Aleksandar Vucic, the President of Serbia, following the joint meeting held in Belgrade between the leaders of Serbia, Greece, Bulgaria, and Romania announced that the four countries will submit their joint candidacy to potentially host two major football competitions, the EURO 2028 and the World Cup in 2030.
Vucic said that a 16-member committee will be formed in which four representatives from each country will participate.
Συζητήσαμε τέλος, για την κοινή υποψηφιότητα των τεσσάρων χωρών μας για την φιλοξενία του Ευρωπαϊκού Κυπέλλου του 2028 ή του Παγκόσμιου Κυπέλλου του 2030. Η διοργάνωσή τους θα έχει μεγάλη συμβολική σημασία, προβάλλοντας τα Βαλκάνια ως θετικό παράδειγμα στην Ευρώπη. 🇬🇷🇷🇸🇧🇬🇷🇴
