Germany to host Euro 2024 football championship beating Turkey

Published: Updated:

Germany will host the Euro 2024 football championship, UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said on Thursday following a vote by the executive committee of European soccer’s ruling body.

Germany and Turkey were the only candidates to stage the 24-team tournament, Reuters reported.

German Football Association (DFB) president Reinhard Grindel attended the event alongside UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin in a ceremony at the headquarters of the European football’s governing body in Nyon, Switzerland according to AFP.

UEFA selected the host of the 2024 European Championship in a vote pitting a safe German bid against a riskier Turkish proposal that offers a chance to explore new terrain.
