Euro 2020 could be hosted by all of Europe

MICHEL Platini has suggested that the entire Continent could share the burden of hosting the European Championships.
Although Turkey wants to take on the tournament in eight years’ time, the country is also hosting the Olympics that year, putting the plan in doubt.
But despite Scotland, Wales and Ireland declaring an interest, UEFA top brass Platini says a plan to have “12 or 13 cities” across different European countries hosting matches will be considered.
He said: “The Euros in 2020 could be held all over Europe.
“It could be either one country and 12 stadiums, or one stadium in 12 or 13 cities.
“This matter will be discussed very seriously.
“It is the political decision that needs to be made. We wouldn’t have to build stadiums or airports. That could be important in an economic crisis.”
