Turkey - Would be interested in this.

Serbia - Bosnia - Crotia - Would be my vote, Crotia is a great country from what i visited and Serbia and Croatia actually have great football teams.

I also like the other eastern European bids, i don't mind honestly.

I love the location of the Inverness Cale stadium and the fact that you can see right into it as you come over the Kessock bridge from the Black Isle.

Why not Ireland?

the thing that blew Euro 2008 was the joke that was the Irish half of the bid. They promised 4 grounds, but couldn't garuntee any.


That has changed though - the GAA would probably be open to the use of Croker, they now have a proper ground at Lansdowne road (both in place) - and I think they could possibly bring Thommond Park up to standard with temporary seating? That isn't going to cost them much


Or failing that, after Qatar's bid (6 grounds in Doha - does that open the door for Scotland to use all 3 Glasgow grounds?) Scotland could possibly just about manage to stage it solo.

Using:

the grounds listed (7 - although i'd chose Easter road, or David Murrays proposal at Edinburgh Park)

plus temporary expansions to Rugby Park, and either Pittodrie (if possible - obviously the ground would then be knocked down post tournament) or McDiarmid Park.

Would also like to see the oppertunity used to re-do Hampden properly - Ideally bringing capacity to approx. 65-70 K, but at least keeping it at current size, but closer to pitch.

Maybe London could mount a solo bid for Euro 2020, using:

Wembley
Twickenham
Emirates
New White Hart Lane
Olympic Stadium
New Chelsea ground
Selhurst Park expanded
The Valley expanded

Makes more sense than Qatar 2022.

It's probably going to be Turkey, and honestly they deserve it. They are a growing market and economy. By 2020 their high speed rail network should be in place, making it possible for fans to transfer easily between cities. There will not be a risk of white elephants as most turkish cities are already in the process of planning new stadia for their teams.

They lost 2016 by a single vote. Unless one of the big boys (Germany, England, Spain) get involved, which would be surprising, then this is really Turkey's to lose.

Ex-Yu bid

I really dont know where one gets such a stupid idea. That will never going to happen. Never. As there is much difference between those three countries, starting with political instability, recent war. Then, there are problems in FAs of all three countries, Bosnian FA is going to be suspended in March, if they dont make some changes in statue (and they wont, as demented people are in charge of FA). Then, major problem is financial side. Croatia has external debt of more than € 40B, growth of number of umemployed people is increasing rapidly, as like as in other two countries. And, last, UEFA or any serious organization wont allow organizing competition of such a importance in THREE countries (we have seen problems in Asian Cup 2007, held in FOUR countries).

So, this bid will never become reality.

And, what user Spicy said, there was story about Croatia / Slovenia / North Italy to bid. And it is just for one big ROFL.



Id like to see it in Turkey, as their love and passion for football is just stunning. And they do have great fans.

I guess unless Platini intervenes again, Turkey is the front runner to host, right? They deserve it too. Should have held one long time ago.

I'd love to visit a Czech & Slovak tournament! I wonder if the Scots could host it themselves?

Thought: wonder if we'd ever see a Baltic tournament? (Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania)

Actually, that would be pretty cool!

Netherlands would be able to do it also, but then without the support of Belgium.
Turkey would be also a fine candidate for it

I would love to see EC 2020 in Hungary&Romania, but I think too, that this time Turkey will be the winner. I just hope, that they will chose really the best bid, and not the most $ one...

Its down to Turkey and Italy I think. It'd be crazy to suggest otherwise.

bujdoso - The thing is, any bid in Europe is a good bid. Hungary & Romania, Italy, Turkey etc all make sense. Europe knows how to put on a great show; Austria and Switzerland showed that a cumulative population of 20 million is enough to host a fantastic tournament. Fans always travel around Europe, so you cant really lose.

For me, European Champ bids need to be about developing infrastructure. Italy is crying out for it, Turkey has been more active on that front but certainly a country of that size (and a growing world power) could do with an extensive upgrade in infrastructure and stadia.

Again, there are no bad bids for Euros, just good and better ones. It is afterall the best football tournament around

Yes you are right, the differences between european bids is minimal. But, if they give always the tournaments to the best developped countrys, other countrys never will close up... But it's clear, that it's hard to find the right balance between top developped countrys, and the others.

In that sense, may the best win!

How nice that would be

Where would you place the 4th romanian stadium? Sure, there's Ghencea as a good second option in Bukarest, but what about a 3rd city like for example Constanta? I have no idea about their team, but it would make sense to place a stadium there (sea, tourism is already at high level).

In Hungary it's more difficult to judge, where they should play. Debrecen has to be, but I doubt, that they will biuld there a 44k arena. They are waiting now for ages for a european standard stadium, plans for a new 21k stadium were presented this year. But I have no idea if this stadium could be upgraded in case of EC 2020. Györ has completed this year a brand new stadium, there are if I'm right 20 and something k places, I don't think that it could be upgraded. Fehérvár has only a new main tribune, so they could demolish the old stands and build new ones for the EC.
