Berlin • Germany has struck a deal with England that will give the country a good chance to host the 2024 European Championship.
The agreement would see the Germans drop their interest in hosting the Euro 2020 semifinals and final ahead of the vote by UEFA's executive committee on Sept. 19. Wembley Stadium in London and Allianz Arena in Munich had been the contenders to host the final matches at Euro 2020, which is being spread across the continent.
"We've spoken with (England) about it, that they could hold off (applying for) Euro 2024 and support our application," German football federation general secretary Helmut Sandrock told Sport Bild magazine. "In turn, we'd forego the final Euro 2020 games and support England's bid for Euro 2028."
