Azerbaijan Wants to Host the Euro 2020 Football

President Ilham Aliyev signed a decree "On Measures for the nomination of Baku to host the European Football Championship in 2020."

The President instructed the Association of Football Federations prepare bid book to the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA). The Cabinet of Ministers tasked to resolve issues related to the order.

Earlier, the idea was co-hosting Euro 2020 Azerbaijan and Georgia. In addition, the interest in the tournament showed Turkey, as well as co-Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

However, December 6, 2012 at a meeting in Lausanne (Switzerland), the UEFA Executive Committee took an unprecedented decision that the final tournament of the Euro 2020 will be held in more than one or two countries and in various major cities across Europe.

This decision of the executive committee is due to the fact that in 2020 the number of participants of the championship will increase from 16 to 24 teams. This complicates the championship in a single country. -06D -
