Euro 2020 Final In London, Quarterfinals In Baku And St. Petersburg

  • RFE/RL

London's reconstructed Wembley Stadium will stage the final and both semifinals of the Euro 2020 soccer tournament.

UEFA's executive committee, meeting in Geneva on September 19, chose 12 other venues to stage matches at the Europe-wide tournament.

Baku, Azerbaijan, and St. Petersburg, Russia -- as well as Munich and Rome -- will each host a quarterfinal and three group matches.

Last-16 knockout games and group matches went to two cities in Eastern Europe -- Bucharest and Budapest -- and six in Western Europe -- Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Dublin, Bilbao, Brussels, and Glasgow.

Three other Eastern European capitals -- Minsk, Belarus; Sofia, Bulgaria; and Skopje, Macedonia -- were unsuccessful with their bids. So were Jerusalem, Stockholm, and Cardiff.

The tournament is usually hosted by one country or by tandems of countries.

The one-off Euro for Europe 2020 tournament will mark the 60th anniversary of the European Championships.
