Wembley Stadium

June 5, 2013 by  

Wembley Stadium, David Bernstein, the Football Association’s chairman, believes he is leaving the organisation in a strong bidding position to host the Euro 2020 final and semi-finals at Wembley when Uefa stages it for the first time as a multination tournament.

Bernstein has been informed that the Ataturk Stadium in Istanbul represents the strongest rival bidder but the FA is “confident” that England will have an authentic chance when it comes to choosing the 15 host cities.

“I understand Turkey have a good chance of getting the final if they don’t get the Olympic Games,” Bernstein said. “We will put in two bids – one for the semi-final and final, and one for a package of earlier matches which would include England home matches being played at Wembley. The bids will go in alongside one another but we can’t get both.”

Adrian Bevington, the managing director of Club England, said: “What we do know is Uefa is very positive about Wembley, as we have had two Champions League finals [in three seasons]. We’re confident we will be in a real mix to get it.”
