stadium is still to be built and Uefa has not received the necessary guarantees.

Qualified host nations are guaranteed two games at home.

Despite being in the running as alternative options, Cardiff's Principality Stadium and Stockholm's Friends Arena missed out on the chance to replace Brussels.

However, UEFA opted for Wembley, which has already been chosen as the venue for the semi-finals and final.

Stadio Olympico in Rome was picked as the opening match venue for the tournament.

Here's where the group-stage matches will be played.

Euro 2020 will be the first football championship in a format when group matches are spread among different countries.

"This has been a collective and collaborative process and we could not have done it without the support of the Government and the Mayor of London".

Baku and Rome will host group A, group B's games will take place in Copenhagen and St Petersburg, Amsterdam and Bucharest get group C, Glasgow and London will share group D, group E will be staged in Bilbao and Dublin, while group F's fixtures will be in Budapest and Munich.

Koen De Brabander, chief executive of the Belgian Football Association, said in a statement that they did everything they could to make UEFA hold off.

Well if and WHEN we qualify for the next major tournament, it looks as though the green faithful won't have to travel to far in order to see the Boys in Green play.
