Euro 2020 will be an interesting tournament as it's set to take place around a number of different countries, and Ireland were in the running to get a few games.
There were 19 cities in the running for 13 venues that will host the games in Euro 2020, a tournamnet which promises to be one of a kind given that it will take place across the continent in a selection of different countries. Among those who applied were ourselves here in Ireland as well as Scotland and England.
In an exciting bit of news, it seems that the application put forward by the FAI was fairly decent, as Dublin was chosen to host three group games and one game from the round of 16 along with Copenhagen, Bucharest, Amsterdam, Bilbao, Budapest, Brussels and Glasgow.
Baku, Munich, Rome and Saint Petersburg were chosen as the venues for the quarter-finals and three group games, while the final and semi-final will be held in Wembley, perhaps one of the most impressive stadiums in Europe.
This is definitely an experimental way to go about hosting the Euros, and the impact on attendances and fans travelling around remains to be seen, but it seems an exciting prospect so far now that Ireland is going to be involved.
