UK & Ireland confirmed as Euro 2028 hosts

The hosts of Euro 2028 have been confirmed on Tuesday, October 10.

The UK and Republic of Ireland have been announced as hosts of the 2028 European Championships at a Uefa meeting in Switzerland on Tuesday.

The five-nation bid ran unopposed after Turkey withdrew from the process last week. Turkey merged their Euro 2032 bid with Italy in July and are set to be confirmed as joint hosts for that tournament, leaving the UK and Ireland to take Euro 2028.

Matches at the 2028 tournament are set to be held at 10 different grounds, including Glasgow’s Hampden Park, Cardiff’s Principality Stadium, Dublin’s Aviva Stadium and Wembley in London. Wembley would be expected to host the final in 2028, despite the issues at the stadium during the Euro 2020 final between England and Italy.

Belfast’s Casement Park and Everton’s Bramley-Moore Dock, the former unbuilt while the latter is still under construction, are also expected to host games.

This is the first time the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and Wales have hosted a major tournament. England, meanwhile, were one of the 11 countries to host Euro 2020 along with Scotland, as well as being the sole hosts of the 1966 World Cup and Euro 96.

Before hosting Euro 2028, England have their eyes set on redemption at Euro 2024. The Three Lions reached the final of Euro 2020 before losing to Italy and are now second favourites to win the upcoming competition. Back England to win Euro 2024 at 9/2 with bet365.
