Georgia, Azerbaijan plan bid to host Euro



Georgia's president says his country plans to form a joint bid with neighboring Azerbaijan to co-host the 2020 European Championship.

President Mikhail Saakashvili made the announcement on Wednesday while addressing Azerbaijan's parliament.

Neither former Soviet nation has ever qualified for a major international football competition since gaining independence in 1991.

Uefa is likely to invite bids to host Euro 2020 early next year with a vote scheduled for May 2014.

Turkey has already expressed interest in hosting the competition.

Ukraine and Poland are co-hosting Euro 2012, which starts on June 8 with Poland playing Greece in Warsaw.
