The name of this tournament later became a topic of discussion. With the revised organizational schedule, many people wonder if the tournament should be renamed “Euro 2021”. However, after a recent meeting, UEFA confirmed that it will retain its original name.
Due to Euro 2020 postponed to 2021, they had some meetings to discuss with partners. And the UEFA Executive Committee decides the tournament will continue to be officially named UEFA Euro 2020.
This will help UEFA continue to maintain the meaning of the tournament. It was originally organized with a vision for celebrating the 60th anniversary of the development of the European Cup (1960-2020).
This is also a way for them to emphasize that football has overcome the rigors of the COVID-19 epidemic across Europe and the world. And they also want to recall a challenging 2020 year.
In addition, many brand products have been produced by the time the decision to postpone the award was made. Therefore, changing the name also means the cancellation of these products.
In addition, UEFA also said it is finding the best solution for solving the remainder of the 2019/2020 season. They aim to create the premise to organize the season 2020/2021 completely.
Previously, many thought that moving the date to the next summer made the name Euro 2020 become no longer appropriate. However, UEFA does not want to break the routine of organizing a tournament once every four years in even years and thus the original name will remain.
In addition, UEFA also decided to postpone the time for the women’s EURO 2021 final to 2022. They do so to avoid coinciding with the men’s tournament. Euro 2020 will take place from June 21 to July 11, 2021. And they will still keep the organization in 12 cities across the old continent.
