The Latvian national football team currently has no stadiums meeting UEFA requirements


The Latvian national football team could be forced to play its Euro 2016 games in Tallinn as the nation currently has no stadiums meeting UEFA requirements.

Necessary reconstruction works at the Riga Skonto stadium would cost 300,000 euros, but it would make more financial sense to hold the games at the A. Le Coq Stadium in Tallinn, some 300 kilometers from Riga, reported the Telegraph

Latvia will face the Netherlands, who had lost their perfect record in the previous qualifiers in Tallinn last year, the Czech Republic, Turkey, Iceland and Kazakhstan.

Estonia has been drawn against England, Switzerland, Slovenia, Lithuania and San Marino.
