- Wembley Stadium (London)

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.
