Turkish daily media today announced Turkish Football Federation's plans to host Euro 2024 in Turkey.
Turkey, which lost Euro 2016 with one bid to France, would like to host the European football championship in 2024. When Michel Platini has said that Euro 2020 would be hosted in several nations, Turkish Football Federation withdrew its proposal to host the tournament.
But today, Turkey reveals its wish to host the event alone in 2024. There are 28 stadiums that are currently under construction in Turkey and 13 of them will be completed by next year. With completion of brand-new stadiums, Turkey will be a strong candidate to host the sports event.
Turkish Football Federation plans to organize the final match at Istanbul Atatürk Olympic Stadium and other stadiums are: Ulker Stadium, TT Arena, Vodafone Arena and newly constructed stadiums in Eskişehir, Antalya, Ankara, Kayseri, Konya, Trabzon, Samsun, Bursa, Mersin. Turkey sees Germany as the biggest competitor at the bidding process for Euro 2024. Turkey will present its candidency in 2017 and host country will be announced in 2018.
