Evelina Christillin’s words on the awarding of the 2032 European Championship to Italy and Turkey: “It has been decided: and about the stadiums in which it will take place…”
Euro 2032 will be assigned Italy and Türkiyewho presented it Double candidacy. Revealing it is Evelina Christillin To I also broadcast sports At Rai Radio 1. Below are his words.
ASSIGNMENT – “No, there will be no surprises tomorrow, the 2032 European Championships will be awarded to Italy and Turkey, it’s a done deal.” The field was left open for Great Britain and Ireland for 2028 and consequently the green light was given to Italy and Turkey for the Euro 2032 decided and shared. The vote is scheduled for tomorrow, we will be in Nyon, there will be a short presentation by Our delegation consisted of FIGC President Gravina, Gigi Buffon and Ilaria D’Amico. And then we will work on the stadiums.”.
STADIUMS – «Only five cities can host the European Championships. It is an agreement reached at UEFA between the Italian and Turkish associations, even if there is still no final choice for the five cities – Christillin continued – there will be a kind of competition: an opportunity to compete against each other in order to renovate or do something completely new stadiums, which are Italy’s main problem. Italy and Turkey are two candidates welcomed by UEFA, the Italian problem concerns the stadiums. There will be a kind of competition for the ten cities that have to present their projects by the end of 2026. We’ll see who the five finalists will be».
VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS IN Türkiye – «In that sense, I don’t think there will be any further impact. Let’s not forget that the last edition of the Champions League final took place in Turkey. The relationships were continuous and cordial even from a non-sporting perspective. And then look at what happened at UEFA and FIFA with the decision to let the U17 junior teams of Russian nationality compete again: with sport they are trying to go beyond sport, to build bridges and not barriers. I believe that this dual candidacy can promote good relationships through sport in other, much more important areas».
NEW CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FORMAT – «If Italy manages to maintain second place in the UEFA rankings, we will have five teams that will qualify for the next Champions League. We hope that with the new Spalletti pitch we can also have the fifth team».
JUVE – «A positive future. Tomorrow we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the company owned by the Agnelli family in Turin. I believe it is a strong signal in the anniversary year, a reinvestment of another 200 million to remedy a situation that can only lead to improvements both on and off the pitch. We expect a more peaceful future than what Juve and the fans experienced last year. Best wishes and thanks to the Agnelli family, the only case in the world of having the same owner of a top team for 100 years».
POGBA – «A great sadness, even human. This boy is suffering, he did things he shouldn’t have done and there was also an environment of friends and family that didn’t make things easier or easier. He certainly couldn’t find the peace and quiet he needed either in his family or among his friends. It is a page that is ending at the moment, he is thirty years old, it is not that life ends there but it is a great sadness for him. We wish him all the best and hope he recovers. From a footballing point of view, I think it’s the end of his story in Italy».
