Postponed to 2021, the European Football Championship will be held in the same 12 cities that were supposed to host the participants of the European Championship 2020, which was postponed due to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus pandemic. We plan to keep the same venues, the same cities, the same stadiums, UEFA Champions League president Aleksander Čeferin said in an interview with AP released on Wednesday 18 March.

If there are any difficulties, then we can limit ourselves to 11, 9 or fewer stadiums. But, according to the plan, everything remains as it is, he added. This means that Munich will remain one of the hosts, where three group matches and one quarter-final will be played. In addition to Munich, matches will be held in Rome, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Bilbao, St. Petersburg, Bucharest, Budapest, Baku, Glasgow, Dublin and London. Both semi-finals and the final will be played in the British capital.

The UEFA Executive Committee decided to postpone the UEFA EURO 2020 to next year on March 17 due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. This is the biggest crisis in the history of football. We all know that this terrible virus makes football and all life in Europe almost impossible. We knew that we would have to cancel all competitions, Ceferin said.
