I think this is a decent change.


How anyone can thing bringing games closer to fans is a bad thing is beyond me.

Yes on one side of the coin there may be more opportunity to attend a game closer to home, but should Scotland qualify, who knows whether all the group games would be geographically close to each other or not.  I share the scepticism of some in this thread that the fans could get shafted.

it may or may not be a good idea from the fans' pov. in one way it's a shame as each tournament has a particular identity, and there's a lot more nationalities mingling. if they want more fans to have access then they need to first look at their awful prohibitive ticket pricing.

mainly i think it reflects the fact that staging a major competition in its entirety is a luxury very few (if any) countries in europe can afford.

without something like this, spain, greece, italy would probably not bid for anything for many a year, whereas the odd game here or there they'd be more likely to.

of course it's as much about kick-backs as anything too. but again, if more people can bid, the money the corrupt cunts can demand gets driven up.
