The European Football Championship has to pause in 2020. The reason: the corona pandemic. As far as we know, the next European Championship will take place in June 2021.
After the postponement of the European Football Championship due to the coronavirus pandemic, UEFA is examining the Euro 2021 Venues whether the tournament will take place in a dozen countries as planned in 2021.
“UEFA EURO 2020 is to take place between June 11 and July 11, 2021, to have the same game schedule and the same venues,” said UEFA at the request of the German Press Agency.
UEFA is in contact with all twelve host cities on this matter, the continental association said. Munich, Rome, Baku, St. Petersburg, Copenhagen, London, Glasgow, Amsterdam, Bucharest, Bilbao, Dublin, and Budapest are planned as hosts.
The teams play the games in 12 different stadiums. One of the Euro 2021 Venues: Baku, Azerbaijan, one will now ask: Well, isn’t that in Asia? Geographically correct, but the boundaries of UEFA are drawn differently than in politics. UEFA selected a total of twelve cities for Euro 2021. The European Championship final will be played in London. The new EM date will not change anything at the planned venues.
