Wembley

Brussels has lost the right to stage Euro 2020 matches following delays in the development of its new Eurostadium with the four games it was due to host going to London's Wembley instead.

UEFA made a decision to reallocate the three group-stage games and one round-of-16 game originally given to the Belgian capital because of delays in the project to build a new 60,000-capacity Eurostadium on the site of Heysel.

UEFA also had an interesting note, stating that each qualified host country will play a minimum of two matches at home in the group-stage.

Despite being in the running as alternative options, Cardiff's Principality Stadium and Stockholm's Friends Arena missed out on the chance to replace Brussels.

The Republic of Ireland and Spain will face off in the group stages of Euro 2020 should both teams qualify after Dublin and Bilbao were paired up as hosts of Group E for the cross-continental finals.

"Experts from administration had the opinion it was a high risk for UEFA if we wait".




Koen De Brabander, chief executive of the Belgian Football Association, said in a statement that they did everything they could to make UEFA hold off.

The company contracted to build the stadium in the northern suburb of Grimbergen, BTP Ghelamco, said they were able to build the 60,000-capacity Eurostadium in 18 months, but the Flanders region in which it will be situated has yet to issue a building permit.

However they said UEFA's decision "does not necessarily signify the end of the stadium project".

A refurbished Heysel, called the King Baudouin Stadium, staged matches at Euro 2000, which Belgium co-hosted with the Netherlands.

As well as deciding where the first game, on June 12, will be and what to do about Brussel's difficulties, the executive committee also announced where each of the six groups' games will be played.
