Wembley Stadium to host more games in Euro 2020

Wembley Stadium to host more games in Euro 2020”

UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin announced on Thursday that England's national stadium would now host the three group stage games and one knockout match slated for the proposed new "Eurostadium" in Belgium.

UEFA chose to reallocate the three group-stage games and one last-16 game originally given to the Belgian capital because of delays in the project to build a new 60,000-capacity Eurostadium on the site of Heysel.

Despite being in the running as alternative options, Cardiff's Principality Stadium and Stockholm's Friends Arena missed out on the chance to replace Brussels.

The 2020 tournament is being played in 12 cities across Europe, instead of one or two host nations, as a one-off to celebrate the tournament's 60th anniversary. This is in addition to the semifinals and final, which were already set for Wembley.

Stadio Olympico in Rome was picked as the opening match venue for the tournament. "Today we don't know if they can build a stadium or not", he told reporters at UEFA headquarters in Nyon.

The boost to England's credentials as a host of major tournament football comes after it emerged this week that chairman Greg Clarke has begun laying the groundwork for a potential bid for the 2030 World Cup.
