London Stadium could be used for Euro 2028

The London Stadium could be used to host games if the UK and Ireland win a joint-bid to host Euro 2028, per The Times.

As few as six English stadiums will be used if the bid is successful and there are now 10 potential grounds on the list.

Wembley and the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium are the frontrunners to be the London venues but the London Stadium is being considered as a potential destination to host games.

Anfield and the Emirates Stadium have been snubbed but Stadium MK, the home of MK Dons, is on the list.

The UK and Ireland are currently bidding against Turkey for Euro 2028. Ireland would have two stadiums, with Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland all getting one.
