England Set To Host Euro 2020 Final As FA, German FA Reach Wide-Ranging Deal

Officials in Germany said that the Euro 2020 semifinals and final are "set to be played at Wembley as part of a wide-ranging deal" between the English and German FAs, according to the London GUARDIAN. Euro 2020 is being staged in 13 different countries to "mark the 60th anniversary of the tournament, with only Wembley and Munich’s Allianz Arena putting in bids to host the final three games" ahead of the vote on Sept. 19. The deal, reported in the German media, would "entail Germany dropping their bid to stage the three 2020 matches in return for England backing Germany's campaign" to host the Euro 2024 tournament. Germany would "also support England's effort to host the tournament" in '28 (GUARDIAN, 9/3). In London, Oliver Kay wrote the FA "is confident" it will win the vote to host the finals and semi-finals. But the FA and UEFA say "there will be no deals of the type that the DFB implies." However, based on the FA's relationships with DFB and UEFA, and private conversations with Euro 2020 leave the organization "convinced that the Munich bid will be dropped just before the vote"  (LONDON TIMES, 9/4.)
