UK & Ireland submit preliminary bid document to host UEFA EURO 2028
— FA (@FA) November 16, 2022
A final list of ten stadiums will be submitted to UEFA in April 2023 as consultations with cities and stadiums continue next year.
On April 7, 2023, the winner to host Euro 2028 is expected to be officially announced.
UEFA is expected to expand the tournament from 24 teams in Germany to 32 teams for 2028 at Euro 2024. However, according to UEFA’s co-hosting rules, none of the five host nations automatically qualify.
Russia has been barred from submitting a bid to host Euro 2028 and 2032 as part of a series of punitive measures stemming from its military action in Ukraine.
The Russian file was the main contender for Britain and Ireland’s file to host Euro 2028.
