EM 2020: all you need to know

ByJulio Ventura 2019-06-15 428

In 2020, the euro will take place for the first time in more than two countries. The semi-finals and final will take place in London's Wembley Stadium.

Romantic! This is what the deposed Uefa President Michel Platini called the idea that a European Championship takes place all over Europe. In 2020, the pan-European games are a reality - for the 60th anniversary of the European Championship.

But where does EM 2020 actually take place?

Again there are 24 teams at the start. The teams will play in 12 countries, from Ireland to Azerbaijan (see map). All venues will receive three preliminary round matches. The quarter-finals will be played in Copenhagen, Bucharest, Amsterdam, London, Dublin, Bilbao, Budapest and Glasgow, the quarter-finals in Munich, Rome and St Petersburg.

Semifinals and finals in London

The semi-finals and final will take place at Wembley Stadium in London. By the way, the Swiss Football Association withdrew its candidacy (Basel). 12 countries - an imposition on fans who have to commute all the time? No, Platini said. "After all, there are cheap airlines.

Is it an imposition?

Advantages? It is played almost exclusively in existing stadiums. "Then you don't need to create any infrastructure. You reduce the costs of a European Championship to a bearable level," says Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, head of FC Bayern and the European club association.

Only Baku, Budapest, Brussels and Bucharest are being built. And, Rummenigge says: "It would be a sign that we are now a united Europe." How romantic!

What are the disadvantages of such a tournament?

It will be expensive for the fans. It has to travel far. The tournament becomes homeless and soulless.
