09/19 06:30 CDT UEFA picks Wembley for Euro 2020 semifinals, final UEFA picks Wembley for Euro 2020 semifinals, final ROB HARRIS AP Sports Writer GENEVA (AP) --- UEFA has selected Wembley Stadium in London to host the semifinals and final of the first continent-wide European Championship in 2020, ending a run of bidding failures by England. Wembley was selected ahead of Bayern Munich's stadium in Friday's vote by the UEFA executive committee. England had failed in bids for the 2006 and 2018 World Cups. England hosted the Euro '96 tournament with the final at the old Wembley. The venue has been rebuilt since then into a 90,000-capacity stadium and staged two Champions League finals in the past three years. The new format gave a chance for countries that wouldn't necessarily have a chance to host the tournament on their own to stage some games. Baku, Azerbaijan, was one of the cities awarded a quarterfinal match and three group stage games. The others were Munich, Rome's Olympic Stadium and the new Zenit St. Petersburg venue in Russia, Copenhagen, Bucharest, Amsterdam, Dublin, Bilbao, Budapest, Brussels and Glasgow also got three group stage games, plus a round of 16 match.
