Brussels Loses Euro 2020 Matches To Wembley

Share

Rome's Stadio Olimpico will host the opening game of Euro 2020, Wembley will stage three group matches, a round of 16 game plus the semi-finals and final, while the venue pairings have been confirmed, UEFA said.

The European football governing body's executive committee decided "unanimously" to strip Brussels of its four matches due to the inability of Belgian organisers to guarantee the new stadium to the north of the capital where they would have been held could be built in time.

England has been handed an even more prominent role in hosting the 2020 European Championship after a further four matches were allocated to Wembley Stadium.

Ceferin said that the development of the Eurostadium had run into delays involving the applications for construction and environmental permits.

Brussels was one of 13 cities around Europe chosen to host the tournament.

A draw was also held to decide which cities would host games from the various groups.

The British Isles will host a total of 15 of the 51 matches at Euro 2020, with Hampden Park in Glasgow and Dublin's Aviva Stadium each set to stage three group matches and a last-16 tie.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said the decision followed the Eurostadium project's failure to meet the conditions imposed by the UEFA executive committee in September 2017.

UEFA also divided host cities into pairs, with each pair sharing matches in a given group.

Baku and Rome will host group A, group B's games will take place in Copenhagen and St Petersburg, Amsterdam and Bucharest get group C, Glasgow and London will share group D, group E will be staged in Bilbao and Dublin, while group F's fixtures will be in Budapest and Munich.
