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

Uefa has declared that the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland will host the 2028 European Championship.

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.

The offer is understood to propose that Cardiff’s Principality Stadium host the opening match of the 2028 tournament, with the final held at London’s Wembley Stadium.

“As a Welshman, I would love for Cardiff to host the first match,” said former Wales captain Gareth Bale, who was in Nyon for the presentation.

“We have the stadium and infrastructure for it.
