Earnings for the entire country could have ranged between 130.7 million and 160.8 million euros – 22.6 million to 28.3 million for Flanders and 7.7 million to 9.6 million for Wallonia, according to Jérôme’s estimates.
The student also calculated that Euro 2020 would have enabled the creation of between 763 and 921 jobs in Brussels during the event.
