As the race to host Euro 2020 hots up, 39 different cities from 32 countries have been put forward to stage the European competition.

The final decision for which cities get to host the tournament will be announced on the 25th September.

Michel Platini has revealed that the decision to have numerous hosts is a one-off idea just to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the competition.

A UEFA spokesman told a news conference: “The matches will be split into 13 packages – 12 cities who will have three group stage matches and one knock-out round match, and one city will host the two semi-finals and final.

“There will be only one venue per country and it means the semi-finals and the final will be played in the same venue.”

Below is the full list of cities and countries:

Armenia (Yerevan), Azerbaijan (Baku), Belarus (Minsk), Belgium (Brussels), Bulgaria (Sofia), Croatia (Zagreb), Czech Republic (Prague), Denmark (Copenhagen), England (London), Finland (Helsinki), France (Lyon), Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (Skopje), Germany (Munich), Greece (Athens), Hungary (Budapest), Israel (Jerusalem), Italy (Rome and Milan), Kazakhstan (Astana), Netherlands (Amsterdam), Poland (Warsaw and Chorzow), Portugal (Lisbon and Porto), Republic of Ireland (Dublin), Romania (Bucharest), Russia (St Petersburg), Scotland (Glasgow), Serbia (Belgrade), Spain (Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao and Valencia), Sweden (Solna), Switzerland (Basel), Turkey (Istanbul), Ukraine (Kyiv and Donetsk) and Wales (Cardiff).
