I'm not too into it. I would assume the economic benefit of hosting the tournament to a region or single country would outweigh the costs, something a potential host would consider prior to making a bid. I think having 45 countries hosting it would create a mess for scheduling, could create bias's in some teams randomly getting home field advantage, while other games drawing few fans - 2 small countries playing in an equally and uninterested small countries stadium. The idea of small countries building a "national stadium" for the opportunity to host 1 or 2 possible matches without knowing the quality of sides playing appears to be even more of a risk than preparing for the entire tournament.

But the thread title is still very much appropriate. :)

Just being efficient here and not trying to stack up on my new thread points. :rolleyes: :D

Buckfast wants us to stay in Bilbao as a base and just jet around the continent for matches. :cool:

Even if Scotland don't make it. ;)

I got 4 tickets at each of Copenhagen for June 29th, Glasgow on June 30th, and both semi-finals at Wembley on July 7th & 8th actually.

That said, and I'm absolutely gutted, I'll need to dump my Glasgow tickets though.
I'm heading to Croatia for a week's holiday with Buckfast after Copenhagen and before we go to London for the semis.
Nothing like fcuking off your own home town...
But it's too much of a hassle to go to Split after the Glasgow match the way our lodgings booking worked out - I'd be missing two days there.

We're going to Amsterdam first now, and hoping to get tickets there for the June 27th match using Viagogo or something.

If we didn't have tickets for the 30th we'd have taken Glasgow off your hands, 6 of us going, hoping to pick more tickets up in December, anyone know if tickets will be available through Canada Soccer?

Never heard of Viagogo, will check it out, I'm part of England Supporters Club so hoping for more tickets through them in December, no luck for us with semi final or final tickets in UEFA draw unfortunately.

Ha Ha - Viagogo was a bit dodgy but I was able to get tickets last time to two matches in France using them.
Its one of those fingers crossed kind of things and they assume NO responsibility for anything and they do NOT give any customer service whatsoever.
But it worked...

If anyone is interested in the tickets in Glasgow, feel free to PM me.
