IT’S coming home in 2020 – sort of.
Wembley Stadium will host the final of the European Championships next year and Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions are dreaming once again of a first international title since 1966.
When is Euro 2020?
THE competition will kick-off on Friday June 12, 2020.
Rome’s Stadio Olimpico will stage the opening match, with this tournament the first Euros not to have a single host country.
The round of 16 will begin on June 27, with the quarter-finals a week later on July 3.
And after the semi-finals at Wembley on July 6 and 7, the winners will be crowned at the Home of Football on Sunday, July 12.
The group stages will be held in various European cities, as follows –
- Group A: Rome and Baku
- Group B: Saint Petersburg and Copenhagen
- Group C: Amsterdam and Bucharest
- Group D: London and Glasgow
- Group E: Bilbao and Dublin
- Group F: Munich and Budapest
Are BBC or ITV showing live matches?
THE COUNTRY rarely comes together as much as it does during a major international competition.
And you’ll be delighted to know that every minute of Euro 2020 will be broadcast on free-to-air TV in the UK.
The BBC and ITV will share coverage over the month, with England games (should they make the finals) decided once the draw is made.
