SFA Leadership Pushing for Scotland To Play Role As Host For Euro 2020
Scottish FA CEO Stewart Regan wants Scotland to "play a major part in the hosting of the Euro 2020 football championships," according to the Scotland DAILY RECORD. UEFA President Michel Platini has proposed a cross-Europe tournament for what will be the 60th anniversary of the championships and SFA chiefs "are to press the case for Glasgow to be one of those cities." The SFA is still keen on "hosting the tournament alongside Ireland and Wales," which has been proposed earlier. Regan and SFA President Campbell Ogilvie are attending a meeting of Europe's top football executives in Dublin at which the various options will be debated. Regan told the BBC: "Platini's proposal is for 13 cities as opposed to one or two countries, or three in the case of Scotland, Ireland and Wales, which was our suggestion earlier in the year. Irrespective of the outcome, there is a great opportunity for Scotland, either as the country as a whole or Glasgow putting its hat in the ring to be one of the host cities" (DAILY RECORD, 11/29).
