Will Villa Park be one of the stadiums used at Euro 2028?

England could have just six stadiums at Euro 2028 - here’s the list

Villa Park is reportedly in contention to be picked as one of the stadiums which will be used for Euro 2028 if England and Ireland win the bid to host the tournament.

The UK and Ireland looked set to be confirmed as host countries for the tournament before Turkey submitted an application before the March deadline. UEFA will announce the winning entrant next September .

According to The Times, the number of English stadiums on the list of contenders is now down to just ten. Anfield, Elland Road and the Emirates Stadium have surprisingly been omitted from that list.

The report states that the list will be reduced down to six or seven stadiums by Uefa.

Russia had also made a bid to host the tournament but have been deemed ineligible following the invasion of Ukraine and they have also been banned from competing at Euro 2024.
