Under the second scenario, the opening match would not have been played in Brussels and under the third, the press centre would not have been located in the capital.
Under the least optimistic scenario, Brussels would not have hosted the opening match or the press centre, but four matches would have been played there. This would have earned the capital about 100.3 million euros.
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.
