St Petersburg has been picked as one of the host cities for UEFA EURO 2020.

      The UEFA Executive Committee has appointed in Geneva the 13 host associations for UEFA EURO 2020, with England staging the semi-finals and final in London, says an official press release.

      “Wembley will stage the semis and final, the last eight will be in Baku, Munich, Rome and St Petersburg with Amsterdam, Bilbao, Brussels, Bucharest, Budapest, Copenhagen, Dublin and Glasgow also picked,” reads the statement.

      The 13 host associations, selected from 19 applications, are:

      England/London – semi-finals and final

      Azerbaijan/Baku – three group games, one quarter-final

      Belgium/Brussels – three group games, one round of 16 game

      Denmark/Copenhagen – three group games, one round of 16 game

      Germany/Munich – three group games, one quarter-final

      Hungary/Budapest – three group games, one round of 16 game

      Italy/Rome – three group games, one quarter-final

      Netherlands/Amsterdam – three group games, one round of 16 game

      Republic of Ireland/Dublin – three group games, one round of 16 game

      Romania/Bucharest – three group games, one round of 16 game

      Russia/Saint Petersburg – three group games, one quarter-final

      Scotland/Glasgow – three group games, one round of 16 game

      Spain/Bilbao – three group games, one round of 16 game

      England previously staged EURO '96, with Germany beating the Czech Republic 2-1 in the final at Wembley. Of the other host cities announced in Geneva today, Munich (1988), Rome (1968, 1980) and Brussels (1972) have all held UEFA European Championship final matches in the past.

      UEFA's Executive Committee decided in Lausanne on 6 December 2012 to organise a "EURO for Europe" in 2020, rather than a tournament in one or two host countries. The move followed an initial idea revealed by UEFA President Michel Platini at the end of UEFA EURO 2012.

      The Executive Committee also took its decision in the wake of positive feedback from its member national associations as part of a consultation process lasting several months. Then, on 25 January 2013, the Executive Committee decided that the UEFA EURO 2020 final round would be staged in 13 cities around Europe.
