Turkiye withdrew its bid to host Euro 2028

Turkiye has decided to withdraw its application to host Euro 2028, the Union of European Football Associations reports


In July, the football federations of Turkiye and Italy submitted a joint application to host the 2032 European Championship. UEFA confirmed its receipt to both associations, and the application will be sent for consideration to the UEFA Executive Committee. In this regard, Turkiye has decided not to fight for the right to host the European Championship.

As a result, the UK and the Republic of Ireland look set to host Euro 2028.

All candidates for the 2028 and 2032 tournaments must be approved at the UEFA Executive Committee, which will be held on October 10th in Nyon, Switzerland.
