Nordic countries hope to host Euro in 2024 or 2028

Danish football federation (DBU) have moved to announce that they are exploring the possibility of making a joint bid with fellow Nordic countries to host European Championship finals in 2024 or 2028.

DBU have revealed the plans to co-host the showpiece tournament with Sweden, Norway and Finland on their official website.

The football federation president Jesper Moller informed the other Scandinavian sides of his plans at the FIFA Congress in Zurich.

“Euro is one of football’s biggest events. It is wonderful for anyone who loves football,” Moller told DBU’s official website.

“The Nordic countries have common values in many areas. It also applies to how we can stage European Championship with a focus on volunteerism, sustainability and prosperity in football.”

The four football federations are expected to prepare a formal bid in the coming months, and they will find out whether it has been successful in the spring of 2017.

Sweden are the only Nordic side to have qualified for the Euro 2016 finals, defeating Denmark in the play-offs, and they will square off with Belgium, Italy and Republic of Ireland in Group E.
