Euro 2020 to begin in Rome

Euro 2020 to begin in Rome

Each qualified host country will play a minimum of two games at home.

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 Eurostadium in Brussels was due to host four group matches and one Last 16 game, but it won't be ready in time so those matches have been reassigned to Wembley Stadium in London.

In a statement, FA chief executive Martin Glenn said: "We are delighted to help Uefa by hosting the additional four matches at Wembley Stadium".

Brussels was one of 13 venues picked to host this unique edition of the European Championship - to celebrate the 60th anniversary of UEFA - held across the continent rather than in a single host country. It was due to stage matches in the group stage and round of 16.

The Municipality Stadium in Cardiff was the venue for the 2017 Champions League final, where Real Madrid beat Juventus, while the Friends Arena in Stockholm held the Europa League final.

"We received a letter yesterday saying that there will be a final decision on January 31. If the answer had been no, it would have been a problem for us to find a new stadium".

In response to the decision, the Football Association of Wales (FAW) said they were "extremely disappointed" and have written to UEFA for an explanation. It's an honour to be one of the 12 nations that will play a part in this prestigious "EURO for Europe" tournament and I would like to thank the UEFA Executive Committee for giving us the opportunity to stage these games.

Rome and Baku will host Group A, Saint Petersburg and Copenhagen Group B, Amsterdam and Bucharest Group C, London and Glasgow Group D, Bilbao and Dublin Group E, with Munich and Budapest the Group F venues.

The first match of Euro 2020 will be hosted in Rome at the Stadio Olimpico, UEFA has confirmed.
