Furious England fans blast 'embarrassing' and 'wrong' FA request for Euro 2028 and say 'how boring is that?' | The Sun
THREE Lions fans were left fuming as the FA has reportedly requested for Wembley to host ALL of England's Euro 2028 fixtures.
The five-nation British Isles bid – featuring England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland – was accepted by Uefa this week.
The original plans include six venues across England – Wembley, Villa Park, St James’ Park, the Etihad, Everton’s in-construction new home at Bramley Moore Dock and the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
BUT now Gareth Southgate's side are set to be given the chance to play all their Euro 2028 matches at Wembley.
The commercial benefits of staging England matches there are likely to see the FA get their way.
The other home nations will also lobby Uefa to play their own fixtures at their national stadiums, assuming they qualify.
