Europa League FinalThe FAI will lodge its formal bid today to be a host of the 2020 UEFA European Championship Finals.

The format will be based across multiple cities with different packages on offer.  Ireland will bid to host three matches in the group stage and one from the second round.

It is believed that 32 cities have expressed an interest in being part of the tournament and there are 13 different packages available including one to host the two semi finals and the final.

Ireland’s prospects are believed to be strong having successfully hosted the Europa League Final in 2011.

A decision on the outcome of the winning bids is expected as early as September of this year.

Ian Rush was in Dublin yesterday to promote the high profile post season friendly between Liverpool and Shamrock Rovers at the Aviva Stadium on May 14th.  Expectations are high that the reds will travel with the Premier League Trophy.  As a thank you for support over the last two years, Sport for Business and the FAI are pleased to be hosting a box at the game for business leaders who support Liverpool and a member of their family.
