But while we’ve had to wait an extra 12 months for the next international football tournament, the delay has meant organisers can truly get their stadiums ready for action!

Fans are expected to be able to watch games live at Euro 2020, which will be staged across 12 countries.

The semi-finals and final will be held at Wembley, while supporters will have to fly as far as Baku, St Petersburg and Rome if they are to watch their teams compete for glory.

Here is the ultimate Euro 2020 stadiums guide.

Denmark’s national stadium is the smallest venue at Euro 2020 but it is certainly not to be overlooked. Parken is the biggest ground in Scandinavia and recently upgraded its lighting and hospitality services to meet the highest UEFA standards.

The stadium has a retractable roof, making it a perfect concert venue when football is not being played.

Parken is situated in the north-eastern corner of Copenhagen — a city that is braced to welcome the world to its high-end shopping streets, late-night bars and cool cafes when the tournament finally gets underway.

The Aviva is the jewel in Ireland’s sporting crown and its glass ceiling glitters above the Dublin skyline. This stadium replaced the crumbling Lansdowne Road and is the biggest venue in Ireland.

It sits in the south east of the city and is just a 12-minute drive from the centre. It’s sweeping grandstands on three sides of the pitch fall to a small terrace behind the ‘away’ goal, making it an intimidating venue.

The IFA had considered a joint bid to host Euro 2020 with Scotland and Wales, before UEFA put forward plans for the continent-wide tournament.

Hampden Park

Location: Glasgow, UK
Capacity: 52,063
Year built: 1903
Fixtures: 3x group games, 1x last-16 clash
Home club: Queen’s Park FC

Few stadiums in the world have enjoyed such a rich history as Hampden Park. The ground has staged Champions League and European Cup finals, the 2014 Commonwealth Games and countless concerts.

It is probably most famed for the Hampden Roar, named after the noise generated by Scotland fans when away teams play in Glasgow. The stadium itself is a giant bowl, meaning the atmosphere carries easily around the terraces. This more than makes up for the fact it has a running track around the outside of the pitch.

Glasgow itself is one of the most diverse and vibrant cities in the UK and Hampden is a 15-minute drive south from the centre.

Euro 2020 stadiums Bilbao Spain

Basque Country welcomes European football to its doors in 2021 with three group games and a quarter-final at Bilbao’s stunning San Mames stadium. The ground is situated in the heart of this bustling city and is an icon of the skyline already.

The roof was extended in 2017 to ensure full coverage for every supporter during rainy days. The extension meant the lighting had to be improved.

Bilbao itself is famed for its food, nightlife and art scene. If the Guggenheim Museum isn’t to your taste then the bars that litter this city will certainly keep football fans entertained.

Named after Holland’s iconic former player Johan Cruyff, ‘De Arena’ is a giant building on the outskirts of Amsterdam. It was originally designed to cater for an athletics track but that idea was scrapped in the early 1990s.

It staged five games at Euro 2000, including the semi-final between Netherlands and Italy. It also staged the 1998 Champions League final and 2013 Europa League final.

The ground has a retractable roof, which makes it one of the Netherlands’ most iconic music and events venues when the football season is in hiatus. Amsterdam itself is famed for its tourist attractions, museums, nightlife and beer.

Another stadium with a retractable roof, the decision to build the new Arena Nationala in 2007 was a much-needed move, what with the previous Stadionul National crumbling away. The ground took less than four years to build and quickly became the biggest stadium in Romania.

The Arena Nationala is noted for its large VIP and box facilities, which means national home games are a lucrative source of income for the Romanian FA. It hosted the 2012 Europa League final, where Atletico Madrid beat Athletic Bilbao 3-0.

The exterior walls of the ground light up during matches and the ground itself is thought to have cost over €600m to build — more than double the original budget.

Fans can drive to the ground in around 10 minutes from Budapest city centre, but taxis or public transport are considered better options.

It took 10 years to build Zenit St Petersburg’s new home but many Russians will claim it was worth it. The Krestovsky Stadium is a magnificent arena located on the outskirts of the city, overlooking the Gulf of Finland.

It was one of the key venues for the 2018 World Cup, staging seven games during the tournament including France’s semi-final victory over Belgium.

Russia will play two of their Group B games at the Krestovsky Stadium, with third third clash – against Denmark – taking place in Copenhagen.

Azerbaijan burst onto the world football stage when it opened the Olympic Stadium in 2015. Before then, very few international competitions had made its way to the far eastern outskirts of Europe.

The stadium features a running track and mainly consists of two large rings of terraces that circle the action. It has hosted the 2015 European Games and the 2019 Europa League final between Arsenal and Chelsea.

The Olympic Stadium is a 15-minute drive from the centre of Baku and lies north east of the city on the banks of the Caspian Sea.

Located on the banks of the Tiber in north west Rome, the Stadio Olimpico is the spiritual heart of Italy’s sporting infrastructure. Rome itself is one of the most visited places on the planet and the city will play host to three Italy group games, including their clash with Wales.

Euro 2020 stadiums Alliance Arena Munich

Allianz Arena

Location: Munich, Germany
Capacity: 75,000
Year built: 2005
Fixtures: 3x group games, 1x quarter-final clash
Home club: Bayern Munich

The Allianz Arena was built ahead of Germany’s staging of the 2006 World Cup and is one of the premier sporting venues in European football. Bayern Munich have made the ground their own, yet lost their ‘home’ Champions League final to Chelsea in 2012.

The stadium is famed for its colour-changing exterior and relatively low cost (€340m) for a ground of its size. Bayern departed the Olympiastadion in 2005 to move into their new home.

Munich itself is famed for its beer scene and museums. The stadium is located north of the city centre and is a half-hour drive away. Fans can access the ground using public transport.

Euro 2020 stadiums Wembley final

Wembley Stadium

Location: London, UK
Capacity: 90,000
Year built: 2007
Fixtures: 3x group games, 1x last-16 clash, 2x semi-finals, final

Wembley calls itself the ‘Home of Football’ and it is certainly the centre stage for Euro 2020, with seven games set to tale place in west London. The stadium is the biggest in the UK and boasts the famous arch that keeps the roof suspended above the ground.

The old Wembley was demolished in 2002 after staging one World Cup, multiple FA Cup finals, five European Cup finals, the 1948 Olympic Games, two Rugby League World Cup finals and iconic concerts such as Live Aid.

The new stadium went over budget at a cost of almost £800m, took longer than expected to build and is often criticised for failing to generate an atmosphere during England home games.

It is a 30-minute tube ride from the centre of London and is a massive site for fans to mingle outside. As for London, the city remains one of the most multi-cultural and vibrant urban areas in the world, attracting around 30 million visitors each year.
