Germany Overcome Turkey In Bid To Host 2024 European Championships

Germany wins right to host UEFA Euro 2024 beating Turkish bid Frank Hoermann Global Look Press

Thursday's announcement was delayed by several minutes, but when UEFA President Alexander Ceferin finally stepped onto the stage at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, it came as little surprise that it was Germany's name that he pulled out of the envelope.

Following the final presentations of the two applicants, Germany and Turkey, the UEFA Executive Committee deliberated and voted to select the hosts of UEFA EURO 2024, under the supervision of an independent notary.

Turkey is now a four-time losing candidate after failed bids to host Euro 2008, 2012 and 2016.

After announcing the victor, he added: "The procedure was transparent".

An evaluation report by European football's governing body said giving the right to host to Turkey presented "risks". Germany, which has one of the leading football leagues in the world, boasts of a string of top-class stadiums and is more than equipped to host the football extravaganza.

Three months after Federation Internationale de Football Association members picked a North American bid over Morocco to host the 2026 World Cup, UEFA also opted for a more proven and profitable option.

"I am really looking forward to another celebration of the best of European national team football in 2024, and I know that Germany will be fantastic hosts and that we will see a wonderful tournament both on and off the pitch".

"Their infrastructure is in place, largely because of the 2006 World Cup, which was such a success", he said.

Joachim Low has described the decision to make Germany 2024 European Championship hosts as "exceptional for our country".

The German bid, which sees matches spread over 10 stadiums, has the capacity to sell 2.78 million tickets - almost 300,000 more than Turkey.

Earlier on this year, Germany crashed out of the World Cup in the group stages, and their worldwide team has been filled with controversy ever since.

UEFA relies on the competition to help fund 55 member federations.
