Glasgow will remain as a host city for next year’s rescheduled Euro 2020.

Reports in German media had suggested UEFA were considering reducing the number of cities hosting tournament fixtures from 12.

Glasgow was said to be amongst the places at risk of missing out.

But the local organising structure for the city has confirmed Hampden will remain a venue for four matches – three group games and a last-16 tie – in the 2021 competition.
