SFA ready to host 2012 European Championship finals

The Scottish FA are willing to host Euro 2012 should Poland and Ukraine be stripped of the opportunity. The Polish football federation was suspended by Uefa on Monday for allegedly failing to address corruption.

Both countries were also told last week they must speed up their preparations for the event and meet several conditions.

"Our position is straightforward," said SFA chief executive Gordon Smith in The Scotsman.

"If, in the event of it being taken away from Poland and Ukraine, it was opened to bids, then we would seek to establish if a bid from us would be considered by UEFA.

"If the response was positive then we would undertake a feasibility study along with the Scottish government to decide if we would bid."
