Hampden loses out on hosting opening match of Euro 2020

Hampden loses out on hosting opening match of Euro 2020

Rome's Stadio Olimpico will host the opening game of Euro 2020, Wembley will stage three group matches, a round of 16 game plus the semi-finals and final, while the venue pairings have been confirmed, UEFA said.

Wembley Stadium was chosen in 2014 to host the semifinals and final. Wales has never staged a Euro or World Cup final and this was its one and only chance of doing so.

It said that Group A would be played in Rome and Baku, Group B in St Petersburg and Copenhagen, Group C in Amsterdam and Bucharest, Group D in London and Glasgow, Group E in Bilbao and Dublin and Group F in Munich and Budapest.

"The FAW complied with all of the bid requirements and has written to UEFA to request feedback on the decision so that it can understand the reasons behind the vote for future reference".

We know what you're thinking, 'we've only qualified for the Euros three times ('88, '12, '16)' but the new 24 team format means it's now easier for Ireland to get through the group stages as we found out in Euro 2016. "Today we don't know if they can build a stadium or not", he told reporters at UEFA headquarters in Nyon.

While the decision has come as a blow to the Welsh, and Belgians, it is a major coup for the Football Association, London and Wembley Stadium, which hosted several games in the 1996 tournament.

Possible elements of genocide in Myanmar
Mainly Buddhist Myanmar denies the Muslim Rohingya are its citizens and considers them foreigners. Ethnic cleansing is not recognised as an independent crime under worldwide law.

Brussels had been one of 13 venues picked to host this unique edition of the European Championship - to celebrate the tournament's 60th anniversary - held across the continent rather than in a single host country.

Here's where the group-stage matches will be played.

Host countries are guaranteed at least two home group stage matches if they qualify, meaning England and Scotland would be in the same group if they both reach the finals.

Glenn, who has previously pledged that the FA will sink millions into upgrading the national stadium before the tournament, paid tribute to Mayor of London Sadiq Khan for his support.

The FA and Khan added that they would now work on a programme of "community activity" around the month-long tournament, while sports minister Tracey Crouch said it was "great news".

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said the decision followed the Eurostadium project's failure to meet conditions imposed by European football's executive committee in September 2017.
