Interested federations have time until September 2013 to confirm bidding for Euro 2020. Hosts will be chosen in May 2014 and UEFA confirms bids of more than two countries will be accepted.
Today’s Executive Committee meeting in Kyiv brought more decisions than just those of Super Cup hosts. We also learned details about Euro 2020 bidding procedure. UEFA will hold discussions with all national associations that will conclude with the publishing of the detailed bid regulations in December 2012.
From then onwards associations interested in bidding should prepare their bid documentation ready for the deadline to submit bids to UEFA in September 2013. The submitted bids will then be evaluated and an announcement of the host(s) for UEFA EURO 2020 will be made in May 2014.
As previously envisaged, bids from three countries will be accepted just like those of single and double bidders with detailed regulations expected in December 2012.
So far three bids were officially announced by candidate countries. One of Turkey, the other by Azerbaijan and Georgia and third by Scotland, Ireland and Wales.
