Euro 2024 is coming to the Volksparkstadion
UEFA has awarded the tournament to Germany, who will host the tournament in six years time
Just a few hours before HSV kick off their away clash at Greuther Fürth, the club and the city of Hamburg have received some very good news. UEFA’s executive committee announced their decision to award Germany the UEFA Euro 2024 tournament today in Nyon, Switzerland. Germany’s bid was successful ahead of a rival bid from Turkey. This is great news for the city of Hamburg, as the Volksparkstadion is one of the ten stadiums part of the Germany bid, meaning the city will host games for the European Championship in six years time.
Hamburg, who had supported the DFB’s bid through the motto “United by Football,” is overjoyed at UEFA’s decision. Bernd Hoffmann, CEO of HSV Fußball AG, said: “this is a great success for the DFB and also a huge victory for Hamburg! We are already looking forward to welcoming guests from all over Europe, exciting matches and we want to be excellent hosts just like we were at the 2006 World Cup. Between now and then, we have a lot of work to do to prepare for the tournament. We are motivated to get started with preparations on Monday.”
