Andrew RT Davies, leader of the Welsh Conservatives, has expressed his disappointment at the news that Cardiff won't hold 2020 European Championship matches.
This is extremely disappointing news. From the success of the recent NATO Summit to the Ryder Cup in 2010, Wales has proven itself more than capable of putting on a great show.
Hosting matches at UEFA 2020 could have generated as much as £40 million for the local economy and put our nation in front of a world television audience of hundreds of millions. To say I am disappointed is an understatement.
The Football Association of Wales has expressed disappointment at the news that Cardiff has not been selected to host 2020 European Championship matches.
The FAW is obviously extremely disappointed by today’s news but would like to congratulate those cities that have been chosen as UEFA EURO 2020 host cities. We believed that the Millennium Stadium, with its 74,154 capacity and extensive Skybox and hospitality facilities, would have been an ideal venue for UEFA EURO 2020 and provide UEFA with significant revenues.
But we of course respect UEFA’s decision.
The FAW would like to thank all the partners that worked so hard to support Cardiff’s bid. While they, like us, will be disappointed with today’s news, there is much to be positive about Welsh football as we look to the future.
Really surprised Cardiff didn't get a game, it's a great stadium.
The Football Association of Wales has thanked those who supported Cardiff's bid to host 2020 European Championship matches.
Uefa announced that Cardiff has been unsuccessful in its bid, with Glasgow, Bucharest and Budapest among the cities chosen ahead of Cardiff.
Cardiff has been unsuccessful in its bid to host matches in the 2020 European Championship, Uefa has announced.

Thunder and lightning brought a warm and dry start to September to a soggy end. But how are we looking for the weekend?Read the full story ›
