The Belarusian Football Federation (BFF) has asked Europe's soccer governing body UEFA to select Minsk as one of the venues of the 2020 European championship.
The BFF has proposed a new 33,000-seat ground to be built in place of Traktar Stadium in Minsk as a possible venue for the tournament, according to the organization's press office.
The tournament, commonly referred to as Euro 2020, will be held in 13 cities, with the semi-finals and final played at the same stadium.
There will be no more than one venue per country and host countries will not qualify automatically.
