And finally… Glasgow’s ‘Squinty Bridge’ inspires Euro 2020 logo

Euro 2020 GlasgowThe logo to be used when Glasgow hosts a selection of games for the Euro 2020 football tournament was launched today featuring the city’s famous ‘Squinty Bridge’.

Landmark bridges across Europe are being used as a theme for each of the tournament’s host cities with the Clyde Arc forming the basis of Glasgow as a host.

Glasgow is one of 13 cities picked to host matches at the tournament, with three group stage games and one last 16 clash taking place at Hampden.

Wembley Stadium in London was chosen to host the semi-finals and final.

Dublin (Ireland) Munich (Germany), Baku (Azerbaijan), Rome (Italy), St Petersburg (Russia), Bilbao (Spain), Bucharest (Romania), Brussels (Belgium), Budapest (Hungary), Copenhagen (Denmark) and Amsterdam (Netherlands) are the other cities that will host games.

Speaking today as Glasgow’s Euro 2020 logo was unveiled, Scottish Football Association (SFA) chief Stewart Regan insisted the city is the perfect venue for the Championships.

He said: “The history and magic of European football is inextricably linked to Scotland, Glasgow and Hampden Park.

“As a Euro 2020 host venue, Hampden Park will welcome new heroes and inspire a new generation.

“Euro 2020 presents Scottish football with a catalyst to help create the next chapter in the illustrious history of our beautiful game.

“People make Glasgow. I firmly believe Glasgow will make Euro 2020.”
