Coronavirus: Original 12 Euro 2020 venues confirmed for rescheduled tournament

All 12 host cities for Euro 2020 will remain the same if the tournament takes place a year later than planned in 2021 due to the coronavirus crisis.
A UEFA Executive Committee meeting was held via video conference on Wednesday.
After its deliberations, the European Football Association announced a number of decisions, including the completion of the Champions League and the Europa League.
It was also confirmed that the original 12 venues would host games in the rescheduled euros.
The meeting was postponed in May after UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin said nine cities had reaffirmed their commitment to targeting, despite problems with the remaining three.
However, these concerns have been resolved and, in addition to confirming the 12 venues, an updated schedule has also been approved.
The tournament begins with a game between Italy and Turkey on June 11, 2021 in Rome. The finale takes place exactly one month later in London.
Baku, Copenhagen, Munich, Budapest, Amsterdam, Dublin, Bucharest, St. Petersburg, Glasgow and Bilbao are the other host cities.
"All existing tickets will remain valid for the tournament in 2021," added a UEFA statement.
"Existing ticket buyers who still want to return their tickets have the last opportunity to request a refund from June 18-25.
"The Executive Committee thanked the host associations, cities and their authorities for their continued support and commitment in organizing the postponed Euro 2020."
Four places are still available in the 24-man competition because the play-offs are still pending.
The international windows for October and November are set to become triple rather than double headings, which means that these connections can be played on October 8 and November 12.
Meanwhile, a new season of the Nations League begins on September 3rd. Until November 18, games in the group phase will take place at regular intervals.
"UEFA made a bold decision when it decided to postpone Euro 2020," said Ceferin.
"We have created the space that has allowed national club competitions across the continent to resume where possible and come to a conclusion."
"While the game was having a lot of trouble as a result of the pandemic, those blows would have been much harder if we hadn't shown the lead in those early days."
