Portugal has officially withdrawn from staging a bid to be a hosting city in the Euro 2020, which will be played in up to 13 countries.

Portugal pulls out of bidding for Euro 2020


The news was confirmed yesterday when Lisbon Town Hall followed the position taken by Oporto to not launch a bid to become a host city.
