The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) has announced plans to host the UEFA Euro 2032. Italy, the winner of the 2021 tournament, had considered a bid for Euro 2028, but FIGC’s president Gabriele Gravina said a proposal to host the tournament in 2032 would allow more time to modernize stadiums across the country. Italy previously hosted the European men’s championship in 1968 and 1980. In addition, the Stadio Olimpico in Rome was the venue for four matches at Euro 2020, including the tournament’s opening ceremony before Italy’s match against Turkey. Euro 2020, which took place in 2021 because of Covid, was held in an atypical multi-nation format.
