Italy has the support of the new government to organize Euro 2032

ROME – The newly elected Italian government’s new sports minister has signed a letter of support for the National Football Association’s bid to host Euro 2032.

Andrea Abboudi’s signed letter will be included in the initial offer package that will be sent to UEFA next week. Such government support is necessary to try to move the process forward.

Complete applications should be submitted next March. UEFA will select the successful bid in September 2023, along with the host of the 2028 tournament.

Italy presented the European Championship in 1968 and 1980, in addition to presenting four matches in the 2020 edition. The last major tournament to be presented entirely in Italy was the 1990 World Cup. Many stadiums in the country have not been renovated in more than 20 years.

For the 2028 edition, the UK and Ireland submitted a joint application, while Turkey is a candidate for one of the two editions awarded next year. Italy only focuses on 2032.

Russia also indicated its interest in both tournaments, but its bid was withdrawn after the invasion of Ukraine.
