Wembley to host more Euro 2020 games, replacing Brussels

Wembley to host more Euro 2020 games, replacing Brussels

Brussels has lost the right to stage Euro 2020 matches following delays in the development of its new Eurostadium and the four games it was due host will go to London's Wembley instead, UEFA said on Thursday.

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

The Eurostadium in Brussels was also in contention but will no longer take part in hosting due to delays to the new purpose-built stadium.

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.

"We received a letter yesterday that 31st of January there will be a final decision but the decision - yes or no - they don't know".

"Experts from (our) administration felt it was a high risk for UEFA to wait".

"If the answer would be no, it would be a problem for us to find a host quickly".

"We did everything we could until the last moment to make Uefa hold off, but we respect the decision", Koen De Brabander, chief executive of the Belgian Football Association, said in a statement.

UEFA's Executive Committee also confirmed which cities would host matches in each of the six groups at the 24-team tournament.

The 2020 tournament is the first to be played under a new format with group games spread across several countries.

"Wales has never staged a Euro or World Cup Final and this was its one and only chance of doing so".

Should the Republic of Ireland qualify for Euro 2020, they will play one of their group games in Bilbao.

Group B will be contested at the Johann Cryuff Arena in Amsterdam and the Arena Națională in Bucharest.

Group F's games will be played at the Allianz Arena in Munich and Budapest's renovated Ferenc Puskás Stadium.
