UEFA announced Germany as the host of Euro 2024


UEFA has announced Germany as the of host Euro 2024 after winning the challenge of Turkey. This decision represents good news for England’s 2030 World Cup bid, Uefa’s executive committee supported UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin’s choice. 

Ceferin was ready to ensure the safest bid won as he prepares for what UEFA insiders accept could be a chaotic 2020 championships which will be split over 12 nations. But the decision has implications for the plans for an English led British Isles World Cup in 12 years time.

Ceferin has publicly declared his support for the FA’s plans to lead the 2030 campaign as Europe’s sole candidate. Former Manchester United chief executive David Gill and outgoing Arsenal boss Ivan Gazidis, both members of the executive committee, backed Ceferin in his push for Germany. And the victory for the UEFA President’s choice is proof of his  effectiveness and is emerging as the strongest figure in world football.
Ceferin stated his reason for his choice as he said:
First of all the procedure was transparent. The voting was democratic and every democratic decision is the right decision. I can only say that I am looking forward to going to see a fantastic European Championship in Germany in 2024.
Germany had long been the favourites but their bid was hit by the Mesut Ozil “racism” storm and a public role between FA President Reinhard Grindel and FIFA boss Gianni Infantino.
But Turkey were badly damaged by the official UEFA evaluation report which questioned the country’s commitment to human rights and doubted the economic and infrastructure plans.
