Euros 2020 champions Italy will put forward a proposal to European soccer's governing body UEFA to host either the 2028 or 2032 edition of the championship, Gabriele Gravina the head of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) confirmed on Wednesday.

Italy had originally planned to bid to host either Euro 2028 or the 2030 World Cup, but a smaller project is more appealing and gives the country a chance to make some much-needed renovations to its stadiums.

"The decisive step for the 2028 Euros is in March and we will present our candidacy before the UEFA Executive committee, which is also open for 2032," FIGC president Gabriele Gravina told a news conference.

"We will evaluate one of the two options. We'll do it in a serious fashion, because there is a great desire for a renewal of infrastructures, for example in Florence, Cagliari, Bologna, and Bari."

Some Italian stadiums have not been updated since the 1990 World Cup, the last major soccer tournament hosted by Italy alone.

In Florence, Fiorentina President Rocco Commisso has repeatedly vented his frustration in the media at the refusal of politicians to let him invest in building a new stadium or even reconstruct the existing Stadio Artemio Franchi.

Several other nations have confirmed they will also bid to host Euro 2028, including the football associations of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland, who announced the joint United Kingdom and Ireland bid for the tournament.
