Bayern Munich, City Launch Joint Bid To Stage Euro 2020 Games At Allianz Arena

Bundesliga club Bayern Munich and the city of Munich "launched a joint bid on Thursday to host Euro 2020" matches at the club's Allianz Arena, according to Karolos Grohmann of REUTERS. Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said, "We have shown by hosting the 2012 Champions League final that we are in a position to be [a] good and nice host. The stadium is known around Europe." UEFA said last month that Euro 2020 "will be held in 13 cities across the continent" and the semifinals and final "will be played in the same stadium." One city per country "will be picked for the matches, with the capital Berlin also considered a possible candidate for games during Euro 2020." Munich "has hosted several other major events in the past" including the 1972 Summer Olympics, matches -- including the final -- for the 1974 World Cup and the 2006 World Cup (REUTERS, 2/21).
