Italy want to host Euro 2028
Italian Football Federation (FIGC) President Gabriele Gravina admitted that he wanted the European Championship to be held in the Apennines.
During the UEFA congress, the president of the FIGC, Gabriele Gravina, said that Italy intended to fight for the right to host the European Championship in 2028.
“The idea of holding Euro-2028 in Italy arose long ago, and we are preparing to submit our application,” Sky Sport Italia quotes Gravina.
“This event will allow us to update football infrastructure and spark a wave of enthusiasm in the country. I hope that our arguments will convince UEFA.”
The last major tournament, that was held in Italy, was almost 30 years ago- the 1990 World Cup.
