FOOTBALL bosses are preparing to rip up the format for the Euros – and SCRAP some venues.
Uefa privately accept there is no way that next summer’s tournament – postponed because of Covid – will be able to go ahead with the planned 12 host cities.
A worst-case scenario could see one country stage the tournament with four venues being used.
Wembley is due to stage seven games, including England’s three group matches, plus the semi-finals and final.
The competition is sure to go ahead – owing to the millions Uefa will receive from TV companies.
And the governing body is hopeful supporters will still be able to attend.
But some venues are at risk and the tournament will have to be condensed to ensure less travelling.
Places such as Baku in Azerbaijan – now caught in a conflict with Armenia – plus St Petersburg in Russia will be among the first to be dropped.
Bilbao in Spain struggled to sell tickets so would also be in the firing line.
Uefa know they can complete a tournament in one country, with teams staying in bubbles.
Further meetings are due over the next few months.
