Following Turkey’s withdrawal to concentrate on a joint bid with Italy for Euro 2032, the UK and Republic of Ireland will now submit an uncontested bid for Euro 2028.
In July, Turkey and Italy agreed to combine their Euro 2032 bids, and UEFA has now given its approval.
Turkey submitted a bid to host both the 2028 and 2032 competitions, while Italy only submitted a bid for the 2032 event.
Both proposals still require formal clearance from UEFA at its executive committee meeting on Tuesday.
The presentations at that meeting will play a significant role in the decision-making process, according to Uefa, which will also give careful consideration to the content of the bid proposals.
The Champions League final between Manchester City and Turkey took place in June.
Champions of Europe in reign The Stadio Olimpico in Rome served as the venue for Euro 2020, and Italy earlier hosted the tournament in 1968 and 1980.
Ten stadiums, including Glasgow’s Hampden Park, Cardiff’s Principality Stadium, Dublin’s Aviva Stadium, and London’s Wembley, were chosen for the UK and Republic of Ireland’s candidacy in April.
Two unfinished stadiums, Casement Park in Belfast and Bramley-Moore Dock for Everton, are also listed in the offer.
Wales, Northern Ireland, and the Republic of Ireland have never played host to a major competition.
Along with Scotland, England was one of the 11 nations to host Euro 2020. It also served as the only host of World Cup 1966 and Euro 96.
