Villa Park and the 10 stadiums selected for UK & Ireland UEFA EURO 2028 bid - gallery

All you need to know as Aston Villa, Tottenham, Everton, Manchester United and Newcastle find out their fate ahead of the UEFA EURO 2028 bid

The stadium list for Euro 2028 has been confirmed should the UK and Ireland be successful in their bid to host the major footballing event.

Organisers behind the bid had previously confirmed a shortlist of 14 stadiums that would hold the international matches in 2028 and that list has now been whittled down to just 10. Turkey is the other candidate to host the tournament in June and July.

From the original 14 stadiums shortlisted, today’s news will be disappointment for the Stadium of Light, Old Trafford, Croke Park and the London Stadium, who have not found a place in the final 10.

Villa Park has been included in the list. Christian Purslow, the club’s CEO, said: “We are immensely proud that Villa Park, one of the most renowned and historic football stadiums in the UK, has been selected as part of the UEFA EURO 2028 Bid.

“This is tremendously exciting not just for our football club to be included in such a unique undertaking but also for Birmingham and the wider West Midlands region. Alongside plans to redevelop the North Stand end of the stadium in time for the tournament, which will provide a multi-faceted boost to the immediate vicinity and the surrounding areas as well as turning Villa Park into a world-class arena, our home and the city will have the honour of hosting elite level sport again that it so richly deserves.”

The final bid for UEFA EURO 2028 has been submitted today with the host being officially confirmed and announced in the autumn of 2023.

Here are the 10 stadiums that have been chosen to host Euro 2028 if the UK and Ireland are handed the tournament:
