San Mames gets Euro 2020 nod; final to take place at Wembley
And then, finally, the last four and the final will all be staged in England’s capital city. Four more, which include Munich and Rome, will also host three group games, but will then be the venues for the four quarter-finals of the tournament, rather than the last 16. “We’re delighted it’s nice to win one,” said the English FA chairman Greg Dyke. London’s Wembley Stadium has been chosen as the venue for both semi-finals and the final. The normal custom is for one country to be handed the whole tournament, but UEFA announced in January 2013 that, in a change of direction and tradition, 13 cities across Europe would be given the chance to house matches.
