Manchester City's Etihad Stadium among 14 stadiums included in the UK and Ireland's Euro 2028 bid

The home of reigning Premier League champions Manchester City has been included in a list of stadiums as part of the UK and Ireland's bid to host Euro 2028, it has been confirmed.

At present, the bid from the UK and Ireland is being challenged by Turkey.

However, there will certainly be hope from the part of the former that their offer of iconic and world class stadia will be enough to secure the position as hosts for the tournament.

As part of that list of stadia, the Etihad Stadium - home of Manchester City - has been included.

The former centre piece for the Commonwealth games in the city has become of the most iconic football venues in the world, largely following the success seen by the Premier League giants since their takeover from the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008.

The next step for Manchester City and the Etihad Stadium could be their hopes of being included in the final list of the stadia submitted by the UK and Ireland next year.

That offer to host the European Championships of 2028 has this week been confirmed.

As confirmed in a report by the Athletic this week, the UK and Ireland have now submitted their joint bid to host the 2028 European Championships.

As part of the confirmed bid, nine stadiums from England, two in the Republic of Ireland, and one in each of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales have been named in a provisional list.

Subsequently, four stadiums will be removed when the final list of grounds is submitted to UEFA in April, 2023.

For the moment, and likely beyond, Manchester City's Etihad Stadium has been named in the provisional list.
