  • Wembley Stadium view in London

Brussels has lost the right to stage matches at Euro 2020 following delays in the development of a new stadium, UEFA said on Thursday.

Belgium's capital city has been ruled out as a planned new stadium is still to be built and Uefa has not received the necessary guarantees.

Both Wales' Principality Stadium and Sweden's Stockholm Friend's Arena had been hoping to replace Brussels, but UEFA opted against the venues for last season's Champions League and Europa League finals.

UEFA are marking the 60th anniversary of the tournament by hosting it in a shitload of cities hence why matches at the Aviva could be on the cards.

The four games were instead awarded to England's national stadium, Wembley. Wembley Stadium was already set to host the semifinals and finals of the tournament.

While the full schedule is still to be confirmed by UEFA, the Stadio Olimpico in Rome will stage the opening game.

As well as deciding where the first game, on June 12, will be and what to do about Brussels' difficulties, the executive committee also announced the geography of the group stage.

The boost to England's credentials as a host of major tournament football comes after it emerged this week that chairman Greg Clarke has begun laying the groundwork for a potential bid for the 2030 World Cup.

Qualified host nations are guaranteed two games at home.

The other host cities for Euro 2020 are: Baku, Copenhagen, Munich, Budapest, Rome, Amsterdam, Bucharest and Bilbao.

"The FAW complied with all of the bid requirements and has written to UEFA to request feedback on the decision so that it can understand the reasons behind the vote for future reference".

Koen De Brabander, chief executive of the Belgian Football Association, said in a statement that they did everything they could to make UEFA hold off.

Should they qualify, the Republic of Ireland will be in Group E of the tournament.
