The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) and the Turkish Football Federation (TFF) have asked to combine their separate bids into a single joint bid to host Euro 2032, according to UEFA.
Italy had previously submitted a bid in April to host the 2032 European Championship, while Turkey had also submitted a bid to host the tournament in either 2028 or 2032.
“UEFA will now work with FIGC and TFF to ensure that the documentation to be submitted for their joint bid is compliant with the bidding requirements,” European soccer’s governing body said in a statement.
UEFA has stated that if the joint bid meets the necessary criteria, it will be presented to the UEFA Executive Committee on October 10th, where the hosts for the 2028 and 2032 editions will be chosen.
England, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Scotland, and Wales have also submitted a joint bid to host the 2028 edition. UEFA has mentioned that decisions regarding venues and match schedules will be determined at a later time.
