London’s Wembley Stadium will stage the climax of the European Championship, the first time a major football tournament has been held in England since Euro 96.

UEFA’s executive committee awarded the final to Wembley ahead of Munich’s Allianz Arena at a meeting in Geneva. Scotland and Ireland will host matches, but there was bitter disappointment for Wales who missed out in their bid for games at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium.

UEFA is staging the tournament in 13 cities across Europe to mark the 60th anniversary of the first European Championships Glasgow’s Hampden Park and Dublin’s Aviva Stadium will both hold three group games and a last-16 game

The quarter-finals and three group matches will be held in Munich, Baku, Rome and St Petersburg. The other host cities, which will hold three group games and a last-16 game, are Copenhagen, Bucharest, Amsterdam, Bilbao, Budapest and Brussels.
