Wembley Stadium to host three Euro 2020 group games and one last-16 match on top of semi-finals and final
07 December, 2017, 22:28
The Eurostadium in Brussels was due to host four group matches and one Last 16 game, but it won't be ready in time so those matches have been reassigned to Wembley Stadium in London.
UEFA made a decision to reallocate the three group-stage games and one last-16 game originally given to the Belgian capital because of delays in the project to build a new 60,000-capacity Eurostadium on the site of Heysel.
Wembley was already scheduled to hold the semi-finals and final but will now also host three group games and a last 16 tie.
Should the Republic of Ireland qualify for Euro 2020, they will play one of their group games in Bilbao. "Today we don't know if they can build a stadium or not", he told reporters at UEFA headquarters in Nyon.
The building of a new Brussels stadium for the tournament had run into delays involving the applications for construction and environmental permits.
However they said UEFA's decision "does not necessarily signify the end of the stadium project".
"A huge amount of work has gone into preparation for the tournament and we are making enormous progress in preparing the Aviva Stadium for when it becomes a focus for worldwide attention during this prestigious competition".
Khan said: "It speaks volumes about our great city that London has been awarded an additional four Euro 2020 matches, reinforcing the capital's reputation as the sporting capital of the world".
UEFA has previously indicated that qualified nations that are home to one of the 12 host cities would be assigned to that group - meaning Spain and Ireland would be automatically paired up.
The draw will take place on January 24.
As well as deciding where the first game, on June 12, will be and what to do about Brussel's difficulties, the executive committee also announced where each of the six groups' games will be played.
