England ‘could stage Euro 2020 victory party at Wembley in September’ if Three Lions win trophy


ENGLAND could stage a Euro 2020 victory party at Wembley in September if the Three Lions win the tournament, according to reports.

Southgate’s men have the whole of the country believing they can finally bring football home and end the 55-year wait for glory.

But even if they do go all the way and become the first England team since 1966 to win a tournament, they are unlikely to hold an immediate victory parade.

According to The Times, The FA have still not “discussed the matter in detail” yet.

However, the report states they “will have to start formulating plans of how to recognise the achievement” should they go all the way.

An open-top bus tour would seem to be the most-likely option in normal circumstances.

But Covid-19 restrictions make atour through London a non-starter.

Now it is thought that an alternative option “could be staging a ticketed event at Wembley” or somewhere else in the capital, according to The Telegraph.

And that fans would need to enter a ballot to gain admission to it.

According to sources within the FA have suggested that if England’s men do bring it home, an open-top parade could take place on July 19, when restrictions are lifted.

And it is thought a ticketed celebration would take place around England’s next home game at Wembley – currently scheduled for September 5.

The England rugby union side received a welcome home by hundreds of thousands of fans when they held a victory parade after winning the World Cup in 2003.

And there were also similar scenes after England’s cricketers won the Ashes in 2005 and when the Three Lions got to the World Cup semi-finals in 1990.

But Liverpool were denied a victory parade after ending a 30-year wait and winning the Premier League title in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
