Sustainability concept bolsters Germany’s football Euro 2024 bid
The German Football Association (DFB) has included a sustainability concept in its bid to host the 2024 European Football Championship. UEFA is set to select the host country this week. The DFB says it wants the tournament to contribute to achieving Germany’s climate targets and keep environmental impact to a minimum. Awarding the Euro 2024 to the country of the energy transition, or Energiewende, could obligate German football to actually get serious on sustainability, says sport and environment expert Ralf Roth.
