    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 for one have every intention of hitting a couple of host cities and watching some games...and travelling. Love the idea of many countries hosting. More options
