UK & Ireland Remain Sole Bidders for Euro 2028 Following Turkey’s Withdrawal to Prioritize Euro 2032

In July, Turkey reached an agreement to consolidate their Euro 2032 bid with Italy, a move that has received official approval from the governing body Uefa. Italy had initially submitted a bid solely for the 2032 tournament, whereas Turkey had put forth bids for hosting both Euro 2028 and Euro 2032.

Both bids still need official approval by Uefa at a meeting of its executive committee on Tuesday.

“The presentations at that meeting will be an important part of the process which will take due consideration of the content of the bid submissions before reaching a decision,” said Uefa.

Turkey hosted June’s Champions League final between Manchester City and Inter Milan at Istanbul’s Ataturk Olympic Stadium, but a major international tournament has never been held in the country.

Reigning European champions Italy hosted the Euros in 1968 and 1980 and Rome’s Stadio Olimpico was also used as a venue at Euro 2020.

Back in April, a total of ten venues were chosen as part of the joint bid by the UK and Republic of Ireland. These venues encompass well-known locations such as Glasgow’s Hampden Park, Cardiff’s Principality Stadium, Dublin’s Aviva Stadium, and London’s Wembley Stadium.

Remarkably, the bid also includes two stadiums that have yet to be constructed: Belfast’s Casement Park and Everton’s Bramley-Moore Dock.
