London replaces Brussels as Euro 2020 host

07 December 2017

Rome's Stadio Olimpico will host the opening game of Euro 2020, Wembley will stage three group matches, a round of 16 game plus the semi-finals and final, while the venue pairings have been confirmed, UEFA said.

UEFA made a decision to reallocate the three group-stage games and one last-16 game originally given to the Belgian capital because of delays in the project to build a new 60,000-capacity Eurostadium on the site of Heysel.

Ceferin said the decision followed the Eurostadium project's failure to meet the conditions imposed by the UEFA executive committee in September 2017.

If Ireland qualify, they are guaranteed that two of their three group games would take place at the Aviva Stadium with the other to be played at the Nuevo San Mames.

LaMelo Ball signs with agent, ending UCLA commitment
Meanwhile, Bruins Coach Steve Alford said he has yet to speak with the Balls since LiAngelo left the program earlier this week. It's unclear where the pair will end up, but it will be interesting to see what level of basketball they end up playing at.

"We discussed with Brussels for quite a long time, they were not able to provide us with all the documentation".

Brussels has lost the right to stage matches at Euro 2020 following delays in the development of a new stadium, UEFA said on Thursday.

Qualification will start after the completion of the World Cup finals next summer. and the draw will take place when it is known which teams have made it through.

Staged across 12 countries, Euro 2020's unusual format was former UEFA president Michel Platini's brainchild - a one-off gesture to celebrate the tournament's 60th birthday.

Concealed-carry bill passes House; Frelinghuysen supports it
Opponents, mostly Democrats, said the bill could endanger public safety by overriding state laws that place strict limits on guns. H.R. 38 allows Americans who have concealed-carry permits in one state to legally carry a firearm in all 50 states.

It had been hoped that construction would get under way by 2016, but so far the stadium is yet to be granted planning permission. "We absolutely need a new 45,000-seat stadium and we hope that the competent ministers will grant the permit in January so that a stadium for the 21st century can finally be built in our country".

Here's where the group-stage matches will be played.

A refurbished Heysel, called the King Baudouin Stadium, staged matches at Euro 2000, which Belgium co-hosted with the Netherlands.

Rome and Baku will host Group A, Saint Petersburg and Copenhagen Group B, Amsterdam and Bucharest Group C, London and Glasgow Group D, Bilbao and Dublin Group E, with Munich and Budapest the Group F venues.

GOP tax plan is deeply unpopular, according to new Quinnipiac poll
The same poll put President Donald Trump's approval rating at 35%, and Gallup's daily tracking poll reported the same percentage. This week, the House and Senate prepared to reconcile two different tax plans the chambers passed in previous weeks.

Each of the 12 host cities have been paired together in six groups of two and it also means a trip to Spain could be on the cards for travelling Irish fans.
