Wembley to host seven European Championship games in 2020

Wembley to host seven European Championship games in 2020

Staged across 12 countries, Euro 2020's unusual format was former Uefa president Michel Platini's brainchild - a one-off gesture to celebrate the tournament's 60th birthday.

Meanwhile, London will host seven games during the multi-city tournament after UEFA handed the four fixtures scheduled for Brussels to Wembley today.

"I look forward to welcoming our friends from Bilbao to Dublin where we can build a strong partnership working together to ensure the very best organisational and sporting structures are in place for the summer of 2020".

Natural disaster of magnitude 5 strikes North India, tremors felt in Delhi-NCR
However, reports are coming that the impact of the quake was not so remarkable even many have not felt it. Officials said that no immediate loss of life and property has been reported from across the state.

Four matches in total will be played at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin - three group games and one round of 16 tie - and Ireland will be guaranteed two group games at home if they reach that stage.

Cardiff and Stockholm - which hosted last year's Champions League and Europa League finals respectively - had hoped to fill the breach but the decision was made to expand Wembley's allocation. This is in addition to the semifinals and final, which were already set for Wembley.

Here's where the group-stage matches will be played.

BJP refutes Aiyar's claim that he held no post in Congress
As Aiyar's remarks that Modi was a " neech aadmi " (low-life) in the context of his criticism of the Congress vis-a-vis B.R. I meant low level when I said " neech ", I think in English when I speak in Hindi as Hindi is not my mother tongue.

The boost to England's credentials as a host of major tournament football comes after it emerged this week that chairman Greg Clarke has begun laying the groundwork for a potential bid for the 2030 World Cup.

Koen De Brabander, chief executive of the Belgian football association (KBVB) said he had attempted to get UEFA to hold off but Thursday's decision was not "a death blow for our stadium plans".

The UEFA executive committee did make a number of other decisions, including deciding which groups for Euro 2020 would be located in which cities, as well as deciding that the Stadio Olympico in Rome, Italy will host the first match.

Remembering Montreal and indigenous women
Women who lost their lives to violence were remembered at city hall with music, candles and a moment of silence. My Sisters' Place will host a gathering Wednesday to commemorate the 28th anniversary of the Montreal Massacre.

"This has been a collective and collaborative process and we could not have done it without the support of the Government and the Mayor of London".
