FA Wales 'extremely disappointed' at losing bid

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.
