Russia hosted its first-ever FIFA World Cup in 2018, which commences off in Moscow with a remarkable opening show at Luzhniki Stadium on the evening of June 14 and concluded with a thrilling final match where France overpowered Croatia to win the World Cup Trophy.

“I believe that we should expect again thousands Indian fans for the European Championship matches, which will be played in Saint Petersburg as well,” Latypov said.

He said that although cricket “is the sport number one” in India, there is also plenty of football fans in the country. “I have surfed on purpose through television sports channels in India,” Latypov said. “Eight out of ten sports channels were broadcasting cricket games, one was broadcasting field hockey, but one was broadcasting football.”

The matches of the 2020 Euro Cup will be held at stadiums in 12 different cities across Europe, namely in London (England), Munich (Germany), Rome (Italy), Baku (Azerbaijan), Saint Petersburg (Russia), Bucharest (Romania), Amsterdam (The Netherlands), Dublin (Ireland), Bilbao (Spain), Budapest (Hungary), Glasgow (Scotland) and Copenhagen (Denmark).
