Ukraine, Jun30: UEFA President Michel Platini says that the 2020 European Championship could be held in 12 or 13 cities across Europe.





Speaking on the eve of Sunday's Euro 2012 final, Platini says “we could either have one country with 12 host cities or have it in 12 or 13 cities all over Europe.”

The head of European football's ruling body also says a decision on the idea will be taken in December or January.

Platini said “it's an idea I feel really passionate about” and that “it will be a lot easier from a financial perspective.”

It could mean a major change for a competition that is held every four years, spread across one or two countries. Euro 2012 is being hosted by eight cities in Poland and Ukraine, with each country staging matches in four cities.
