Executive committee says there will be 13 host cities.
The governing body of European football have announced that there will be 13 host cities at the European Championship in 2020.
“The matches of the Euro (2020) will be split into 13 packages, basically, 12 cities who would include three group matches and one knockout round – eight final or quarter-final – and one city which would host the semi-finals and the final, the two semi-finals and the final,” said Uefa Secretary General Gianni Infantino.
“There will be only one venue per country, meaning that one stadium for each of the available 13 packages can be proposed by the member associations. This means also that both semi-finals and the final will be played in the same stadium.”

Meanwhile, Uefa President Michel Platini said: “My vote is for Turkey, if they are candidates, and if they do not have the Olympics Games. If they receive them, this is absolutely out of question that Turkey, Istanbul, receives the Euro, even a match of the Euro.”
