Why are the games happening all over Europe?

There are two main reasons why the format of the tournament is a bit different this year. As mentioned, the tournament was previously hosted in one country, or two at most. However, the year 2020 marked the 60th anniversary of the European Championship, which was first held back in 1960. So to celebrate the occasion, UEFA decided to let every country participate in hosting the games.

There’s another reason for this change as well. Although France did a good job hosting the tournament in 2016, the interest in hosting the tournament in 2020 was thinner than usual. Turkey was the only nation that wanted to host the tournament alone. The rest were just joint bids. This is where UEFA decided to spread the cost and let every country host the games instead.

Then UEFA president Michel Platini said: “If you need to build airports or ten stadiums in a country, this would be rather easy because it would be one stadium per host city.”

This is why this is one of the few times when no new stadiums will be built in order to host a major European tournament.
