Brussels loses #Euro2020 matches to Wembley

Up to 90,000 supporters will be able to watch each Euro 2020 match at the national stadium

Due to the Eurostadium project's failure to meet the conditions imposed by the UEFA Executive Committee during its meeting of September 20, 2017, the four matches (three group, one round of 16) initially scheduled to be held in Brussels will now be allocated to London's Wembley Stadium following a vote by the committee.

The Eurostadium in Brussels was due to host four group matches and one Last 16 game, but it won't be ready in time so those matches have been reassigned to Wembley Stadium in London.

"We received a letter yesterday that 31st of January there will be a final decision but the decision - yes or no - they don't know".

"It's a high risk for UEFA if we wait".

Sweden's capital Stockholm and Welsh city Cardiff - both of which staged major European finals this year - had expressed an interesting in replacing Brussels as a host city.

The Glasgow ground is already guaranteed to have three games from the group stages and one from the round of 16. "If the answer had been no, it would have been a problem for us to find a new stadium".

"We did everything we could until the last moment to make Uefa hold off, but we respect the decision", Koen De Brabander, chief executive of the Belgian Football Association, said in a statement. It's an honour to be one of the 12 nations that will play a part in this prestigious "EURO for Europe" tournament and I would like to thank the UEFA Executive Committee for giving us the opportunity to stage these games.

A draw was also held to decide which cities would host games from the various groups.

UEFA's Executive Committee also confirmed which cities would host matches in each of the six groups at the 24-team tournament.

Matches in Group C are scheduled to be held at the Krestovsky Stadium in Saint Petersburg, a venue for the 2018 World Cup, and the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen.

Bilbao and Dublin were paired together.in Group E.
