EURO 2020: SCOTLAND VS ENGLAND VENUE COULD BE DECIDED BY COIN TOSS

Scotland and England might have to rely on a coin toss to determine the venue for their clash at the forthcoming Euro 2020, as per reports. Both sides would be in the same group if they both qualify.

The new tournament guidelines would see both sides meet a venue that could be determined by a coin toss. England would definitely want the game at Wembley for obvious reasons while the Scots would want it at Hampden.

Euro 2020 is set to be hosted by 12 cities across Europe as a romantic one-off event in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the European Championship. The 16th UEFA European Championship will see 24 teams battle it out for the title. No team would get automatic slot on the basis of being host nations with the tournament schedule released last month.

Scotland are gunning to reach their first European Championships for the first time since 1996. If that happens, they would play two group games at Hampden and the other two at Wembley. If both sides qualify, then they would be in the same group. If that happens, then according to the tournament guidance info, a coin toss would determine where the fixture would hold.

Wembley would be hosting seven games: the group stage, Round of 16, semis and final the most of any of the cities. The Krestovsky Stadium in Saint Petersburg one of the 2018 World Cup venues will be hosting Euro 2020 group stage and quarter finals, same with the Olympic Stadium, Baku (Azerbaijan), Allianz Arena (Munich), and Stadio Olympico (Rome).
