The dates have been set for the Euro 2020 playoff semi-finals and final.

Northern Ireland take on Bosnia-Herzegovina in their semi, with the Republic of Ireland facing Slovakia.

It was announced by UEFA on Wednesday that the semi-finals will take place on October 8, with the final set for November 12.

Northern Ireland's semi-final - set to be played in Zenica - was originally scheduled for March and then moved forward to June.

Both times it was suspended due to the unfolding coronavirus pandemic.

Meanwhile, the Republic of Ireland will take on Slovakia on the same dates.

Stephen Kenny's side will travel to Bratisava on that date.

Should either Northern Ireland or the Republic progress, they will join a group featuring Spain, Poland and Sweden in the Euro finals.

Elsewhere, Scotland host Israel at Hampden and, should they win, they would travel to face Norway or Serbia in early November with a place at the finals at stake.

UEFA have postponed the Euro 2020 finals until next summer, with the tournament now taking place from June 11 to July 11, 2021.

Meanwhile, it has also been confirmed the 2021 Super Cup will still be played in Belfast.

And the 2019/20 Euro Under-19 Championships are set to be staged in Northern Ireland over two periods.

There will be a group stage with two groups of four teams from October 8-14 with group winners and runners-up qualifying for finals between November 9-18.
