German Football Federation To Submit Bid To Host Euro 2024
The German Football Federation (DFB) told UEFA that it "will submit a bid to host" Euro 2024, according to Karolos Grohmann of REUTERS. DFB President Wolfgang Niersbach said, "Eighteen years after the unique 2006 World Cup the time is right for another summer fairytale in Germany. The last time the DFB hosted the Euro was 1988. We think we have good chances because as organizers of past tournaments we always left an excellent impression on FIFA and UEFA." Germany "has also bid for one of the packages to host matches for Euro 2020, putting Munich forward as a candidate city" (REUTERS, 10/24).
