Where is Euro 2020 being played, what are the dates and where is the final?

The giant trophy has been all over Europe (Picture: Getty Images) With the 2018 World Cup coming to an end, attention is already turning to the next major tournament for the European nations which will be Euro 2020. The competition is going to be unique as it is not going to be hosted by one country, rather spread out across the whole continent. 12 cities in 12 different countries will host matches, an idea which came from former UEFA President Michael Platini, as a celebration for the 60th anniversary of the tournament. Here is how it will work and when the tournament is being played… Gordon Strachan and Sir Alex Ferguson celebrate Glasgow being one of the host cities (Picture: Getty Images) Euro 2020 will run from 12 June – 12 July in 2020 and will feature 24 teams. Qualifying for the competition will run from 21 March 2019 – 31 March 2020. The 12 host cities will all host three group stage matches and one contest in the round of 16 or the quarter-finals. One lucky city will get to host both semi-finals and the final, and that city is London.
