Glasgow's Bid For Euro 2020 Matches To Take 'Major Step' Forward This Week
Glasgow’s bid to become a Euro 2020 host city will take a "major step forward" this week when the Scottish FA makes its pitch to UEFA for a package of games, according to Andrew Smith of the SCOTSMAN. If successful, Glasgow would "stage a group section or matches in the knockout stage." For the first time in its history, UEFA has opted to spread the Euro finals across up to 13 cities. Glasgow boasts three stadiums with capacities of 50,000 or more and is in a "strong position to be a venue for one of the groups, a selection of the eight second round matches, and/or one or two quarterfinals." An announcement on Glasgow's bid will be made in May (SCOTSMAN, 1/13).
