You're reading: England wants Wembley to host final of Euro 2020

LONDON — UEFA President Michel Platini has held talks with English football officials about staging key 2020 European Championship matches at Wembley Stadium. 

Platini has proposed scattering matches across as many as 12 European countries, rather than selecting a single host nation in 2020.

A person familiar with the situation says Platini discussed the prospect of using Wembley for the Euro 2020 semifinals and final with English Football Association chairman David Bernstein last week in London. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the talks were private.

Platini came up with the radical plan for Euro 2012 after Turkey emerged as the only formal bidder. But if Istanbul’s 2020 Olympics bid wins next September, Turkey won’t be allowed to stage the Euros in the same year as well.
