The UEFA press service, in response to a request Metaratings.ru, commented on the information of Le Parisien that Euro 2020 could be held in one country next summer, and Russia is the main contender for the event.
At the moment, there are no changes regarding what President Aleksander Čeferin spoke about in mid-October.
Now UEFA plans to hold Euro 2020 in exactly the format that was originally planned. We do not have a plan “B” at the moment. We are closely monitoring the situation and waiting.
However, despite this, we do not exclude the option in which Euro 2020 can be held not in 12 countries, but in 11. Or in eight, or in five, or even in one. President Čeferin has already said this earlier, – the UEFA press service said.
Initially the tournament was to be held in 12 cities of Europe, including in St. Petersburg.
In addition to St. Petersburg, Euro 2020 matches are planned to be held in London, Munchen, Baku, Rome, Bucharest, Dublin, Copenhagen, Bilbao, Glasgow, Budapest and Amsterdam.
However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the tournament was postponed to 2021. It is expected to be held from June 11 to July 11.
