Soccer-Brussels loses right to host Euro 2020 matches, Wembley gains four games

Tottenham's players celebrated a goal against APOEL during the Champions League Group H soccer match between Tottenham and APOEL Nicosia in London Wednesday Dec. 6 2017

Brussels has lost the right to stage matches at Euro 2020 following delays in the development of a new stadium, UEFA said on Thursday.

"Today's host city pairings marks an exciting chapter in the build-up to the European Championships, which will see Dublin and Ireland hosting the biggest ever sporting event to take place in our country", said FAI CEO John Delaney.

The governing body made a decision to reallocate the three group-stage games and one last-16 game originally given to the Belgian capital because of delays in the project to build a new 60,000-capacity Eurostadium on the site of Heysel.

We know what you're thinking, 'we've only qualified for the Euros three times ('88, '12, '16)' but the new 24 team format means it's now easier for Ireland to get through the group stages as we found out in Euro 2016.

Cardiff's Principality Stadium and Stockholm's Friends Arena - the venues for last season's finals of the Champions League and Europa League, respectively - had hoped to pick up Brussels' games. Bilbao and Dublin were paired together.in Group E.

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the tournament, Euro 2020 is to be played in 12 cities across Europe, with cities divided into pairs and each pair sharing matches in a particular group.

Glenn, who has previously pledged that the FA will sink millions into upgrading the national stadium before the tournament, paid tribute to Mayor of London Sadiq Khan for his support.

But the exclusion of Brussels means the 90,000-seater venue will also get group games and a match in the first knockout round.

In addition to the host-city pairs, UEFA also announced that the opening match of the tournament will be played at Rome's Stadio Olimpico.

In a statement, the Football Association of Wales said it was "extremely disappointed" with the news its bid for four Euro 2020 games had been unsuccessful.
