six years of Euro 2028UEFA is close to deciding who will host the last edition of the tournament in the current decade. According to information from the “Telegraph”, the British press, the United Kingdom and Ireland should jointly host the national team competition.
The official application deadline ends on Wednesday, but so far no other country has indicated an interest in hosting the tournament, with the exception of the United Kingdom and Ireland. The UEFA Executive Committee is expected to announce the decision on April 7.
Initially, the United Kingdom was interested in hosting the 2030 World Cup, but was left out of the idea by Aleksander Ceferin, president of UEFA, who spearheaded Euro 2028. The continent is battling to host the aforementioned World Cup with Portugal and Spain, which have submitted an application.
If the UK and Ireland are confirmed to host Euro 2028, the tournament will host matches in five countries, something seen in the last edition of the competition, which had 11 places in 11 different countries. The countries of the United Kingdom are England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Maybe What is new in Euro 2028 is the increase in the number of participating teams. The tournament currently includes 24 teams divided into six groups, but the expectations are that the competition will consist of 32 teams, divided into eight groups.
The Euro 2024 edition will be held in Germany between June 14 and July 14. In all, ten German cities will host matches: Berlin, Cologne, Dortmund, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Gelsenkirchen, Hamburg, Leipzig, Munich and Stuttgart.
