The Stadium:
The stadium has a large capacity but it only partly
meets UEFA’s requirements in terms of accessibility, as
it lacks parking areas close by.

Accommodation
The hotel capacity in Cardiff is small and would only
allow the city to accommodate a limited number of
fans and key UEFA target groups. Alternative
accommodation such as guest houses, apartment
villages and university residencies would have to be
used and the hotel accommodation radius would
need to be extended to neighbouring cities.
If Bayscape was built then this would alleviate the
problem.
The number of rooms secured for key UEFA target
groups just about meets the bid targets and covers
part of UEFA’s requirements.

Language:
The language spoken here is English, although many
insist that everything is translated into Welsh, including
the referees instructions, this would cause confusion.

In summary we'll give it to London as our wives like the
shopping and the night-life there!!




Maybe not! :-(

We find out today if the bid has been successful -

The word is that if Wembley gets the final the Cardiff bid is likely to be successful. Lets hope so. I've expressed doubts about the benefits of hosting these type of events but the cumulative effect of hosting a number of high profile events could be a game changer. In terms of popularity football beats every other sport by some margin and having a few games for EURO 2020, will be huge.

We haven't got anything.

http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/football/29251585

Wembley has the final while Glasgow (Hampden Park) and Dublin (Aviva) have been given last 16 matches and 3 group matches.

Other than that, directly from the above link :

The quarter-finals and three group matches will be held in Munich (Germany), Baku (Azerbaijan), Rome (Italy) and St Petersburg (Russia).

The other host cities, which will hold three group games and a last 16 game, are Copenhagen (Denmark), Bucharest (Romania), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Bilbao (Spain), Budapest (Hungary) and Brussels (Belgium).

The thing with the above is that it's nothing to do with the size of stadiums, but clearly the cities lists are all much bigger than Cardiff, probably all with better airports and potentially more hotel rooms ?

Somewhat surprised by this. The Welsh bid was superior to the Scottish bid. I suspect issues surrounding the airport and hotel rooms may have been the key....

I suspect that it was always unlikely that they'd chose four venues in these islands. We probably lost out because of the hotel rooms issue.

You win some - you lose some. By and large for a city of our size we have a pretty good strike rate.

Seem to have a particular problem with UEFA - who like their 'VIPs' to be pampered with fancy hotels, and lots of hospitality space. I think Airport and Hotel is an issue - alongside the fact that Glasgow, London and Dublin also got something.
