UEFA announces multiple venues for the 2020 Euros
UEFA has announced that the Euro 2020 competition will be held across various venues across Europe, according to a decision reached at a meeting today by European football’s governing body.
With the tournament set to expand from sixteen to twenty-four teams for the 2016 tournament, the top twelve teams from the qualified twenty-four will host the matches for the group stages and the round of sixteen, while the quarters would be played at neutral venues and the semifinals and finals at a selected thirteenth city.
The decision is expected to receive mixed reactions from the public, but UEFA has so far stated that this will only be a one-time thing.
The expected host cities are Berlin, Madrid, Lisbon, Rome, London, Amsterdam, Moscow, Zagreb, Athens, Stockholm, Paris and Prague.
