NYON, Switzerland (Reuters) - Brussels has lost the right to stage matches at Euro 2020 following delays in the development of a new stadium, UEFA said on Thursday.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said that the four matches due to be staged in Brussels would be played at London's Wembley stadium instead, in addition to the two semi-finals and final already schedule to be played there.

The 2020 tournament is the first to be played under a new format with group games spread across several countries.
