European football champion Italy wants to apply to host the EM 2028 or 2032.
“Before the UEFA executive meeting on March 20, we will present our candidacy, which is also open for 2032. We will examine one of the two options,” said Gabriele Gravina, head of the Italian federation FIGC.
The candidacy could help speed up the renovation of Italian stadiums.
The stadiums in Florence, Cagliari, Bologna and Bari are currently being modernized. The stadiums, which are largely owned by the municipalities, have been in need of renovation for years.
