The last time Wembley staged a European Championship final was in 1996. Thirteen cities will be chosen across Europe when UEFA's executive committee makes its decision on 25 September 2014.

UEFA president Michel Platini has said that the tournament being hosted in several nations is a 'romantic' one-off idea to celebrate the '60th birthday' of the European Championship, which was first held in 1960.

A UEFA spokesman told a news conference: "The matches will be split into 13 packages - 12 cities who will have three group stage matches and one knock-out round match, and one city will host the two semi-finals and final.

"There will be only one venue per country and it means the semi-finals and the final will be played in the same venue."

As with the 2016 event, the finals of which will be held in France, the tournament will have a larger format, expanding from 31 matches featuring 16 nations to 51 featuring 24.

The full list of countries (and cities) bidding to host matches at Euro 2022 is: Armenia (Yerevan), Azerbaijan (Baku), Belarus (Minsk), Belgium (Brussels), Bulgaria (Sofia), Croatia (Zagreb), Czech Republic (Prague), Denmark (Copenhagen), England (London), Finland (Helsinki), France (Lyon), Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (Skopje), Germany (Munich), Greece (Athens), Hungary (Budapest), Israel (Jerusalem), Italy (Rome and Milan), Kazakhstan (Astana), Netherlands (Amsterdam), Poland (Warsaw and Chorzow), Portugal (Lisbon and Porto), Republic of Ireland (Dublin), Romania (Bucharest), Russia (St Petersburg), Scotland (Glasgow), Serbia (Belgrade), Spain (Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao and Valencia), Sweden (Solna), Switzerland (Basel), Turkey (Istanbul), Ukraine (Kyiv and Donetsk) and Wales (Cardiff).
