The Czech football association has not given up on the idea of co-hosting the 2020 European Championships in spite of a rebuff from the government last week. The government refused to back plans for a 33,000 capacity stadium to be built at Prague’s Strahov site. The association is now looking at the fall back option of increasing the capacity of Slavia Prague’s modern Eden venue. Slavia’s ground has seated capacity for just under 21,000. The problem is that European football’s governing body UEFA has set a 30,000 minimum capacity for grounds that would host European Championship games. The Czech FA has to submit its final application by April 25.
