Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on standby as a potential venue for UEFA Euro 2020
According to the Mirror, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is one among ten arenas that are on the standby list as a potential venue for the upcoming UEFA Euro 2020 later this summer.
The UEFA Euro 2020 was scheduled to take place last year but had to be postponed to the summer of 2021 owing to the pandemic. As things stand, the tournament is set to be played across 12 countries. However, there are doubts over such an arrangement and the viability of it given the circumstances.
Amidst the situation, the UK has opened the doors to host more matches. Currently, the Wembley Stadium is set to provide the setting for seven games, that includes England’s three group stage matches, one Round of 16 clash, along with both the semi-finals as well as the finals.
However, with the UK’s vaccine rollout putting them ahead of the fellow host nations, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has opened the doors for more matches to take place in the country, or even host the entire competition outright.
And, if England were to host the UEFA Euro 2020, ten stadiums have been listed as potential venues for the summer extravaganza, with the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium being one among them.
The other stadiums that are being considered are Old Trafford, Villa Park, St. James’ Park, the Etihad Stadium, the Stadium of Light, Anfield, along with the London Stadium as well as the Emirates Stadium.
