Amsterdam to host UEFA EURO 2020

Today in Geneva, the UEFA Executive Committee selected the thirteen host cities that will stage matches at UEFA EURO 2020, when the competition will celebrate its 60th anniversary in six years’ time.

The semi-finals and finals of UEFA EURO 2020 will be hosted at Wembley Stadium in London, England.

Three group matches and a quarter-final each will be staged in Azerbaijan/Baku, Germany/Munich, Italy/Rome, Russia/St. Petersburg.

Three group matches and a round of 16 match each will be played in Belgium/Brussels, Denmark/Copenhagen, Hungary/Budapest, Netherlands/Amsterdam, Republic of Ireland/Dublin, Romania/Bucharest, Scotland/Glasgow and Spain/Bilbao.

Commenting on the bidding process UEFA President Michel Platini said:

“I would like to thank all bidders for their efforts and dedication in submitting their candidature.

“UEFA EURO 2020 will be an historic occasion, with matches of our flagship national team competition taking place in every corner of our continent.

“It is truly, therefore, a EURO for Europe, where fans will have the unique opportunity to be part of the UEFA European Football Championship right on their doorstep.”

The voting process was split into four separate phases, starting with the selection of the association hosting the semi-finals and final. The selection of London’s Wembley Stadium was made by acclamation after Munich had withdrawn its candidature prior to the vote.
