UEFA is considering moving all Euro 2020 games to the UK. – originally published on Sportslens.com to host the 2020 European Championship in Great Britain.

On the 60th anniversary of the first European championship, Euro 2020 was to be held in 12 different cities across the continent. After the first postponement to 2021, there is now the possibility that the tournament will be played in a single country in order to offer fans a safe environment to participate in games.

There have already been eleven games in Great Britain, four of them at Hampden Park in Glasgow and seven at Wembley Stadium in London, including both the semi-finals and the Final.

UEFA's current plan remains to have tournaments across Europe and a decision is expected within the next two months. A UEFA spokesman said: “UEFA's efforts are focused on planning a tournament in all 12 original venues with fans.

“Decisions contrary to this plan could be made much earlier if necessary, but there are currently no plans to change each venue. “

Wembley has hosted some of the greatest football games.

If this succeeds, it will be the third tournament to be hosted by England – the other two are the 1966 World Cup and the 1996 Euro. In the first case, the three Lions won the tournament, while in the second they reached the semi-finals.

Meanwhile, The Daily Mail also stated that the FA are "increasingly confident" that fans will be allowed into stadiums for this summer tournament.

Since the beginning of March, there have been no more spectators on football fields in Great Britain. Fans should return in October, but a spike in COVID-19 cases has put that plan on hold.
