Italy and Turkey have submitted a joint bid to host Euro 2032, the European Football Confederation (UEFA) announced in a statement on Friday.
“UEFA confirms that it has received today (Friday) a request from the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) and the Turkish Football Federation (TFF) to merge their individual bids into a joint bid to host the Euro 2032,” UEFA said in their statement.
Turkey, which had never hosted the Euro before, also submitted a bid to host Euro 2028 and faces competition from a joint bid from the UK and Ireland.
With the two candidate countries for the organization of Euro 2032, Turkey and Italy have decided to join forces. “UEFA will now work with FIGC and TFF to ensure that the documents to be submitted for their joint bid comply with the bid requirements.”
UEFA goes on to say that “if the joint bid complies with the requirements”, it will be presented to its Executive Committee, which is due to meet on October 10 to decide on the host countries for Euros 2028 and 2032.
The next European Championships will take place in Germany from June 14 to July 14, 2024.
