Wembley to host more Euro 2020 games
NYON, SWITZERLAND — Brussels has lost its 2020 European Championship games to London, with Wembley Stadium picked by UEFA on Thursday to stage an additional four games on top of the semifinals and final.
Brussels has been dropped because of delays starting to build the Eurostadium project, leaving 12 countries hosting the continent-wide tournament.
English soccer’s national stadium, which was chosen in 2014 to host the final three games, now also has three group stage games and a round of 16 fixture.
Each host country that qualifies will play at least two games at home in the group stage. UEFA announced Thursday which cities would be paired together for each of six groups: — Group A: Rome, Baku — Group B: Saint Petersburg, Copenhagen — Group C: Amsterdam, Bucharest — Group D: London, Glasgow — Group E: Bilbao, Dublin — Group F: Munich, Budapest
