UEFA receives three preliminary bids to host Euro tournaments in 2028 and 2032

EURO 2020

Italy and Turkey, as well as the UK and Ireland, have all bid to host Euro 2028 and 2032.

UEFA confirmed it received three preliminary bid dossiers to host Euro 2028 and 2032 before Wednesday’s deadline.

A joint bid by the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland for the 2028 tournament was submitted, while Turkey also threw their hat in the ring, having never hosted a major tournament.

The Football Associations of England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland submitted the proposal and promised to stage an “unrivalled” tournament.

The offer from England’s FA comes after much criticism for its handling of fan disorder at the Euro 2020 final at Wembley Stadium, with an independent review describing it as a “day of national shame”.

Turkey has also bid for the 2032 edition, as has Italy, which has not been chosen as the sole host of a major tournament since the 1990 World Cup.

The deadline for submission of final dossiers is 12 April 2023, before the hosts are selected in the European autumn of that year.
