The UK and Ireland are putting in a bid to host the Euros in 2028 and what turned a lot of heads here in Ireland is the biggest stadium in the country and the home of the GAA, Croke Park isn’t on the list of stadiums being put forward to be used. Aviva Stadium and a redeveloped Casement Park is.

Old Trafford, Croke Park, the Stadium of Light, and London Stadium, were all on the original longer list, but failed to make the final cut. Regardless it is expected that the UK and Ireland’s big should be successful nonetheless.
Interesting to note that Croke Park has been dropped from the Euro 2028 bid partly because UEFA prefer smaller stadia for "unglamorous" ties.
I'd like to see the GAA take a similar approach. Croker is great for finals/semi-finals but the place looks empty for most other games.

The Ireland-UK bid to host Euro 2028 has been submitted to UEFA with Croke Park excluded from the proposed stadia to be used in favour of the Aviva Stadium and a redeveloped Casement Park https://t.co/Jr42Hym7Su

This will be a massive boost for the Irish economy and it will be great to see young children given the chance to go watch some of their favourite players.
