The European football governing body has revealed the host nations for the Euro 2028 and Euro 2032 championships.
In a historic decision, the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland have been selected as joint hosts for the UEFA European Championship in 2028.
UEFA officially made the announcement during a presentation in Nyon, Switzerland. The joint bid ran unopposed after Turkey withdrew its bid.
Turkey will instead co-host the 2032 edition of the competition alongside Italy.
This will mark the second time that England has hosted a European tournament. The country had been the sole host of the 1996 championship.
In Euro 2020, Glasgow’s Hampden Park and London’s Wembley Stadium were some of the venues for the tournament. The final and semi-finals both took place in London.
For Euro 2028, Cardiff’s Principality Stadium has been put forward to host the opening match.
The tournament will showcase footballing talent at 10 different grounds. These include Dublin’s Aviva Stadium, Glasgow’s Hampden Park, and Belfast’s Casement Park.
Before then, attention will turn to Euro 2024 for next summer. Germany will host the tournament.
UK & Ireland
