Turkey Applies to UEFA to Host Euro 2020

Turkish Football Federation president Yildirim Demiroren said in a statement on Tuesday that his country officially submitted a bid to host 2020 European Championship.

Experts believe this is another step by the country to become a major sports player following its candidacy to hold the Olympics in the same year.

“Today we officially filed our candidacy to the Union of European Football Associations to host the second biggest football event in the world in Turkey in 2020.” Yildirim Demiroren announced.

Previously, the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan asked from the Union of European Football Associations to grant Turkey the right to organize Euro 2020 in last month during the opening of the sixth general assembly session of the Continental Union in Istanbul.

Turkey was nominated to host Euro 2016, but France received this honor. Erdogan and the number of authorities of Turkey announced in their speech to construct 18 new playgrounds in the near future.

UEFA President Michel Platini has said he would back Turkey to host Euro 2020 only if Istanbul loses the Olympic bid.
