UEFA confirmed on Wednesday that it had received a request from Italy and Turkey to combine their individual bids into one bid to host Euro 2032, leaving the UK and Ireland as the sole bidders for the 2028 tournament.

“Awarding the two tournaments still requires the approval of the Executive Committee at its meeting in Nyon on October 10,” UEFA said in a statement.

A joint bid to host Euro 2028 has been submitted by England, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The Euro 2028 bid was not opposed after Turkey withdrew from the race to focus on a joint bid for Euro 2032 with Italy.

The Irish Football Association said: “We look forward to submitting our bid to UEFA on October 10. These are exciting times, and we have a very compelling bid to host Euro 2028.”
