The UK government is reportedly offering to host UEFA Euro 2020 this summer amid its successful coronavirus vaccine rollout, according to The Times.

Wembley is due to host both the Euro 2020 final and semi-finals but organisers UEFA were forced to scrap their plans to hold the rest of the matches in 12 separate countries.

The Times claimed Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden has told UEFA fans in Britain will be allowed to return to stadiums before the rest of Europe.

However, Portugal is currently on the UK’s ‘red-list’ of countries so the government must find a way to exempt their national squad, the current holders of the European Championship, from restrictions.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin was reportedly in favour of a single host.

A final decision on the tournament is set to be made in March.
