With the decision on the hosts of UEFA EURO 2016 fast approaching, UEFA is visiting the three candidates – Turkey (8/9 April), Italy (12/13 April) and France (14/15 April) – as part of the technical analysis of the three bids. The trio of candidates formally handed over their bid dossiers to UEFA in February.
UEFA has analysed the written bid dossiers and sent a list of open points to the bidders. During the coming week, technical workshops will take place in each of the bidding countries to clarify any open points. The visiting officials will also gain an insight into the political feeling of support from central government and the cities.
Following the technical workshops in each country, an evaluation report will be produced. It will be made public on UEFA.com on 14 May, and sent to the bidders, the UEFA National Team Competitions Committee and the UEFA Executive Committee.
The National Team Competitions Committee will meet on 26 May to finalise technical recommendations to the Executive Committee, and the key aspects of the bid and technical evaluations will be presented by National Team Competitions Committee delegates to the Executive Committee on 27 May.
On 28 May, the bidders will make their final presentation to the Executive Committee, whose members will then deliberate and vote. In accordance with the regulations, UEFA president Michel Platini (France), Executive Committee first vice-president Şenes Erzik (Turkey) and Executive Committee member Giancarlo Abete (Italy) may not take part in the discussions and are not entitled to vote.
The hosts of UEFA EURO 2016 will be announced in Geneva at 13.00CET on 28 May.
