Germany to host Euro 2024

Germany to host Euro 2024

They comfortably beat the only other bidders Turkey in a two-horse contest.

Germany, which previously staged the event as West Germany in 1988 and successfully held the 2006 World Cup, won the vote among UEFA’s executive committee after a four-year campaign which, for the first time, featured human rights as one of the specific bid criteria.

Germany received 12 of the 17 votes with four for Turkey and one abstention.


The decision, announced by UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin, was a bitter disappointment for Turkey who have yet to stage a major football tournament and also failed with bids to host the event in 2008, 2012 and 2016.

“The procedure was transparent, the vote was democratic. Every democratic decision is the right decision,” Ceferin said.

“I know that Germany will be fantastic hosts and that we will see a wonderful tournament both on and off the pitch.”

The tournament, featuring 24 teams, will revert to its conventional format of being held in a single host country in 2024. The Euro 2020 tournament will be staged in cities around the continent to celebrate its 60th anniversary.
