England Or Germany To Host Euro 2020 Final

London’s Wembley Stadium or Munich’s Allianz Arena to host the three biggest games of the 2020 European Championship.

Uefa have announced that the final and both semi-finals of Euro 2012 will be held in either England or Germany.

The hosting of the 2020 European Championship, the 16th staging of the international competition, will be shared between 13 different countries.

A total of 19 nations submitted bids to Uefa, but England and Germany were the only applicants for the ‘finals package’.

England’s proposed venue is Wembley Stadium, while Germany are putting forward Bayern Munich’s 69,901-capacity Allianz Arena.

The decision on which stadium will host the three games will be made on September 19.

Glasgow, Wales and Dublin have bid for group and early knock-out games, as have Baku, Minsk, Brussels, Sofia, Copenhagen, Skopje, Budapest, Jerusalem, Rome, Amsterdam, Bucharest, Saint Petersburg, Bilbao and Stockholm.

A major international football tournament has not been held in the United Kingdom or Ireland since Euro 96, which featured games in London, Nottingham, Liverpool, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield and Newcastle.

However, the FA will be hoping that London’s highly-successful staging of the 2012 Olympic Games will convince Uefa that the city is well equipped to rise to the challenge of giving Euro 2020 a fitting finale.
