No, "happen" does not fit in this sentence.

Hi Jaye I am a bit confused LenaKoutis asked "This championship game will happen in France. ?" You replied "Yes, that is one of the alternatives."

Have I got the wrong end of the stick

Wow, that is a huge error on my part. "Happen" is not correct and was not even two years ago when I sent that answer. I can only imagine that I was concentrating on the use of "championship game" as a substitute for "cup". I'll delete my reply.

Many thanks, Jon for catching that and informing me. I will delete it now.

We don't use "happen" with "games/matches etc" We say "take place/be held"

Hi! Should "This cup is going to take place in France" be accepted?
