Euro 2028: UK and Ireland Bid to Host Tournament set for Approval by UEFA


The UK and Ireland’s bid to host Euro 2028 is poised to get the formal seal of approval today.

The five-nation proposal is expected to be approved by the UEFA executive council because there are no objections following Turkey’s withdrawal last week to concentrate on its joint candidacy with Italy for Euro 2032.

The event will take place in June and July of 2028, precisely seven years after Scotland and England each hosted a game during the rescheduled tournament that traveled throughout Europe.

A tournament’s host nation would typically receive a spot in the finals, but because there are so many participating nations in Euro 2020, it’s likely that all five will need to qualify.

The UK-Ireland bid, which was filed in April, featured ten stadiums. With one each from Scotland, Wales, the Republic of Ireland, and Northern Ireland, there are six in England.

UK & Ireland host stadiums

  • Wembley Stadium (London)
  • Principality Stadium (Cardiff)
  • Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London)
  • Etihad Stadium (Manchester)
  • Everton Stadium (Liverpool)
  • St James’ Park (Newcastle)
  • Villa Park (Birmingham)
  • Hampden Park (Glasgow)
  • Aviva Stadium (Dublin)
  • Casement Park (Belfast)
