Football fans will face “a challenge” when traveling between games at the continent-wide European Championship in 2020, UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin said on Thursday.

The tournament will be held in 13 cities across Europe to mark its 60th anniversary, ranging from the Irish capital of Dublin in the west to the Azerbaijani city of Baku in the east, ESPN reported.

“Of course, it’s a challenge if fans have to travel thousands and thousands and thousands of kilometers across Europe,” Ceferin said at a ceremony in the Russian host city of St. Petersburg. “It can be very interesting but it can be a big challenge even for a big organization such as UEFA. I think everything will be fine, I’m sure.”

UEFA will pair cities for the group stage to reduce travel distances for fans, though the exact system won’t be revealed until later.
