    UK and Ireland’s Euro 2028 bid in jeopardy

    The UK and Ireland’s joint bid for Euro 2028 is in crisis mode due to Casement Park needing “a miracle” to be ready in time.

    The venue, located in Belfast, is threatening to drag the joint UK/Ireland Euro 2028 bid down, with Uefa unconvinced about redevelopment plans for the site.

    And ex-Irish FA president and former Fifa vice president Jim Boyce says it will be a tough task for it to be ready to host games at Euro 2028.

    Boyce told The Irish Sun: “While Northern Ireland are joining in the bid to host Euro 2028 with England, Scotland, Wales and the Republic of Ireland, the chances of Casement Park being ready are slim. There is little chance.

    “The government in Northern Ireland are not even meeting at the minute, the money hasn’t been released, there hasn’t been a brick laid at Casement Park.

    “My honest opinion is that it would take a miracle for Casement Park to be available for European Championship matches to be played in 2028.”
