Facing the complicated situation of the disease, UEFA has made plans to ensure EURO 2020 – the largest tournament in Europe for the national team held every 4 years. According to the disclosure, the most powerful football authority in Europe has planned to move EURO to 2021.

However, the above scenario will put the World Football Association (FIFA) in a difficult position when conflicts of interest with tournaments they are in control of will take place in 2021.

Until the present time, the opening time of EURO 2020 is still a big question mark when UEFA and FIFA have not been able to find a common voice. However, in a recent development, Russia is ready to stand out to replace England, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands and Italy to host Europe’s No. 1 tournament this summer.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko himself said that they are ready to host the entire tournament instead of 4 matches as expected (3 matches in the group stage and 1 match in the quarterfinals).

In addition, Russia has had the experience of hosting the 2018 World Cup and possesses enough modern facilities to host all world-class sporting events.
