Commenting on the announcement, Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport Shane Ross said: "I am delighted to welcome today's announcement of Dublin's match days for EURO 2020. This tournament is one of the most watched and supported events in world sport after the World Cup and the Olympics. Irish supporters are known for generating a great atmosphere wherever they travel and this tournament gives Irish supporters a chance to extend our unique welcome to up to 160,000 supporters who could travel here in June 2020."

FAI CEO John Delaney believes the four games will be as great way to promote Irish football and the country with the world's media watching on:

It is great to have the dates confirmed as we continue with our preparations for what will be the biggest international sporting event yet to be staged in Ireland.

Being able to host four games at EURO 2020 allows us to showcase Irish football, Aviva Stadium, the city of Dublin, and the country as a whole. It is an exciting time and I'm sure that football supporters from all over Europe will be looking forward to visiting Dublin in June 2020.

Following the qualification games, which take place in 2019, the draw for the finals itself will be held in December 2019 when match times of the Dublin games will be confirmed.
