Germany win vote to host 2024 European Championship

28 September, 2018, 11:02 | Author: Lora Ball

Germany has won the right to host the UEFA Euro 2024 football tournament, beating a rival bid from Turkey at a vote on Thursday.

The decision, announced by UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin, was a bitter disappointment for Turkey, which also failed with bids to host the 2008, 2012, and 2016 tournaments.

After announcing the victor, he added: "The procedure was transparent. Every democratic decision is the right decision so I can only say I am looking forward to seeing a fantastic Euro in 2024".

What caused training ground bust-up between Mourinho and Pogba
The former Red Devils midfielder told Paddy Power: "If this was happening under Sir Alex, he'd have said one thing; 'He's going". Barcelona have reportedly decided that they have no intention of paying £200m for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba .

"No to Racism" - a campaign launched by UEFA to eliminate racism, discrimination and intolerance from football - may shatter the hopes for Germany's EURO 2024 hosting bid.

In the end the result was not close: Germany, which had been the favourite, won the vote among UEFA's executive committee members by a margin of 12-4, with one abstention.

Turkey meanwhile had been desperate to host its first ever major sporting event but its bid was weakened by concerns over its faltering economy, lacking transport network and, perhaps most importantly, human rights.

Who's who in the Kavanaugh-Ford hearing
Republicans also risk rejection by female voters in November if they are seen as not fully respecting women and their allegations. Manchin was among a handful of Democrats from red and purple states that Kavanaugh supporters were targeting as possible votes.

The president of the German Football Association (DFB), Reinhard Grindel, said: "I would like to thank the UEFA Executive Committee for its trust and confidence".

Turkish Sports Minister Muharrem Kasapoglu called the outcome "sad" and implied that the loser in the bidding was not Turkey but the tournament itself, which would miss out on the experience of taking place in Turkey.

In what will be the first time Germany have hosted the tournament as a unified nation, the 1988 tournament was held in West Germany; a particularly memorable tournament for Irish football fans. "There is nothing we have lost as a country".

U.S. Sanctions Venezuelan President's Wife for Corruption
He stands accused of authoritarianism over his crackdowns on protests and attempts to shut off opposition paths to power. He said Maduro's socialism "has bankrupted the oil-rich nation and driven its people into abject poverty".

The aftermath of the summer's World Cup, Germany's worst since 1938 as the defending champions crashed out in the group stage, had led to tensions within the DFB, but all sides agreed to put differences to one side and focus on winning the right to host the 2024 European Championship.
