Great Britain and Ireland announce stadium locations for EURO 2028


If Great Britain and Ireland host the Euro 2028 tournament, they will likely choose a combination of existing stadiums and new venues that meet UEFA’s criteria for hosting major football events.

A few possible stadiums that could be considered for the tournament include:

Wembley Stadium in London, England: Wembley is one of the world’s most iconic football stadiums and has a capacity of 90,000 spectators. It has also hosted numerous high-profile events, including the 2011 and 2013 UEFA Champions League finals. and has hosted major soccer events such as the 2012 Olympic Games

Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland: Aviva Stadium is a state-of-the-art venue that opened in 2010 and has a capacity of 51,700. It has hosted many international soccer matches and rugby union events.

Hampden Park in Glasgow, Scotland: Hampden Park is Scotland’s national stadium and has a capacity of 51,866. It has hosted several major football events, including the 2002 UEFA Cup Final and the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales: The Principality Stadium is the national stadium of Wales and has a capacity of 74,500. It has hosted several major sporting events including the 2017 UEFA Champions League Final and the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Other possible stadiums include the Emirates Stadium in London, the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, the Aviva Stadium in Belfast, and the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

Other major stadiums in Great Britain could be potentially used for Euro 2028, including:

Located in London, Emirates Stadium has a capacity of 60,260 and is home to Arsenal Football Club.

Old Trafford in Manchester has a capacity of 76,000 and hosted matches during the 1966 World Cup and the 2003 UEFA Champions League final.

Manchester’s Etihad Stadium has a capacity of 55,017 and is home to Manchester City Football Club.

Other notable stadiums in Great Britain and Ireland include Liverpool’s Anfield, Glasgow’s Celtic Park, and Cardiff’s Principality Stadium.

Ultimately, the final list of stadiums will depend on factors like capacity, location, accessibility, and infrastructure, as well as the availability and suitability of each venue.

It is important to note that the final decision on which stadiums will be used for Euro 2028 will be decided by European football’s governing body UEFA.

The final list includes England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and the Republic of Ireland – five countries each have at least one stadium – with London the only city with more than one potential venue.

The list includes Everton’s new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock, which is still under development. It may come as a surprise that this legend is missing from the Old Trafford roster.

Below is a list of cities and stadiums with the highest to lowest capacity:

  • London-Wembley (90,652)
  • Cardiff – The Principality Stadium (73 952)
  • London – Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (62322)
  • Manchester – Etihad Stadium (61,000)
  • Liverpool vs. Everton Stadium (52,679)
  • Newcastle – St James’s Park (52,305)
  • Birmingham – Villa Park (52,190)
  • Glasgow – Hampden Park (52,032)
  • Dublin – Aviva Stadium (51,711)
  • Belfast – Casement Park (34,500)

A historical project in the archipelago, Türkiye is not abandoning its weapon. The 2028 European Championship hosts Turkey, the only contenders for Great Britain and Ireland, were announced by Uefa after receiving final offers from the countries concerned.

The bid is the country’s sixth in a row following five previous failures (2008, 2012, 2016, 2020, and 2024). On April 12, the Turkish Football Federation published a list of 10 stadiums for both the 2028 and 2032 bids.
