The UEFA European Championship – Euro 2020
The 2018–20 UEFA European Football Championship, commonly referred to as 2020 UEFA European Championship, UEFA Euro 2020 or simply Euro 2020.
Euro 2020 is scheduled to be the 16th UEFA European Championship, the quadrennial international men’s football championship of Europe organised by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA).
The tournament, to be held in 11 cities in 11 UEFA countries, was originally scheduled from 12 June to 12 July 2020.
The tournament was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Europe and rescheduled for 11 June to 11 July 2021.
The competition was postponed to reduce pressure on the public services in affected countries and allow for the completion of domestic leagues that had been suspended.
The tournament will still retain the name “UEFA Euro 2020”.
60th Birth Day of European Competition Celebration
UEFA President Michel Platini said in 2012 that the tournament was to be hosted in several nations as a “romantic” one-off event to celebrate the 60th “birthday” of the European Championship competition.
Having the largest capacity of any of the stadiums entered for the competition, Wembley Stadium in London is scheduled to host the semi-finals and final for the second time, having done so before at the 1996 tournament in the stadium’s former incarnation.
The Stadio Olimpico in Rome was chosen to host the opening game, involving Turkey and hosts Italy. Originally to be played at 13 venues, two hosts were later removed.
Brussels in December 2017 due to delays with the building of the Eurostadium, and Dublin in April 2021 as there was no guarantee for spectators to attend.
Spain also changed their host city from Bilbao to Seville to allow an audience at matches.
Video Assistant Referee (VAR) to Used in Euro 2020
Portugal are the defending champions, having won the 2016 competition.
The video assistant referee (VAR) system will make its debut at the European Championship in this tournament.
