Cardiff given chance to re-bid for Euro 2020 matches

Cardiff has been given the chance to re-bid for a place as a host city for the pan-European Euro 2020 finals.

It comes amid doubts over one of the other host venues in Brussels, Belgium on which UEFA will make a decision in December 2018.

In the meantime Cardiff, along with London and Stockholm, have been requested to re-submit bids following their successful hosting of the 2017 Champions League finals at the Principality Stadium.

FAW Chief Executive Jonathan Ford welcomed the news saying:

“Naturally the FAW are delighted to be given this opportunity.

“We will work hard to once again produce a strong case for the games to be played in Cardiff and will use the experience of the Champions League to demonstrate what a success we will make of hosting these matches.

“It would be fantastic for Welsh football to not only qualify for the Euro 2020 finals but also to stage some of the key matches."
