Germany to host Euro 2024

UEFA has announced that Germany will host Euro 2024, beating a bid from Turkey.

The forthcoming tournament will be split across several host cities, with matches to be played at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

The semi-finals and final will be played at Wembley Stadium in London, with Glasgow, Saint Petersburg and Munich also hosting matches.

Today the UEFA Executive Committee considered the final proposals from the two bidding countries, and ultimately awarded the tournament to Germany.

An evaluation report had expressed concerns over Turkey’s human rights situation and the limited hotel capacity in several cities.

The country's bid team had argued that awarding Turkey the tournament would accelerate reforms on human rights, but UEFA has decided not to award them the tournament.

Germany previously hosted the 2006 World Cup, which was won by Italy.
