Euro 2020 semis, final to be played at Wembley Stadium

1 Comment

London is getting a major international final.

UEFA has announced that the final matches — semis and championship — of the European Championships in 2020 will be played at Wembley Stadium.

The tournament will be played in 13 different countries in the first cross-continental tournament, as Glasgow and Dublin have also earned the right to host matches in the last 16 and the group stage.

France will not get a game after hosting in 2016, while Portugal, Switzerland, Finland, Sweden and Norway were also denied.

The required capacity for the final was a minimum of 70,000 seats, which certainly helped England near the front of the pack.
