    Its bollocks yeah. On one hand it gives countries who wouldn't otherwise be able to host a tournament a chance to have it for a bit like Romania, Ireland, Denmark etc.

    On the other hand it's a pain for anyone who wants to take time off and follow their team around. And it could lack some of the host nation appeal. I dunno. The teams already travel around playing each other in different countries in the qualifying stages. So, it just seems unnecessary marketing ploy/money related to me.

    So both the 2018 and 2022 World Cups will take place at not-terribly-appealing locations for most travelling fans, and Euro 2020 will make it extra difficult/ more costly to attend multiple matches or host cities...

    Roll on 2026 World Cup, I guess :(

    Euro 2020: Wembley to host seven matches after Brussels loses right to host games

    So, Wembley gets four extra games (alongside the semis and final), while Wales doesn't get any.
    Gotta say, does seem weird the Principality (nee Millennium) Stadium wasn't selected. Never been there myself but by all accounts it's a very good stadium with good transport links, and would maintain the notion of visiting lots of different nations. Seven games including the semis and finals doesn't seem right, especially somewhere as uninspiring as Wembley.
