The European Football Championships held in 2020 will mark the 60th anniversary of UEFA organised football tournaments, and as a result, UEFA president Michel Platini has decried that the competition will be held across multiple cities in a “romantic” one-off celebration of football across the continent.

Unfortunately due to Covid-19 Euro 2020 will now be held the following year in 2021.

2020 – United Arab Emirates

Due to Covid-19 restrictions and the lockdown in India, it was decided that the 2020 Indian Premier League season would be played in United Arab Emirates.
