Russian bid to host Euros in 2028 is thrown out by UEFA

UEFA has classed Russia’s bid to hold the men’s Euros in 2028 and 2032 as “ineligible”.

Russia has also been disqualified from the Women’s Euros and Portugal will take the place of the Russian team in the competition this summer.

UEFA’s latest ruling means the UK and Ireland’s Joint bid to host the Euros in 2028 will be only rivaled by Turkey, which has also declared its interest in hosting the competition in 2032.

The governing body of European football confirmed the decision as “one of several” relating to the “ongoing suspension of Russian teams and clubs” from its competitions.

UEFA also ruled that Russia will not be allowed to play in UEFA club competitions next season.
