Seville has been chosen by UEFA as one of the main host cities for the greatest European football tournament
A few weeks ago, UEFA confirmed that Seville would be one of the cities hosting the European Football Championship in 2021. To celebrate the 60th anniversary of this competition between national football teams, the UEFA Executive Committee has decided – for the first time ever – to host the final phase of the Euro 2021 in not just one country, but in 12 host cities across the continent.
Initially, the Spanish city selected was Bilbao, but as a result of COVID-19 health restrictions, the Basque city did not make it to the final list and Seville was selected instead.
These are the Euro 2021 host cities
This way, finally representing the entire European territory, the host cities selected to hold Euro 2021 matches are Copenhagen (matches in the Danish city will be played at Telia Parken Stadium); Budapest (Puskás Arena); Dublin (Aviva Stadium); Amsterdam (Johann Cruyff Arena); Bucharest (Arena Națională); Baku (Olympic Stadium); Munich (Allianz Arena); Rome (Stadio Olimpico); Saint Petersburg (Krestovsky Stadium); Scotland (Hampden Park); London (with Wembley as the site of the English national team’s games and the Euro 2021 final), and the La Cartuja stadium in Seville for the Spanish national team’s Euro 2021 Group Phase matches.
