Germany will bid to host European Championship in 2024

Current World Champions Germany have applied to host Euro 2024, the DFB (German FA) announced on Friday.

“Hosting the Euros in 2024 would be a light-house project for the whole of German football. We will hand in an application of the highest quality and we will make sure that we choose the ten locations for matches to take place via a transparent, comprehensible manner. We have both the stadiums and infrastructure in Germany and we already know how to organize an economically viable and ecologically compatible tournament. I will ensure that we will do our upmost to convince UEFA of our strong credentials to host another successful European Championships much like in 1988,” said DFB President Reinhard Grindel.

A plan to submit 10 host venues, they must hold a capacity of 30,000, not including media and areas with restricted viewing. The application process closes in April 2018, with the host country for 2024 to be selected in September 2018.
