England To Host Euro 2020 Finals

Wembley will host the final and semi-finals of the 2020 European Championships, UEFA, Europe Football governing body, has announced.

Hampden Park in Glasgow and the Aviva Stadium in Dublin will host three group matches and a last-16 tie in the tournament, which for the first time is being played in cities across the continent rather than being hosted by one or two countries.

The Wembley games will be the first time England has hosted the finals of a major tournament since Euro 1996, when England reached the semi-final.

Wembley has been rebuilt since then and has become a favored venue for UEFA, staging the Champions League final twice in three seasons.

Michel Platini, UEFA president said, “I know the party side of London, the way the English welcome people. Wembley will doubtless live up to the responsibility.”
