I missed out Munich, Baku, St Petersburg and Rome will each host three group-stage matches and a quarter-final.

So to confirm

Copenhagen, Bucharest, Amsterdam, Dublin, Glasgow, Bilbao, Budapest, Brussels, Munich, Baku, St Petersburg and Rome will each host three group-stage games.

Copenhagen, Bucharest, Amsterdam, Dublin, Glasgow, Bilbao, Budapest and Brussels will each host a last-16 tie

Munich, Baku, St Petersburg and Rome will each host a quarter-final.

London Wembley will host the Semi Finals and the Final

I presume each group will be hosted across two cities that are relatively close to each other? E.g. Glasgow and Dublin could host one group, with Scotland and Rep Ireland both in that group, should they qualify. Although I suppose UEFA may want to wait until after the qualifications are complete to try to ensure that each group has at least one host nation in it.

This really is such a shit idea.

Tournaments all have different memories and stories from them, and so much of that comes from where they were held. This will now just be a generic load of wank, no different to a Champions League competition.

I thought so initially. Now I wonder whether actually it may be great? Main issue for me is still the larger number of teams in the finals. Used to be a quality competition, far better than the WC.

Other reasons? It seems a god forsaken place with little infrastructure or football history.

I mean, plenty of natural resources, oil and stuff, so struggling to see what you mean.

Good that we've got these as it will show people how it's done.

However its difficult to get behind three games rather then a whole tournament. Euro 96 just about everyone got behind. Just the semis and a final in 2020? Not so sure.

Divide and rule by UEFA?

Seems like a great idea to me, it seems almost odd that UEFA would come up with it.

Same reasons Qatar and Russia got awarded World Cups. I've seen England play in Baku and that can only be the real reason

Supposedly the German FA pulled out last minute in agreement that England would back them for Euro 2024, and they would back England for Euro 2028.

That was mentioned a few weeks ago. Seems fair enough, as I'd certainly say the English and German FAs are certainly the two most dominant in UEFA right now.
