The UK and Ireland have submitted their final bid to jointly host Euro 2028.
The four home nations’ football associations and the Football Association of Ireland have pledged in the bid to provide “Football for all, Football for good. Football for the future.”
They have also revealed the final list of stadiums they are proposing to host matches, with some notable grounds absent from the list.
The 10 proposed grounds are:
• Wembley Stadium – London
• National Stadium of Wales – Cardiff
• Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – London
• City of Manchester Stadium – Manchester
• Everton Stadium – Liverpool
• St James’ Park – Newcastle
• Villa Park – Birmingham
• Hampden Park – Glasgow
• Dublin Arena – Dublin
• Casement Park – Belfast
Old Trafford in Manchester, Croke Park in Dublin, the Stadium of Light in Sunderland, and London Stadium, which were on the original longer list, all failed to make the final cut.
The bid says: “The UK and Ireland share a proud reputation as world-leading event destinations which have successfully staged some of the biggest global sporting tournaments – backed by strong government support.
“This includes the recent record-breaking UEFA Women’s EURO 2022.
“We are delighted that our government partners are fully committed to hosting UEFA EURO 2028.
“They have signed the relevant tournament guarantees and will ensure the event is fully supported.
“This will create a welcoming, exciting and safe football experience that players and fans will enjoy in every city and every game.”
The UK and Ireland’s rival bid is from Turkey, the only other nation that has confirmed interest in hosting the tournament.
Russia had also expressed an interest in hosting, but UEFA declared the bid ineligible over the war in Ukraine.
UEFA is expected to make a final decision on where the tournament will be held in September.
