Michel Platini and UEFA leaning towards multi-city Euro 2020

Platini has indicated that the 60th anniversary of the competition could involve "12 or 13 cities across Europe", making organisation easier and alleviating cost and infrastructure problems, amidst the financial crisis across the continent.
