The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson has said he is ready to provide British stadiums to host the entire Euro 2021 scheduled for the trip. In an interview with The Sun this Tuesday, Johnson also confirmed that England want to host the 2030 World Cup with Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Ireland.
Commenting on the European Championship, Johnson recalled that London “already hosts the semi-finals and finals and they are ready if we want to host more matches”. The EuroCup, scheduled for 2020, has been postponed by one year due to a corona virus infection. It is scheduled to take place in 12 host cities from June 11 to July 11.
Matches already planned in London and Glasgow
These cities include Glasgow, which hosts 3 group stage matches and 16 round knockout rounds, and London, where there are three group stage matches, one round of 16, the semifinals and the final (at Stadium Wembley).
Euro’s medical adviser Daniel Koch told Reuters last week that the European Football Association’s governing body would make a decision on Euro Cup venues and planned capabilities in early April, and that Johnson would be ready to take part in more matches if asked. It should be noted that this country plans to repeal all restrictions on social interaction on June 21st.
Bilbao, locations for Euro 2021
Other host cities for Euro 2021 (including London and Glasgow) are Dublin, Bilbao, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Munich, Rome, St. Petersburg, Bucharest, Budapest and Baku.
At the 2030 World Cup, Boris Johnson said: “We are very excited to bring football home in 2030. I think this is the right place. This is the homeland of football, the time is right. It will be an absolutely wonderful one for the country. “Foreign Minister Rishi Sunak in his budget on Tuesday will offer the opportunity to host the 2030 World Cup for 20 3.2 million, with an additional 28.9 million for grassroots football, according to media reports.
“The hosting of the FIFA World Cup will provide our countries with an incredible opportunity to create tangible benefits,” he said. In 1966, England hosted the World Cup only once, when their team was declared World Champion at the same time.
