Ten English stadiums 'on standby' to host Euro 2020

Anfield and Old Trafford are among 10 English grounds that could host Euro 2020 matches if the tournament is staged solely in Britain, according to a report.

Ten English stadiums have reportedly been put on standby as part of Britain's bid to host this summer's rescheduled Euro 2020.

The tournament, which was pushed back by 12 months due to the coronavirus pandemic, is still set to take place across Europe in June and July.

Twelve host cities, including London, Glasgow and Dublin, are scheduled to host games, but organisers may be forced to rethink their plans due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has expressed an openness to step in and host the competition solely in Britain if that is the case.

According to The Sun, 10 stadiums have already been provisionally selected to stage games.

Old Trafford and the Etihad Stadium in Manchester could be used, while Anfield in Liverpool and Villa Park in Birmingham are also in contention to host matches.

St James' Park and the Stadium of Light, in Newcastle and Sunderland respectively, are two others.

In the capital, the Emirates Stadium, the London Stadium, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and Wembley - already set to host the semi-finals and final - may also be used.
