England Euro 2020 Bid Could Go Unchallenged As Doubts Emerge Over Munich Bid

England's bid to host the semifinals and final of Euro 2020 at Wembley "may be completely unchallenged at next month's vote with Germany FA chiefs considering dropping Munich's rival bid," according to SKY SPORTS. Germany wants to stage Euro 2024 and the German Football Federation (DFB) "may now only bid for Munich to host group games at Euro 2020 so as not to harm its campaign for the tournament four years later." UEFA "is holding Euro 2020 in 13 different countries to mark the 60th anniversary of the tournament" and only Wembley and Munich's Allianz Arena have put in bids to host the semifinals and final. DFB President Wolfgang Niersbach said that a decision on whether to press ahead with a bid for the final remains "open" -- but made it clear that both the DFB and the FA would "work together to support each other" (SKY SPORTS, 8/6).
