Football's coming home! UK & Republic of Ireland.

In a significant turn of events, the Turkish FA has formally withdrawn its bid to host Euro 2028, shifting its focus towards co-hosting the tournament with Italy in 2032. This joint proposal, initially announced in July, has now received UEFA’s approval.

With Turkey’s exit from the 2028 bidding process, the UK and Republic of Ireland’s bid stands unopposed. While Wembley Stadium played host to the semi-finals and final of the rescheduled 2020 European Championship, it’s worth noting that the UK has not had the opportunity to host an entire major tournament since 1996.

Both bids will be subject to official approval during a forthcoming meeting of UEFA’s executive committee on Tuesday. A statement released by UEFA emphasized the importance of the presentations during this meeting, underscoring the significance of a thorough consideration of the bid submissions before a final decision is reached.
