Yes, it’s coming home!
As per few reports, the postponed Euro 2021 is likely to be hosted solely by England.
As the days are nearing Euro 2021, various reports are being leaked about how and where the Euro will be conducted. The rising fear of Coronavirus wave 2 has put the current plans for a Europe-wide tournament in danger. So as per BeIN Sports correspondent Tancredi Palmeri, England is ‘very likely’ to be the sole host of the Euro 2021 this June. The official decision is expected to be taken and announced before mid-April.
Euro2021 very likely to be played solely in England as UEFA are opting for the one hosting country format and England is the one they believe being in best position to do so.
Decision expected to be taken within mid-April

The Euro 2021 will mark the 60 year anniversary of the European Championships. The original plans to conduct the tournament across the 12 nations look unlikely as it includes travel.
In the last many days, it’s unclear whether the competition will be held or not. What has been clear is if Euros go ahead as per schedule, then UEFA needs to roll back and organize in the old traditional ways. That means Euro will be hosted by a single nation.
London’s Wembley is scheduled to host the final and several other matches. The coronavirus vaccine is being rolled out globally. The levels of vaccination are different in each country and it is believed that it can cause travel issues.
The UK has currently vaccinated more than 18 million people so far in the first round of vaccination. This is more than any other European country.
The positive vaccination drive has allowed the British government to lay out a ‘road plan’ for normal life post covid. As per the plan, football fans will be able to return to the stadium numbers up to 10,000 from May. It is expected that entire restrictions will be lifted up in June and we might see Euro 2021 with full capacity spectators.
