Turkey stands for the promise of the ‘world’s favourite game’, unifying people from all walks of life.
As a leading European tourist destination, and the geographical centre of the world, we want to extend UEFA EURO 2024 to a wider audience and share this experience with all of our great nations.
From here, we are well-placed to promote inclusion, diversity and accessibility in the game.
We will share our passion for football, the wonders of our great country, and this lasting legacy with everyone. We will share together.
All our hearts are beating for 2024
As the youngest European nation, Turkey’s candidacy for UEFA EURO 2024 is not only crucial for the people living on this land, but for Europe as well.
With the 28.7% of our population aged under 17, it’s so thrilling to imagine how great it would be to host EURO 2024, fuelling the interest and love for football in our country. Whilst providing the maximum possible comfort to the competing teams with our young stadiums, we are excited to offer unforgettable moments for football fans who will visit our country and experience our Turkish hospitality.
In addition to contributing to the international football, UEFA EURO 2024 will be the peak of Turkish Football Federation’s mission to develop football from grassroots to the top professional level.
Turkey’s strongest reference in organising European Championship in a festive atmosphere and as the highest competitive scene, is the unique experiences in stadiums shared at 2005 UEFA Champions League, 2009 UEFA Cup and 2013 FIFA U20 World Cup finals. We want to offer an enriched version of such experiences to the whole world once again.
Our friends who will travel to Turkey for football and the common language of the European civilisation will bring the rich history of ancient lands and memories from the cultural and social life back with them when returning to their countries. We will form a new light for football fans through our nation’s love for football and our rich historical texture, uniting two continents. We invite all people to share our passion for football in Turkey.
We have the full support from our citizens and government for this event. Turkey is a footballing nation where the uniting and peaceful power of football can be enjoyed to the fullest. Everybody can be assured that with our passion for football, human resources, organisational capability, and our high-tech stadiums, we are ready to deliver a successful European Championship.
Our call to the whole world; Let’s share EURO 2024 together…
