Which stadiums have been selected as part of the UK and Ireland’s bid to host Euro 2028?
UEFA’s executive committee will make a decision on hosting for Euro 2028 next year.
The joint bid between the UK and Ireland to host Euro 2028 has been formally submitted to UEFA at a preliminary level.
Matches would take place in England at Wembley, Villa Park, Everton Stadium, London Stadium, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Wembley, Etihad Stadium, St James’ Park, Stadium of Light, Old Trafford, in Dublin at the Aviva Stadium and Croke Park, in Belfast at Casement Park, in Glasgow at Hampden Park and at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium. A final list of 10 stadiums will be submitted to UEFA in April 2023.
“We are delighted that Government Partners of the UK, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and officials in Northern Ireland, support this bid,” a joint statement from the five bidding associations read.
“Together, we believe we can deliver a world-class tournament, and that hosting Euro 2028 will achieve a strong and sustainable legacy for football and wider society, helping to drive economic growth in local communities.
“Working with UEFA, our plan is to host a tournament that will be a catalyst for transformational grassroots football development - with a promise to share legacy initiatives with European National Associations to accelerate growth across the continent.
“The UK and Ireland’s track record of hosting successful major sporting events over many decades means we have the expertise and experience to take this world-class tournament to new heights.”
The UK and Ireland had initially looked at the possibility of bidding for the 2030 World Cup, but later turned their attention to the Euros two years earlier.
When will a decision be made on Euro 2028?
UEFA’s executive committee will make a decision on hosting for Euro 2028 and Euro 2032 in September 2023. The bid faces competition from Turkey.
