The Bohemian and Moravian Football Association has formally submitted an offer to host the European under-21 championships in 2013. The Czech bid lines up against competing offers from England, Bulgaria, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Ireland and Wales. European football’s governing body, UEFA, will make its choice of country in December at a meeting of its operating committee in Prague. The Czech association will now convene a working group to select four stadiums that could host the championships. The country already meets one basic demand for hosting the event with two Prague grounds having capacity of more than 20,000.
