FA to nominate Wembley Stadium for European Championship final

THE Football Association is to nominate Wembley Stadium to host the final of the 2020 European Championships to European football’s governing body Uefa. Michel Platini, the Uefa president, is considering a change in format which would mean the tournament is played across several European cities instead of the traditional one or two host countries. Wembley’s chances of hosting the showpiece are linked to Turkey’s bid to host the tournament. The country has also bid for the 2020 Olympics so, should it be successful in that particular pursuit, it will not be considered for Euro 2020. Regardless, the FA remain keen to avoid an expensive bid campaign, like that for the 2018 World Cup.
