Wembley awarded four more Euro 2020 games to take total to seven

Up to 90,000 supporters will be able to watch each Euro 2020 match at the national stadium

After been selected as one of the host cities in September 2014, it was confirmed that the Aviva Stadium would host two Republic of Ireland games, if qualification was achieved.

Meanwhile, London will host seven games during the multi-city tournament after UEFA handed the four fixtures scheduled for Brussels to Wembley today. Bilbao and Dublin were paired together.in Group E.

Cardiff and Stockholm - which hosted last year's Champions League and Europa League finals respectively - had hoped to fill the breach but the decision was made to expand Wembley's allocation.

However, Uefa opted for Wembley, which has already been chosen as the venue for the semi-finals and final.

The opening game will be held at Stadio Olimpico - home of AS Roma - in Rome on June 12, 2020 and could feature either or both of Italy and Azerbaijan.

But the exclusion of Brussels means the 90,000-seater venue will also get group games and a match in the first knockout round.

The building of a new Brussels stadium for the tournament had run into delays involving the applications for construction and environmental permits.

Glenn also thanked the government and mayor of London for their help in securing the games, which will be staged in a post-Brexit Britain.

Sports minister Tracey Crouch added: "With matches being played across Europe, for the 60th anniversary of the competition, it will be a very special tournament and I know that we will give fans a warm welcome when they visit England's iconic national stadium".

The British Isles will host a total of 15 of the 51 matches at Euro 2020, with Hampden Park in Glasgow and Dublin's Aviva Stadium each set to stage three group matches and a last-16 tie.
