Uefa determined to host Euro 2020 in 12 countries despite Covid concerns


Uefa has stressed its commitment to hosting Euro 2020 across 12 host cities in 12 different countries this summer despite Covid-19 concerns.

The tournament was originally set to be held last summer but was delayed amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. It is now due to take place between 11 June and 11 July this year.

Plans for the competition to be staged across 12 cities in 12 different countries have come under threat, however, due to Covid-19 concerns.

But Uefa has now reaffirmed its intentions to go ahead with the hosting format.

In a statement released on Wednesday, European football’s governing body said: “Uefa officials today met representatives of the 12 host associations/organisers of Uefa Euro 2020, in a routine meeting to discuss operational matters relating to the tournament, which is to be staged in the summer. 

“Uefa repeated its commitment to holding the Euro across the 12 cities according to the timetable that has already been published.”
