Russia 'plan' denied
UEFA says no plans to change Euro 2020 format
UEFA said it has no plans to change the set-up of Euro 2020 amid reports it could scrap the format for next summer’s delayed multi-nation tournament and move it to Russia.
French newspaper Le Parisien reported earlier this week that installing Russia, which hosted the World Cup in 2018, as sole host for the finals was one option being considered by UEFA, with infection rates rising again across the continent.
The governing body for European football, insisted it will still be held across 12 stadiums in 12 nations from 11 June to 11 July.
In a statement it said: “UEFA intends to hold Euro 2020 in the format and the venues confirmed earlier this year and we are working closely with all host cities on preparations.”
The host cities are: Amsterdam, Baku, Bilbao, Bucharest, Budapest, Copenhagen, Dublin, Glasgow, London, Munich, Rome and St Petersburg. Both semi-finals and the final will be held at Wembley Stadium.
