Casement Park included in final Euro 2028 bid, Croke Park excluded

Casement Park has been included in the final list of stadiums for the Ireland-UK Euro 2028 bid, but Croke Park has been excluded.

The Aviva Stadium, home of the Irish soccer and rugby teams, has also made the final list withCroke Park removed from the initial 14 stadia long-list.

While the GAA granted permission for both Croke Park and Casement Park to be included in the final bid, only the Belfast stadium has been included.

Casement Park’s redevelopment has been hit by a series of delays. Last year a legal challenge against a decision to grant planning approval for the redevelopment was dismissed and Ulster GAA are now hopeful of having games played there in late 2025

Wembley Stadium, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the Etihad Stadium, St James’ Park, the new Everton Stadium at the docks in Liverpool, also yet to be built, and Villa Park would feature in England.

Wales would be represented with the Millennium Stadium and Scotland by Hampden Park.

Turkey are also in the running to host the tournament and a decision is expected in either September or October.
