Well, this will be, um, interesting.

Really have to wonder how they're going to pull this off. Would all teams involved get one "home" game? Would every game be in a neutral venue? Will teams just be perpetually on the move instead of having a base? How many days between games will there be, since every team needs extra time to travel?

That last one is a big one for me, because one of the most enjoyable parts of the this tournament is the fact that there's a game almost every day.

Don't really see the point of so much disruption.

The point is clearly money Laughing

They don't give 2 shits about the logistic nightmare for fans and teams alike all they care about is how much money they can make.

Major bellends.

From what I gathered when the first statements of this appeared several weeks ago, they will take the top teams according to the UEFA coefficient and give them the home rights. If this really is the case, this is going to be the most unbalanced and idiotic thing ever. :facepalm: :facepalm:

(That is - top seeds Spain playing in Spain, Germany in Germany etc...)

I think i'll wait to see it happening before i get to talk. Not for neither completely against it , it will be something new for the competition though i have serious doubts about it ... What i find hilarious however , is how Platini decided this after France had already secured 2016 Euros Laughing

Anyhow, why you don't like it Mole ?

The stupidity has no end.

Platini is slowly but surely erasing our memories of him as a player.

You would think as ex player, unlike Sepp Blatter would know better/care more.

Guess not.

I don't think it's that bad on the teams, flying across Europe isn't that exhausting. Some teams will get longer distances in 2014 in Brazil.

But the buzz of the EURO tournament might suffer, when it's scattered around like this. Instead of all the fans attending games gathering in a few cities, there will be several mini-gatherings around Europe. I'd prefer the old way, but a part of me is curious to see how this works out.

@Mole

Well, that is what they wrote about the group stage. And BTW, Platini also suggested using the capital cities' stadiums for the countries, that is, Germany would play the matches in Berlin, England in London etc.

I really hope they will reconsider this (remember, this was published when the idea of the distributed Euro 2020 first was posted.)

Dante it's a logistic nightmare for players and fans alike.... Just for an example what Sepi tweeted me....


so Denmark's first group game is in Kazan, then they'll travel to Porto 2 days after for their next game #facepalm.

Just imagine that it's f*cking retarded, of course it's just an example but it shows how retarded it could be.

I am curious as well , but if what Rwo mentionted there indeed happen , i wouldn't get my hopes up. If the selection of the cities were based on improving the stadiums there , whilst supporting a certain cause with regards to fighting racism or for pure philanthropy reasons , or something as simple as to upgrade some aspects of football around there , that would be good.

Going with the coefficient points way , i don't like it all.

This could possibly be the idea behind all of this.

I mean for example 'top seeds' like Spain playing at home and the remaining teams in the group playing in the same country as well.

Just provided an example based on the seedings which rwo posted above.

I picture one group playing in one country and something along those lines.Doesnt necessarily have to be Spain playing in Spain ,it could be Spain playing in Denmark for instance too and the remaining teams of the group playing in Denmark as well which is not too bad.
