Four stadiums in Bucharest will be renovated starting next year, so that Romania does not lose the right to host four football matches of the European Championship in 2020.
According to Digi24, the announcement was made by Vasile Dincu, Bucharest deputy mayor, and would target the stadiums Steaua, Dinamo, Rapid and the Arcul de Triumf rugby stadium.
“I can give you some data about the optimum agreed with the representatives of federations in terms of stadiums size, Steaua – about 30,000 seats, the Dinamo stadium – 25,000, Rapid Stadium – between15,000 and 18,000 and the rugby stadium – between 8,000 and 12,000 seats,” the deputy mayor said.
UEFA has submitted several conditions for Romania in order to be included on the list of countries that will host Euro 2020 matches. Four years from now Bucharest will have to be directly connected to Otopeni Airport by a subway line, to have more parking lots and a highway linking the western border to Bucharest.
