Germany has beaten Turkey to host Euro 2024 after a vote by Uefa's executive committee on Thursday.


The two countries made final bid presentations before voting took place in Nyon, Switzerland.


The decision means Germany will stage the European Championship for the first time as a unified country, with West Germany having hosted the 1988 tournament.


Turkey is yet to host a major international football tournament.


It has seen previous attempts to host the Euros in 2008, 2012 and 2016 fail, as well as the 2020 Summer Olympics. Germany staged the 2006 World Cup.‍

‍Much better than Turkey. I went to the 2006 World Cup and they were great hosts.

‍ I've heard the same off a few pals. Might make the effort myself this time.

‍I found the opposite when I was there. We rocked up after driving from Blackpool in a Citrix Saxo and pitched up in a field somewhere. The Police moved us on in the morning and we went for a walk around the town. Little did we know Germany were actually playing so I was thinking if I had made the right choice in wearing my England top. We went into a bar and the welcome was unbelievable. They gave us free soup and there was no hint of trouble.

Still got the pics on my laptop.

All the way to Germany with four big lads in a Saxo. The car packed in a day after we drove it back.

We had been driving for so long we needed sleep so pitched up at the first sight of grass. The police woke us up in the morning to move us on.

It was amazing and the Germans were friendly and very welcoming. Would love to go back. Bathing in the River Rhine, shitting in woods, wing mirror shaving....

Shaving?

No point shitting in woods if you're going to have a shave afterwards.

Kind of like when I road tripped your 306 to Portugal for you and the day after I left you wrote it off by ramming it in to a Porsche?

You mean this one? It stood up quite well against the Porsche.

Never bought a red car since!

Ouch‍! All that effort for nothing. My Vauxhall got written off by a £132 000 McClaren a few months back. The guy (from Lytham) had been drinking.

‍Was probably on coke as well.

‍Would rather stick pins in my eyes than watch national team, but would have preferred Turkey. 

We go there every year; they're football mad and atmosphere would be buzzing 

Don't even know how countries qualify. 

Does this Nations Cup bollocks have something to do with it?


RE: Euro 2024: Germany to host

‍I am not sure myself but I think if you win the Nations Cup group, you quality automatically. I still think the remaining teams then have the normal qualifiers. Not sure!

‍They could change it for Euro 2024, but for the upcoming Euros you still have the normal qualifying group that will be played next year, and the top two qualify (so we should). But now instead of the playoffs between the third best teams or whatever, its the winners of the groups in the Nations League. So it's a second chance for the bigger teams that fucked up, and a chance for a handful of minnows to get through.
