NYON, Switzerland (AFP) - European football's governing body Union of European Football Associations (Eufa) on Friday confirmed that the 2020 European Championship will be staged in 13 different cities across the continent.

Uefa's executive committee rubber-stamped the proposals, which were first made public last month, for the 2020 finals to be the first "Euro for Europe".

Previous tournaments have been held in one country or, as was the case at Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine, joint-hosted by two neighbouring countries.

For 2020, Uefa have stipulated that there will be a maximum of one venue per country, and added that the two semi-finals and the final will all be held in the same stadium.
