Background

UEFA awarded The 1980 European Championship tournament, the sixth staging of the UEFA European Championships, to Italy on 12 November 1977.

On 17 October 1977, England, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Switzerland and West Germany had all expressed an interest in hosting the tournament. However, two days later, the Organizing Committee decided to assign the hosting to England or Italy, favouring the Italians as England had hosted the World Cup only eleven years previously.
