UEFA Euro 2020 is the 16th championship scheduled to kick off on June 12, 2020, and end on July 12, 2020.
So, what’s new with this year’s Euro 2020?
Unlike the previous years, when the competition was held in one country or at times shared between two countries at most, we expect Euro 2020 to be hosted in 12 different countries’ cities.
UEFA argued that the move was to symbolize their 60th anniversary since the inauguration of UEFA EURO.
With that said, let’s look at the host countries and the matches to expect.
