UK and Ireland abandon 2030 World Cup, bid for Euro 2028 instead


The United Kingdom and Ireland have announced plans for a bid to host the 2028 European Championship, the football associations of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and the Republic of Ireland said in a joint statement on Monday.

The five associations have dropped plans to bid for the 2030 World Cup and will instead focus on the European tournament.

“Hosting a UEFA EURO offers a similar return on investment, with the European tournament carrying a far lower delivery cost and the potential of the benefits being realised sooner,” they said in a statement.

“We believe the U.K. and the Republic of Ireland can offer UEFA and European football something special in 2028 — a compact and unique five-way hosting collaboration that will provide a great experience for the teams and the fans.”

The 2020 Euros were held in several host cities across Europe. The 2024 edition will be hosted by Germany.
