The Turkey Football Federation Chief Yildirim Demiroren told reporters at their headquarters "This time it is our right to host the championships." Brushing the threats and concerns over security and infrastructure Turkey confirms interest to host the 2024 European Championships. On the 15th February the TFF announced their ambitionsÂ bid toÂ be the host nation of this much-loved tournament.
The Turkish Football Federation announce being candidates to host the 2024 Euros. After losing out to stage the finals in 2008, 2012 and 2016 as well as disappointingly missing out on hosting the 2020 Summer Olympics to Tokyo, Turkey deserved to be announced as hosts, but is it the right decision?
So, can Turkey host the 17th edition of the UEFA European Championship? When announcing an end to its p
The 2016 UEFA European Championship won't get underway until June 10th of next year. As of early December, though, the group stage draws for the tournament are set. With 24 teams spread across six groups, which countries will rise and which will fall in the first round of this prestigious football tournament? Read on to check out our predictions for each of the six groups.
The Group: A
The Teams: France, Romania, Albania, Switzerland
The Likely Outcome: France are the natural frontrunners here. In addition to being the tournament hosts, France are also the only soccer team in this group that have won a previous European Championship title-let alone two. France won in both 1984 (also at a tournament they hosted) and 2000 and have had a fairly

The Turkey national football team has a unique history in the annals of the UEFA European Championship. The team has only qualified for three Euro events over the course of the tournament's 55-year history. However, of those three appearances, the Turkish side made quite a splash in two of them, reaching the quarterfinals in 2000 and reaching a podium position (third place) in 2008. Can Turkey qualify for Euro 2016 and put on another strong performance, or will they miss out on qualification for the second Euro event in a row?
Right now, the odds seem to be leaning in the latter direction for the wearers of the Turkey football jersey. Despite a 1-0 win over Kazakhstan in a June 12th

The Turkey national football side, like most other national soccer teams, will be taking a competitive breather until March 2015. The break comes in the middle of Turkey's quest to qualify for the 2016 UEFA European Championship. An appearance in that legendary tournament would be only the fourth for the Turkish team. However, the squad is going to have to heat things up in 2015 if there is going to be any chance of the Turkey football shirt appearing at Euro 2016.
In other words, if you want to see the Crescent-Stars manage a qualification into UEFA's biggest cup event, then now is the time to purchase a new Turkey home jersey 2014 2015 and show your support. You can find this football shirt on Soccer Box, in addition to the Turkish away jersey for 2014 2015. The country's footballers will wear both versions of the shirt for the remainder of the European qualifying rounds.
The Qualification Run so Far

The Turkey national soccer team has an interesting history at the World Cup. Of the 19 World Cup tournaments on the books, the red and white colors of the Turkey football shirt have only made two appearances. The first of those came in 1954, when the Turkish team was eliminated in the first round of its inaugural tournament appearance. The second occurred in 2002, when Turkey somewhat inexplicably made it to the semifinals and came in third place, toppling some major soccer heavyweights along the way.
Unfortunately for fans of the Turkey national team, there won't be an opportunity for similar upsets at this summer's World Cup in Brazil. Turkey continued its streak of missed qualifications and will not be appearing at all in the World Cup. However, the team is already preparing for its next phase, which is the qualification for the 2016 European Championships in France. In fact, the Turkey home jersey 2014 2015 that player's will wear for that campaign is already available
