Euro 2028: Uefa appoints the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland as tournament hosts.

The joint proposal was unopposed after Turkey withdrew to concentrate on a bid for Euro 2032 with Italy, which was also confirmed during a meeting in Switzerland.

With Uefa’s approval, the United Kingdom and Ireland focused on Euro 2028 after abandoning plans to be Europe’s favoured candidate for the 2030 World Cup.

Euro 2020 games were held at Wembley Stadium in London and Hampden Park in Glasgow.

Noel Mooney, chief executive of the Football Association of Wales, stated that he would “like the national stadium of Wales to host the opening match,” but that the decision is “up to Uefa.”

“To bring the tournament to Wales is a special day for us,” added the Welshman. “We’re ecstatic. We’ve proposed a schedule of games, and we think Cardiff is an excellent choice for the opener.

“We hope by hosting, and having these big matches in Cardiff, we can bring Wales to the world in a way it hasn’t been before.”

Former Wales captain Gareth Bale, who was there at the presentation in Nyon, added, “As a Welshman, I would love for Cardiff to host the first match.” We have the stadium and the infrastructure.”

A major football tournament has never been held in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, or Wales.


Euro 2028 matches will be contested at ten different venues, including Wembley Stadium, Hampden Park, Cardiff’s Principality Stadium, and Dublin’s Aviva Stadium. Casement Park in Belfast and Everton’s Bramley-Moore Dock stadium, both of which are still under development, were also included in the offer.

England, along with Scotland, was one of the 11 countries chosen to host Euro 2020, as well as the sole hosts of the 1966 World Cup and Euro ’96. England will also host the first-ever Women’s European Championship in 2022.
