UEFA has announced that the UK and Ireland will co-host EURO 2028. Glasgow is one of nine host cities, with the tournament running for approximately 4 weeks in the summer of 2028. The Scottish Government has launched a public consultation about proposed legislation for EURO 2028 in Scotland. The proposals would restrict street trading and advertising in designated event zones, and also seek to combat ticket touting. We want to hear from businesses that operate in and around potential event zones, as well as people living in these areas. Glasgow Life will also host drop-in sessions on 11 June (17:00-19:00) and 13 June (09:30-11:30) at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, where you can find out more and share your views.
