UEFA to decide Euro 2024 host – Turkey or Germany?

Published

on

UEFA will select the host of the 2024 European Championship on Thursday in a vote pitting a safe German bid against a riskier Turkish proposal that offers a chance to explore new frontiers.



Germany, with its a long history of hosting major sporting events, has everything in place for a successful tournament, from stadiums to infrastructure and hotels, UEFA said in an evaluation last week.

Turkey, desperate to host its first ever major sporting event, boasts gleaming new stadiums and a football-mad fanbase.

But its economy is troubled, its transport network is lacking and, perhaps most importantly, the country’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has presided over an unprecedented crackdown that has prompted global concern over respect for human rights.

Germany has at times been bitterly critical of Turkey under Erdogan.

And, by extraordinary coincidence, the Turkish leader will be in Germany on Thursday for a trip that includes talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Germany hosted the World Cup in 2006, but has never staged the Euro as a unified country: West Germany hosted in 1988.

The bid sees matches spread over 10 stadiums with capacity for a total of 2.78 million spectators — 290,000 more than Turkey — giving Germany a financial edge from potential ticket revenue.

UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin has made clear it is crucial “to make as much money as possible,” from Euro 2024.

But Germany is not just pitching itself as a steady hand that can host without a hitch — it has also voiced confidence that a tournament on its soil could build societal unity.

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil, born in Germany to Turkish parents, accused the German FA (DFB) of racism when he retired from international football in July after the country’s shock ouster from the World Cup.

Germany’s vision for Euro 2024, according to UEFA, “is rooted in the belief that football can unify society and this tournament can create an enduring legacy for European football.”

The polarising Turkish president has massively developed football infrastructure during his 15 years in power but has always come away empty-handed from bids for Turkey to host major tournaments.

A victory on Thursday would solidify his image as a man who can deliver, but his increasingly authoritarian reputation has likely not helped his cause.

Rights groups have decried the thousands of arrests that followed a failed 2016 coup.

Some have also suggested that awarding the event to the Muslim-majority nation will carry huge symbolism on a continent wrestling with religious tensions.

The vice chairman of the Turkish Football Federation, Servet Yardimci, told AFP it was “high time” his country hosted after four failed bids.

In the contest between old reliable and uncharted waters, UEFA may choose to play it safe.
