The UK are reportedly confident of hosting next year’s Euros.

FA and UEFA have been locked in talks to make the UK as the sole hosts for the Euros tournament next summer.

As per the original plans the tournament would be hosted in 12 cities across Europe but due to the pandemic, alternatives are being considered.

According to reports, the UK could probably become the hosts for next year’s Euros after talks between FA and UEFA.

The Euros perhaps were slated to be played last summer but the pandemic caused the competition to be postponed for next year.

Nonetheless, UEFA Chief Alexsander Ceferin is looking to keep the competition’s format unhinged, although there are doubts over it.

A spokesperson from UEFA said,

‘UEFA’s efforts are focused on planning for a tournament in all 12 original venues with fans.

‘Decisions that run counter to that plan could be made much nearer the time if necessary, but there are presently no plans to change any venue.’

It is also added that FA is confident that the tournament will be played with spectators around.

Scotland, who recently booked their place to their first-ever Euros, will be playing their home games at Hampden Park.

With Wales, they have games scheduled to be played in Azerbaijan and Turkey, but they could host in Cardiff if the UK are to become the hosts.

Besides Scotland, North Macedonia, Hungary and Slovakia have emerged as the winners in the playoffs of Euro Qualifiers.
