UEFA Euro 2020 will be held in cities across the European continent, great idea me thinks. Can see Glasgow getting a game or two so be good for me! What you think?

I don't like it. I like the idea of one country, or two countries hosting it and all fans travel there. It's going to be interesting to see which cities get chosen and how often are they chosen. Somehow I feel this will favor Western Europe in that a lot of those cities will be regular hosts for the matches. UEFA should focus on spreading things all around Europe, especially paying attention to Eastern Europe.

I think its stupid. How is someone ment to go from country to country to support their team? Flights, transport, accommodation and the rest, 3 times for the group alone.

Not only that, but the games wont be spread out throughout Europe. The capital cities will get games. Places like Milan, Manchester and Munich wont get a fair few games. I read somewhere that it could turn out that even the Nou Camp wont get a game. Imagine, the biggest stadium in Europe not being part of the tournament.

The tournament is highly based on the hosting country and the culture and atmosphere.

I don't like it.

Is that what you do Pete when you get annoyed from people, make out they are bullsh*tters?? Childish and weird to be honest. Football fans sometimes get season tickets, it is common!
