The Scottish Government has welcomed the submission of the UK and Ireland bid to host the 2028 UEFA European Football Championship.
This bid has been submitted jointly by the five football associations of the UK and Ireland today.
First Minister Humza Yousaf said:
“Scotland has a well-earned global reputation as an outstanding host of major events, and football – our national game – is a powerful force for good in communities across the country.
“It is this combination which underpins Scottish Government support for the joint bid.
“Together with the Scottish Football Association and partners across the bid nations, I am excited by the prospect of building on the successful delivery of EURO 2020 in Scotland and our country hosting another incredible championship.
“UEFA EURO 2028 will have a significant global reach and has the potential to leave a positive lasting legacy in Scotland by generating significant economic, environmental and social benefits.”
