Euro 2020 - to be held in cities across Europe


Recommended Posts

UEFA have decided that Euro 2020 will take place across the continent in 13 host cities. Thoughts?

 

Uefa will stage the Euro 2020 tournament in a number of cities across the continent, the European governing body decided on Thursday.

 

The decision was taken by Uefa's executive committee at a meeting in Lausanne.

 

It means there will be no one country hosting the tournament. The Football Association has already put forward Wembley to Uefa as a possible venue for the final.

 

Seems to be this will be a one off and it'll revert to type after.

Can see good and bad about this. It'll get to be in places that wouldn't normally get the Euros (Dublin for example) but the cost to travelling fans would be immense! Does this mean there will be no countries that automatically qualify as there will be no host country?

as i said in nwoat its moronic, screws the fans screws the players screws everyone except Platini and his mates who get to look very important and oh look at us holding our tournament across the continent bet you can't do that CONMEBOL.

 

Seriously they could hold it in London Paris Rome Istanbul and Moscow just think of the ridiculous travel time to get to games

In terms of distance, etc. is it any different to the World Cup being held in USA again?

 

As someone else said, it gives cities such as Dublin, Cardiff, etc. a chance to host these things.

 

Moscow to Madrid - 2,500 miles

Stockholm to Lisbon -2,245 miles

NYC to LA - 2,790 miles

You'd hope there's be some sort of regionalisation still mind (ie, one country having group games in Rome, Paris, Madrid).

given how I fully expect an airline to become a sponser for this one not a hope it will be scattered from one end of the continent to the other
