UK and Ireland have submitted final bid to host Euro 2028 with the 10 shortlisted host stadiums also revealed.

Below are the list of host stadiums;

  • Wembley Stadium (London)
  • Principality Stadium (Cardiff)
  • Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London)
  • Etihad Stadium (Manchester)
  • Everton Stadium (Liverpool)
  • St James’ Park (Newcastle)
  • Villa Park (Birmingham)
  • Hampden Park (Glasgow)
  • Aviva Stadium (Dublin)
  • Casement Park (Belfast)

Both countries claim they are “committed to delivering a record-breaking tournament with more tickets than ever before to grow a more diverse and inclusive game”.

The slogan for the tournament they intend to use is: “Football for all. Football for good. Football for the future.”

Both countries have also placed sustainability and good governance practice as top priorities, with a proposed match schedule to reduce emissions and strict adherence to UEFA’s major event human rights principles to ensure an inclusive, discrimination-free and equal work environment for colleagues and volunteers.

The UK-Ireland bid will face competition from Turkey, with UEFA’s executive committee set to make a decision on the hosting rights for Euros 2028 and 2032 in September of this year.
