Earlier version[edit]

This article has been deleted earlier. See Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/UEFA Euro 2020 for the discussion for this process and User:Avala/UEFA Euro 2020 for a copy of the article that was deleted. Yosh3000 (talk) 02:03, 3 April 2011 (UTC)

The last version before the end of the AFD was this, which is substantially different from the present edition of the page. Nyttend (talk) 22:20, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Absolutely. Btw, I have no opinion about that deletion process or a potensial deletion process with this recent article, I just wanted to inform about the former version since there were new contributers on this new article. As long as there are sources (hopefully media i suppose) about the potensial bids, I'm perfectly happy, and for the comparrison: the information about the bidding process for Euro 2016 is kept at UEFA Euro 2016 bids. Yosh3000 (talk) 22:43, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
The overall content may be different, but the reasons for deletion that we came up with at the AfD are still applicable. There is still no evidence that the tournament will actually occur beyond an assumption that the four-year cycle that the tournament currently follows will continue beyond UEFA Euro 2016. Even the "bids" mentioned in the article are only tentative at present, since UEFA has not opened the bidding process yet. There is no source for the "Expanded Format" section, and the "Hosting requirements" section is pure conjecture based on an assumption that there will be no changes to the Euro 2016 hosting requirements. As I said, this article is all crystal ball and no substance. – PeeJay 00:13, 6 April 2011 (UTC)
The whole reasoning that the cup is not certain to work is completely unnecesary. If future was not allowed to be put on wikipedia, there would be much less information, like how there would be no article on the World Cup 2014, 2018, and 2022. Note that the articles say "will be", therefore they are completely valid. Concerning assumption, it is not that, as the article is explaining that there is interest in hosting the cup, not that those are bids. Please read more carefully. (talk) 07:03, 24 April 2011 (UTC)


So where is a source for the Romanian Stadia? That youtube-video? Who is the author of that, that could very well be a fan. It's uploaded by a random user. -Koppapa (talk) 21:41, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Stadia still needs sources. The 3 romanian refs for the bid don't mention those. -Koppapa (talk) 18:48, 24 June 2011 (UTC) (talk) 07:57, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

About Turkey[edit]

You can rule out Turkey because Turkey declared candidancy to host 2020 olympics officially.


Azerbaijan has already refuted the news about a possible joint bid. World Football Insider:Exclusive - Azerbaijan Only Pitching to Win Olympics Not UEFA Euro 2020 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Preacher lad (talkcontribs) 12:46, 11 March 2012 (UTC)


seems like article could use review by native speaker of certain areas being talked about. there is an opportunity to place german letters in the appropriate positions with accent marks, etc. --RichardMills65 (talk) 19:38, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

In which areas would German letters be appropriate? I'm confused as to what you mean. mgSH 22:50, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
The only German "accent" marks are a diaeresis above a, o, and u (Ää, Öö, Üü) and the s-z ligature (ẞß). None of those letters are needed in the article.-- (talk) 13:22, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

Only potential final venues[edit]

I see that so far only potential final venues are being mentioned in this article. (I presume) we keep it to that for now? So no mentioning of possible group games host cities (like Kyiv or Donetsk)? I think that would be best since we don't know what city is how serious about it now. — Yulia Romero • Talk to me! 22:06, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

Agree. Only until more information about other host cities became available. If I'm not wrong that decisions should be made during next year or so. On unrelated note, page UEFA Euro 2020 should no longer redirect here. Since "host" of this tournament has been technically declared. Nightfall87 (talk) 22:25, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done; see Euro 2020; I will also move this discussion to there.... — Yulia Romero • Talk to me! 22:38, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done that too by now. Please don't respond to my question(s) above here; but do that at this new EURO 2020 talkpage please. — Yulia Romero • Talk to me! 00:55, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

THIS ARTICLE IS NOT FOR INFO ABOUT: Cities who expressed interest as host cities of UEFA Euro 2020 pan-European version[edit]

This article is about countries who wanted to host all matches of the championship; so please only insert info about that into this article. UEFA announced on 6 December 2012 that this bidding process had stopped/was canceled.

For cities who expressed (since 6 December 2012) an interest as host cities to host 1 match of the pan-European UEFA Euro 2020 (it will be held in thirteen cities in thirteen different European countries during the summer of 2020), edit 2020 UEFA European Football Championship#Expression of interest as host cities please. — Yulia Romero • Talk to me! 20:43, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

What nonsense is that stuff above? This article is about the bidding process and should contain information about interested cities and indeed this info is what this article actually contains presently (good that it is so), the said info being found at no other place in wikipedia.Barrara (talk) 12:25, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

How can Spanish bid have 4 cities?[edit]

Even this article states the rules about standard and finals package as follows: "Each association may bid for either or both of the above packages (same city or two different cities)." How come can Spanish FA then have four cities in its bid? Please explain. Mistake somewhere? (talk) 09:07, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

And what is that "only proposed"-thing regarding Belgrad's bid (see map of this article)? What kind of bid category is that, are they or aren't they bidding? (talk) 09:12, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
No one answers, so no oneknows anything or is interested in clarifying the issue. (talk) 13:22, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Baku is cut off the map.[edit]

Is there any way we can squeeze Baku onto the map? It's just annoying - maybe we can put it up on the most far right hand side. Popsiclesare (talk) 05:07, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

There's a second map below which includes Ankara and Baku. A new 'base map' (perhaps 'Location Map UEFA') would have to be created to incorporate Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan on it. I'm trying a 'see map below' fix as well. --Super Nintendo Chalmers (talk) 08:55, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

Map of Asia[edit]

Using a complete map of Asia to show the Kazakh and Azerbaijani bidding cities that don't fit in the European map is pretty ugly. Can someone upload a map of Europe extended to display all of Kazakhstan, all of Azerbaijan, and all of Israel, like the one they have on UEFA's website? --Theurgist (talk) 10:39, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
