According to Philipp Lahm, there are currently no plans to hold the pan-European football championship in 2021 only in Germany due to the corona pandemic. “This is absolutely not a scenario at the moment, I can say that very clearly,” said the former national team captain and tournament director of the 2024 European Championship Editorial network Germany.
What will happen in the coming months “of course nobody can predict”, said Lahm (37): “But at the moment there is absolutely no question that the tournament will only take place in Germany.”
Holding the European Championship in twelve countries “was and remains a good idea,” said Lahm: “If the plans have to be adjusted due to the corona pandemic, these decisions are no longer with UEFA, but one level above: with politics. But currently it is still the case that the EM will take place in twelve cities. “
