The Football Association submit an official bid for Wembley to host the semi-finals and final at Euro 2020.

The Football Association have submitted an official bid for Wembley to host the semi-finals and final at Euro 2020.

For the first time in its history, the competition will be held in multiple cities across Europe, with each country given an opportunity to bid for one of the packages made available by UEFA.

As well as registering an interest in the matches from the last four onwards, the FA have also made an offer to host fixtures in the group stages, but they cannot be successful with both bids.

The Football Association of Wales have also put forward a bid for the Millennium Stadium to feature at some stage before the semi-finals.
