Trip to Bilbao on the agenda if Ireland reach Euro 2020

Wembley

Brussels has lost the right to stage matches at Euro 2020 following delays in the development of a new stadium, Uefa said on Thursday (Dec 7).

The 2020 tournament is being played in 12 cities across Europe, instead of there being one or two host nations, as a one-off to celebrate the tournament's 60th anniversary.

Cardiff's Principality Stadium and Stockholm's Friends Arena - the venues for last season's finals of the Champions League and Europa League, respectively - had hoped to pick up Brussels' games.

Wembley Stadium was chosen in 2014 to host the semifinals and final.

The other host cities for Euro 2020 are: Baku, Copenhagen, Munich, Budapest, Rome, Amsterdam, Bucharest and Bilbao.

But the exclusion of Brussels means the 90,000-seater venue will also get group games and a match in the first knockout round.

"Due to the Eurostadium project's failure to meet the conditions imposed by the UEFA Executive Committee during its meeting of 20 September 2017, the four matches (three group, one round of 16) initially scheduled to be held in Brussels will now be allocated to London's Wembley Stadium following a vote by the committee", said Ceferin. The concept of taking Euro 2020 to 13 different countries was devised to allow smaller countries, like Wales, to have a unique opportunity of being involved in staging a major tournament.

Provided England qualify for the competition, which is being expanded from 16 teams to 24, they will play at least two of their group-stage fixtures at Wembley.

Glenn also thanked the government and mayor of London for their help in securing the games, which will be staged in a post-Brexit Britain.

Marking the 60th anniversary of the tournament, UEFA made a decision to take the European Championships on the road in 2020.

Khan said: "It speaks volumes about our great city that London has been awarded an additional four Euro 2020 matches, reinforcing the capital's reputation as the sporting capital of the world".
