Uefa is likely to name the UK and Ireland as hosts of Euro 2028 on Tuesday.

The United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland will be named as hosts of the 2028 European Championships during a Uefa meeting in Switzerland on Tuesday.

Following Turkey’s withdrawal from the process last week, the five-nation proposal is now going unchallenged.

Turkey and Italy united their Euro 2032 bids in July and are poised to be confirmed as joint hosts of that event.

Both proposals are running unopposed but must still be approved by Uefa.

“These are exciting times, and we have a very compelling Euro 2028 proposal for Uefa,” the five national associations of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and the Republic of Ireland stated in a joint statement last week.

“Our bid will be groundbreaking for the men’s Euros and will deliver lasting legacies across the whole of the UK and Ireland.”

The 2028 tournament will be contested at ten different venues, including Glasgow’s Hampden Park, Cardiff’s Principality Stadium, Dublin’s Aviva Stadium, and London’s Wembley Stadium.

Casement Park in Belfast and Everton’s Bramley-Moore Dock, both of which are still under development, are also included in the application.
