Platini's 2020 vision for Europe

A collage of games across the whole continent.
He's been at it again! The Europa League will descend into history with the Champions League set to be doubled to 64 clubs, but now attention's turned to an austerity version of the Euros.

Michel Platini's radical plans for the future now extend to a complete revamp of the European Championship.

No longer will the Euros be camped in one or two countries. From 2020, the UEFA President wants to play the games across the whole of Europe.

But why is he making such a huge change to the way tournament football's been played? Even the fledgeling World Cups of the 1930's were played in one nation.
