Wembley Stadium to host more games in Euro 2020

Wembley Stadium to host more games in Euro 2020

The decision means that Wembley will stage seven games in total - the final, both semi-finals, a last-16 match and three group games - resulting in the biggest festival of worldwide football in the country since Euro 96.

Belgium's capital city has been ruled out as a planned new stadium is still to be built and Uefa has not received the necessary guarantees.

Cardiff's Principality Stadium and Stockholm's Friends Arena - the venues for last season's finals of the Champions League and Europa League, respectively - had hoped to pick up Brussels' games.

Staged across 12 countries, Euro 2020's unusual format was former UEFA president Michel Platini's brainchild - a one-off gesture to celebrate the tournament's 60th birthday.

"We discussed with Brussels for quite a long time, they were not able to provide us with all the documentation".

Ceferin said that the development of the Eurostadium had run into delays involving the applications for construction and environmental permits.

Provided England qualify for the competition, which is being expanded from 16 teams to 24, they will play at least two of their group-stage fixtures at Wembley.

"Experts from administration had the opinion it was a high risk for UEFA if we wait".

"We are delighted to help Uefa by hosting the additional four matches at Wembley Stadium", said Football Association chief executive Martin Glenn. "If the answer had been no, it would have been a problem for us to find a new stadium".

UEFA also divided host cities into pairs, with each pair sharing matches in a given group.

UEFA has previously indicated that qualified nations that are home to one of the 12 host cities would be assigned to that group - meaning Spain and Ireland would be automatically paired up.

UEFA said Russian Federation and Ukraine would be kept apart in the group stage, as would Armenia and Azerbaijan.

The Olimpico will also host one of the Quarter-Finals.
