Wembley given more Euro 2020 games

Wembley given more Euro 2020 games

Venue: Hampden will host four matches but not the opening game.

Belgium's capital city has been ruled out as a planned new stadium is still to be built and Uefa have not received the necessary guarantees.

WEMBLEY will host seven games at the Euro 2020 finals - including the final.

As well as deciding where the first game, on 12 June, will be and what to do about Brussels' difficulties, the executive committee also announced where each of the six groups' games will be played.

"Due to the Eurostadium project's failure to meet the conditions imposed by the UEFA Executive Committee during its meeting of 20 September 2017, the four matches (three group, one round of 16) initially scheduled to be held in Brussels will now be allocated to London's Wembley Stadium following a vote by the committee", said Ceferin.

Both Wales' Principality Stadium and Sweden's Stockholm Friend's Arena had been hoping to replace Brussels, but UEFA opted against the venues for last season's Champions League and Europa League finals.

"We discussed with Brussels for quite a long time, they were not able to provide us with all the documentation". "We absolutely need a new 45,000-seat stadium and we hope that the competent ministers will grant the permit in January so that a stadium for the 21st century can finally be built in our country".

The move was made as a response to the missile launch by North Korea into the Sea of Japan on 27th July. North Korea does not announce its tests beforehand unlike other countries.

"Experts from administration had the opinion it was a high risk for UEFA if we wait".

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

In response to the decision, the Football Association of Wales (FAW) said they were "extremely disappointed" and have written to UEFA for an explanation.

"The concept of Euro 2020 to 13 different countries was devised to allow smaller countries, like Wales, to have a unique opportunity of being involved in staging a major tournament", it said.

The other host cities that will hold three group games and a last 16 game are Copenhagen (Denmark), Bucharest (Romania), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Bilbao (Spain), Budapest (Hungary) and now London.

Each host nation that qualifies will be guaranteed two home matches in the group stage.
