Now it’s official: UEFA has awarded the European Championship 2032 to Italy and Turkey. The Executive of the European confederation, in Nyon, in fact voted yes to the joint candidacy: the assignment to Rome and Istanbul had appeared certain since the choice of the two countries, three months ago, to present themselves together, as the only candidacy for the edition that will take place in nine years.
The European Championship 2028 has been awarded to England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Ireland, again unique candidates.

Gravina’s joy

“We have worked for a long time to be able to seize this great opportunity for Italy. An important event, our country has not had the opportunity to organize a major football event since Italia ’90 and I believe it is a fair reward for the world of football. Stadiums “There are executive projects such as Bologna, Florence and Cagliari, already financed. There will be criteria that we will establish shortly, we hope that there will be commitment from everyone. Euro2032 will represent opportunities that many must be able to seize because our country must understand that the time has come to create new structures; this event has no direct implementation capacity on the stadiums, but it can allow us to throw away masks that we have superimposed so as not to start a process of change”. These are the words of Gabriele GravinaFIGC president, commenting on the assignment of the 2032 European Championships to Italy and Turkey on RaiSport.
