Euro 2020 Bid


Recommended Posts

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/18069127

 

Supposedly we need to put forward 10 stadiums to declare a bid but all 3 nations have the same problem. Too many stadiums in the same city and pretty poor transport infrastructure.

 

Id see the current choices as

 

Murrayfield

Hampden

Millenium Stadium

Aviva Stadium

Expanded White rock stadium

 

5 others from where though?

New Stadiums in Dundee & Aberdeen?

New Stadiums in Wrexham & Aberystwyth?

New Stadiums in Cork, Limerick & Galway ?

And why would they think having a 3 country bid where none of the countries share a land border would be a good idea?

 

Japan and South Korea were hardly close.

 

There's no chance of this going ahead.

 

Hampden, Ibrox, Murrayfield, Easter Road, Wiggie Arena, Millennium Stadion, New Ninian Park, Swansea(?), Landsdown Road & Croaker would be an alright line up.

 

If we're that short of Stadiums, can't we do what Denmark did in 1992 and just 'borrow' some from across the border, like say: St. James's/SoL?

 

The only other bids are Turkey & Georgia, or which if Istanbul gets the 2020 Olympics, it's gonna be us or Georgia for the Euros, scary thought.

can't we do what Denmark did in 1992

 

what

Fail to qualify from our group but get let in when another country descends into civil war and then win the tournament when its being hosted by Sweden?

You cant have 2 stadiums in the same city let alone next door to each other (Ninian and Millenium stadium)

Err...yes?

 

I only learned today (ie. right now) that Euro '92 wasn't hosted by Denmark.

Yeah you can.

 

Portugal had 2 stadiums in Lisbon & 2 in Porto. You're not allowed to use 3 in the same city.

 

Ninian & Millennium are also fucking miles apart. I had to get a train between them last time we played down there.

Yes, 2.1 of them.

 

Get the train from Central to Ninian.

 

Costs £1.85.

 

(There's barriers at Central, so it's not possible to bump it)

 

(ALSO: Ninian's been demolished FYI your information)

 

Yes and the new stadium is across the car-park from it

Can you imagine the Celtic fans if a Celtic bid goes through and they dont use Parkheid!
