Euro 2020 Final to be Held at Wembley Stadium
Last Friday Wembley was awarded the final and semi-finals of Euro 2020 in Geneva. Munich withdrew its bid at the last moment which made the choice of London and Wembley by UEFA’s executive committee unanimous.
This was the English Football Association’s first successful bid to host a major tournament since Euro 96 was awarded back in 1992. The tournament will be taking part across 13 cities including Brussels, Budapest, Bilbao, Amsterdam, Bucharest, Copenhagen, Glasgow, Dublin, St Petersburg, Rome, Munich and Baku.
In the last four years Wembley has hosted the UEFA Champions League final twice. UEFA favour it for large events due to its tier of 17,000 corporate seats.
In the meantime Euro 2016 matches are underway with the next due to take place in just over two weeks. England will be playing San Marino and with odds of 1/100 are widely expected to win.
However, overall it is Germany that is favourite to win the competition with odds of 3/1 followed by France and Spain at 9/2 and 6/1 respectively. England is seventh favourite to win with odds of 12/1. Nonetheless there are still 2 years until the finals and much could change in that time.
