Football |  EM: Great Britain and Ireland have announced the EM bid for 2028

Status: 07.02.2022 11:41 am

The football associations of Great Britain and Ireland have decided not to host the 2030 World Cup. Instead, they want to apply for the 2028 European Championship. Five associations from England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland made the announcement in a joint statement.

The decision is the result of a feasibility study of international tournaments, which, among other things, examined the economic implications, aspects of football policy, and the expected costs of the organization. EM’s orientation promises similar returns, but it says that the costs to be paid are significantly lower and the potential gains have already been realized.

The last date to apply is March 23

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced last year that Great Britain and Ireland were preparing an application for the 2030 World Cup, and that the award would be taken up in 2024. However, it was criticized for failing to qualify for the 2006 and 2018 English World Cups. The application period for EM 2028 ends on March 23. The hosts of the tournament are expected to be announced on April 5th.
