Italy Back In To Host Euro 2012

Filed under: World Soccer — Ivan @ 11:25 pm

With the 2008 edition of the tournament only a few months away, talk of the next showdown is already underway as FIFA have suffered a setback in selecting a host for the competition.

Ukraine and Poland had been mooted to co-host the 2012 edition, but the eastern European neighbours are reportedly suffering from ‘logistical problems’ which may hinder their running of a major international tournament.

Italy have intervened and could well relieve the pressure on both FIFA and the nations in question by staging the competition themselves.

Italian Football Federation president Giancarlo Abete (pictured) recently addressed the issue speaking to Radio Rai, but noted he would also settle for a bid to host the 2016 competition.

“UEFA have given a deadline of four to six months for Poland and Ukraine to bring things to the right level,” he revealed.

“The decision made in 2007 was political in the sense that they wanted to give a lift to eastern Europe.

“After Euro 2008 we will see what the situation is. Truthfully, I hope that these two countries can make the most of this chance, but if there are any problems then the competition to host it will be reopened.

“In any case, we need to think about restructuring our stadiums ahead of any decision.

“There’s still plenty of time to think about 2016, as applications haven’t opened yet. We will talk about it in 2009. It’s our job to get things up to the necessary standard in case.”
