Euro 2020 - to be held in cities across Europe


Recommended Posts

They should do this with the world cup! Games on all seven continents!

 

:suicide:

 

 

 

 

Sounds to me like the UEFA heads had a sudden realization: "wait a minute, instead of taking bribes from ONE country, we could take bribes from ALL the countries!!"

Euro 2020 news: planners set to decree 13 host cities must each be served by two airports. Means Cardiff will struggle...

Dublin, Glasgow and London Euro 2020 bids unaffected by airports issue. London, Istanbul, Madrid, Rome, Berlin likely to tussle for final.

That's shameful, plenty of major cities only have 1 airport, and plenty of others only have 1 international and smaller regional airports.

 

I was hoping we would put a bid in even if it was for a group game between San Marino and Andorra.

 

That rule though is preventing cities that could host a game but not a tournament from bidding.

Both Madrid and Barcelona only have one airport serving them, besides some regional ones that are a bit afar from the cities themselves, this is ridiculous :lol:

why do UEFA want to ruin their own tournement, bad enough they increased the size of it which is going to reduce the quality but this shit about all over europe without consideration as to the cost of supporters following their team, then again fuck those peasants we bigwigs want to party in every major european capital! sigh

Nice if Glasgow got it. Two airports (Edinburgh only an hour away too) and two huge stadiums. Always do well with getting big sporting events (not least commonwealth games next year) and it's all been funding some mega-development. Also won't need to go to Ireland since we're the same but with less alcoholics, criminals and Irish people.

Euro 2020 - Report: Brazil could play in European Championship

 

UEFA president Michel Platini wants to invite non-European teams to compete in the European Championship in the future, a report claims.

The Independent on Sunday reports that sides like Brazil, Argentina, Mexico and Japan could be invited to the tournament as early as 2020.

The tournament increases to 24 teams in 2016 but by inviting non-Europeans, UEFA believe they can make the competition a genuine rival to the World Cup.

The Independent's report says that the plans are still being finalised, let alone approved, but they quote a senior adviser to Platini as saying: "The ideas are at an early stage but they are very feasible. The South Americans have been doing it for decades, inviting teams from outside their continent to take part in the Copa America. So why cannot Europe?”

Since 1993, the Copa America have invited countries from outside of South America into the competition.

Mexico and Japan have both been invited to compete in the next edition in Chile in 2015.

The report says that the idea is "another sign of the growing rift between Platini and FIFA's president, Sepp Blatter."

Platini's adviser says: "Many in FIFA are talking of cutting back Europe’s power, reducing the number of European teams in the World Cup (currently 13 out of 32 in 2014) and also our representation on the FIFA executive (eight out of 24).”

Platini has already got the go ahead for a radical new idea for the 2020 European Championship which will be hosted in 13 cities around the continent as opposed to all being hosted in one or two countries.

32 countries have since declared an interest in hosting matches in that tournament.

World cup every two years now, it is.
