"Due to the Eurostadium project's failure to meet the conditions imposed by the UEFA Executive Committee during its meeting of 20th September 2017, the four matches initially scheduled to be held in Brussels will now be allocated to Wembley Stadium, London following a vote by the committee", UEFA wrote in a statement on their website.
English soccer's national stadium, which was chosen in 2014 to host the final three games, now also has three group stage games and a round of 16 fixture.
Wembley was preferred to Cardiff and Stockholm, which were both among the original 19 candidate cities for the tournament and had also been named by UEFA as possible replacements for Brussels. They didn't expect a decision until January and they did not know whether that would be a yes or a no. Experts from [our] administration felt it was a high risk for UEFA to wait.
The building of a new Brussels stadium for the tournament had run into delays involving the applications for construction and environmental permits.
"A huge amount of work has gone into preparation for the tournament and we are making enormous progress in preparing the Aviva Stadium for when it becomes a focus for worldwide attention during this prestigious competition".
In Nyon, UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said the decision of UEFA's executive committee had been unanimous.
The first match of Euro 2020 will be hosted in Rome at the Stadio Olimpico, UEFA has confirmed.
Each host nation that qualifies will be guaranteed two home matches in the group stage.
We know what you're thinking, 'we've only qualified for the Euros three times ('88, '12, '16)' but the new 24 team format means it's now easier for Ireland to get through the group stages as we found out in Euro 2016. "Wales has never staged a Euro or World Cup Final and this was its one and only chance of doing so".
