Turkey to battle Germany for Euro 2024

Turkey hopes to make it fourth time lucky after UEFA said on Wednesday it would go up against Germany for the right to stage Euro 2024.

Both countries had long voiced interest but they have now submitted a declaration of interest to snag European football’s showpiece, with a decision due in September 2018.

“The Turkish Football Federation has already put in bids on three occasions to host the UEFA Euros,” said Turkish Football Federation (TFF) president Yildirim Demiroren.

“Over the last few years around 32 new stadiums have been built or are currently being constructed around the country. With this level of investment, Turkey is proving that it is one of the world’s leaders in its commitment to football infrastructure.”

Turkey had been a candidate to host final-stage matches for the 2020 Euros — which will be staged across 13 European cities — but withdrew its bid to concentrate on 2024. Istanbul lost out to Tokyo in the bidding to host the 2020 Olympic Games.

Germany hopes its experience of staging major sports events, including the 2006 World Cup, will be the clincher.

“We’re confident in saying that with our vast experience, our current stadium infrastructure and the basic conditions in Germany, we can stage an economic, first-class tournament,” said German Football Association (DFB) president Reinhard Grindel.

UEFA general secretary Theodore Theodoridis said it would be “a tough decision” for the UEFA Executive Committee, adding it would be “a transparent bidding process”.

Germany and Turkey have until April 27, 2018 to complete and submit their bid dossiers to UEFA.

A joint bid from Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Norway had been prepared but was decided against in the end.
