Uefa president Michel Platini says the 2020 European
Championship could be spread across various cities in
Europe, rather than having a single host. "The Euros in 2020
could be held all over Europe, it could be either one
country and 12 stadiums, or one stadium in 12 or 13 cities."
Turkey had been favourite to host the event in 2020,
but their bid has hit difficulties due to
a desire to host the Olympic Games in Istanbul in the same
Scotland, Wales and the Republic of Ireland have also
formally declared an interest in hosting Euro 2020.
Platini confirmed a final decision would be taken in January
or February 2013.
