The UEFA are considering ways to hold the next top-level European football championship among national teams amidst the coronavirus pandemic. The Association offers that Euro 2020 games took place at four stadiums in one country, so that the number of rides could be reduced to minimum. Thus, UEFA stands for reducing the number of hosting countries, writes The Sun.

Euro 2020 was supposed to take place this summer. 12 European cities - London, Munich, Rome, Bucharest, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Bilbao, Glasgow, Budapest, St. Petersburg, Baku and Dublin - could host the torunament. Changes came under the UEFA initiative, as the Association is about to exclude Baku and St. Petersburg from the list. In case of Baku, the reason is close proximity of this city to the ongoing military action in Nagorno-Karabakh.
