I could be wrong but I'm guessing that would be the sentiment of the vast majority attending the Euros, of all fans btw not just the Irish contingent. Am I wrong in saying that until recently, almost all tournaments in recent times had a team play 2 group matches in 1 city? Just makes the logistics of it all way easier for fans. Poznan in '12 we'd 2 group matches. New York '94 we'd 2 group matches.

But we will have 2 matches in one city if we qualify (Dublin) and then one in north Spain 2 hour flight.

In USA we had 2 in New Jersey and one in Orlando which is a 3 hour flight.

This tournament is actually the most accessible to the average fan logistically....on paper.
It's going to a nightmare to get tickets for due to the accessibility. Some of the more regular fans will be getting shafted left right and centre by fair weather fans who know the right people

Ah the next tournament is a stand alone tournament (I would hope), and I wouldn't compare the travelling set up to anything that has gone before. The setup of 2 games in 1 city in the group stage is easily the most accessible for all fans imo. Security issues may be why they've changed that up, but I think they've lessened the tournament by it. The 2020 format is just comical tbh, no host is a farce. Seems like a non event almost.

These are the lengths they went to keep it away from turkey.

It gives countries that would never be able to host a tournament on their own a chance to host tournament games. I don’t understand the negativity from you about it. Two group games in Dublin for us if we qualify. It should be brilliant.

Just having a look at the format for the next European Nations Cup. 

Each qualified host nation will be guaranteed a minimum of two games at home in the finals.

That means England will be playing at least twice at the Empire Stadium, Wembley, London in Group D. 

The winner of Group D plays its Round of 16 game at the Dublin Arena, Dublin, Eire against the second placed team in Group F, which will include Germany. 

England supporters can be assured of a warm welcome and lots of local support in Dublin that night, especially given that it looks highly unlikely Eire will be involved in the tournament.

Just looking at some of the Euro2020 scheduling, I understand they can't call it the Aviva Stadium for sponsorship reasons, but sureley if they were looking for another name for it they'd just have used "Lansdowne Road" Confused

Was there any pushback in 2010 for the Europa League final? Just wondering if it was an FAI thing at the time to try to stop people using Lansdowne (think the Aviva deal justs started around 2010).

They called it "Dublin Arena" then as well.

You'd imagine it is up to the hosts to decide the name of their stadium. You'd also imagine that that really means Aviva get to decide and Aviva certainly wouldn't want it called "Lansdowne Road", for fear of it catching on. Presumably that's why it ends up with a sh*te name like "Dublin Arena".

Hell, the very fact we're having the conversation probably shows that it makes sense for Aviva to want it to be called something other than Lansdowne Road.

Yep, "Dublin Arena" for the same reasons as WHU are playing in the "London Stadium", or Spurs are waiting to move into the "Tottenham Hotspur Stadium", rather than WHL i.e. future sponsors don't want to make the same mistake eg as BT made with Boro.

At Middlesboro, the fans originally chose the name "Riverside" in a poll, so when BT tried calling it the "Cellnet Riverside Stadium" (later the "BT Cellnet Riverside Stadium"), they eventually had to give up when they realised that the Riverside bit had stuck, at the expense of "Cellnet".

It is now simply "The Riverside Stadium".

Well it looks like Dublin, Munich and Bilbao are out. What do we think will be the replacements? For Dublin, it will be somewhere close. I'm going to guess the Principality stadium. Would Windsor park be completely out of the question?

Late possiblity  is that Munich will keep the group games but give up the quarter final.

Hard to see how they can commit to it at this stage but I guess uefa will bend over backwards to have them involved.

Not surprised seeing France’s strength in depth at CB.
