UEFA confirms UK, Ireland as Euro 2028 host


The UK and Ireland will host the 2028 European Championship, while Italy and Turkey will stage the 2032 edition of the tournament, UEFA announced on Tuesday.

By accepting a joint Italy-Turkey bid for Euro 2032 last week, and with Turkey withdrawing from the race for Euro 2028, the hosts for both tournaments had all but already been determined by European football’s governing body.

Turkey’s withdrawal from the 2028 race left England, Northern Ireland, Ireland, Scotland and Wales as the sole joint bidders for that tournament.

Both sets of bids, however, still needed final approval from UEFA’s executive committee that convened on Tuesday.

Italy won the most recent European Championships, defeating England on penalties at Wembley in 2021 with the competition having been delayed for a year by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Euro 2024 is set for Germany.
