Belgium may be in trouble having their stadium ready for Euro 2020.
Not sure if it is a new one or a renovation of the Brussels Baudioun.

Saw an article that suggested Millenium Stadium in Cardiff may be asked to fill the gap.

P.s. Couldn't find a Euro 2020 thread, looked thru 20 pages.
YBIG "search" has never worked for me.

No, it's meant to be a brand new 60k "Eurostadium", not the 50k King Baudouin Stadium (i.e. the re-built Heysel).

Seems Anderlecht don't want to use the new stadium and the local authorities are getting "cold feet":

Or some of the French Euro2016 stadia (above article).

If NI were involved, I'd be happy with either (so long as we weren't playing the Welsh in Cardiff).

Based on the cities selected, the "pairs" for group matches should be as follows:

St Petersburg - Baku (Baku is a disaster no matter who it is paired with)
Munich - Rome
Amsterdam - Copenhagen
Glasgow - Dublin
Budapest - Bucharest
and
Bilbao - Brussels

That being the case, Bilbao should be paired with somewhere closer to there, maybe Bordeaux. That would be a great base for a group.

There are other potential pairs, like Brussels - Amsterdam, Copenhagen - Munich and Rome - Bilbao, but no matter which you cut it, some of the pairs are a pain in the arse.

Guaranteed 3 home games for us should we qualify so because there is no chance of Scotland making it.

I wonder would FAI season ticket holders for 19/20 season given first option any games in Dublin?

No, the tickets would be handled in the same was as any tournament - FAI would have no control over ticketing outside of the allocation they would receive if we are taking part in a game.

So it would be public tickets sold via UEFA site for any non FA tickets

Both participating FAs would get an allocation, there would be a public ballot and then tickets to sponsors etc.

Anyone think it will be a disaster ? Looking forward to the concept of visiting the other cities following Ireland but I think it could end up being expensive with airlines shafting people on shortish notice for flights

So the same as all previous tournaments so.

I remember that being the worst part about France not knowing until pretty much just before kickoff where we'd be if I remember correctly we could have played in Lyon or Toulouse.

I think that the group stage will be fine as that will be set but going forward depending on other results I'd agree it could well cause a bit of a shafting especially for countries like ourselves not linked via land.

Purely football-wise, there are far worse cities than Baku to base yourself - NI fans had a great time there earlier in the month.

And having been to St. Peterburg (though not for a match), I liked it too.

Anyhow, I've just checked and it seems AZAL (low cost subsidiary of Azerbaijan Airlines) have non-stop flights between the two cities. It's around 4 hours, but they don't look to be too expensive. Baku is cheap, too.

The other host city with non-stop flights to Baku is Budapest (v.cheap with Wizzair). London too, obviously.

Tbh, I'd even take that, too, if need be - the Wizzair flights out to Baku are overnight, so if nothing else it saves you a hotel bed.

According to UEFA, "The twelve venues hosting group stage matches will be divided into six pairs, with each pair hosting one group. UEFA will draw up five or six lists of pairings, taking into account of sporting strength (assuming all host teams qualify), geography, and security/political constraints, and one list of pairings will be selected by draw in November/December 2017"

I believe I have read that if we qualify then we would have 2 games in Dublin and 1 at the other group location.

We have 2 guaranteed if we qualify and 3 if the country we are paired with doesn't qualify.  If both countries qualify then it is not clear to me who will have home advantage.  It may be the highest ranked or it may be a draw.

I'd highly recommend Baku as a place to visit.

Assuming we got paired with Scotland, I presume if we both qualified they'd arrange the draw so we couldn't be in the same group. Then we'd have 2 games in the Aviva, and one in Hamden. Scots would have 2 in Hamden and 1 in Aviva. 

That's just how I understood it to work
