Romanian FA Submits Bid To Host Euro 2020 Match, Political Situation Could Be An Obstacle

The Romanian Football Federation (FRF) "has made the first steps in bidding to host a match at Euro 2020," but is concerned that the political situation in the country "could scupper their attempts once again," according to ISPORTCONNECT. The country is under a coalition government and the European Commission has previously expressed its concerns with Romania’s political set-up. FRF President & UEFA Exec Committee member Mircea Sandu confirmed that Romania "had started the bidding process for Euro 2020." Sandu said, "It will be a political decision, because [the government will be involved], the parliament and Bucharest's City, which have to ensure a big budget and also to approve laws in order for these biding requirements to be fulfilled. I hope that all the parties, especially the ruling party coalition, will understand the significance of such an event not only for Bucharest, but also for our whole country" (ISPORTCONNECT, 2/4).
