Germany wins right to host UEFA Euro 2024 football championship

Germany were knocked out of the World Cup group stages last summer

On Thursday, Uefa voted to hand the event to Germany over Turkey, the only other bidder for the event, during a meeting at the headquarters of European football's governing body in Nyon, Switzerland.

Twelve years after hosting the FIFA World Cup, UEFA have confirmed that Germany will host the 2024 European Championships.

"The procedure was transparent".

Politics, national unity and respect for human rights in Turkey emerged as key themes in the campaign to host Europe's premier global football event.

Al Jazeera's Lee Wellings, speaking from London, said the Germans were the favourites to win going into the vote and the result came as "no surprise".

While the DFB's bid had always been seen as the favorite to win the right to host Euro 2024, it was given a major boost last Friday with the release of UEFA's evaluation report on the two competing bids.

The UEFA Executive Committee will announce the host of Euro 2024 at 03.45 p.m.

Germany have been awarded the right to host the 2024 European Championship by Uefa ahead of a rival bid from Turkey.

"Their infrastructure is in place, largely because of the 2006 World Cup, which was such a success", he said.

Turkey proposed its strongest, government-backed bid yet with eight of 10 stadiums already completed and owned by the sports ministry.

In July, Turkish-German footballer Mesut Ozil quit the national team, citing racial discrimination. Football fans can reach Turkey easily with Turkish Airlines, a public company with direct flights from 120 countries to more than 300 destinations in Turkey.

Turkey is hoping to host the championship for the first time after bidding for four consecutive tournaments.

"In this sense we have lost nothing as a country".

The aftermath of the summer's World Cup, Germany's worst since 1938 as the defending champions crashed out in the group stage, had led to tensions within the DFB, but all sides agreed to put differences to one side and focus on winning the right to host the 2024 European Championship.
