St. Petersburg Has Russian FA's Support In Bid To Host Euro 2020, FFF Backs Lyon
Published September 13, 2013
AZERBAIJAN JOINS RACE: INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL's Paul Nicholson reported Azerbaijan has added its name to the list of European nations bidding to host Euro 2020 matches, "putting forward Baku and the new Olympic stadium currently under construction as their venue" (INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL, 9/12).
FFP BACKS LYON: The AFP reported the French Football Federation "has put forth Lyon as a candidate to host matches at Euro 2020." Taking into account the "58,000 capacity of Lyon's Grand Stade, which should be completed in time for the second half of the 2015-16 season, the stadium would only be able to bid for games in the early rounds" (AFP, 9/12).
