BRATISLAVA – Slovakia is interested in organizing the final match of the UEFA European Conference League in 2023. This information will also be confirmed by the President of the Slovak Football Association, Ján Kováčik. At the same time, he revealed to Šport24.sk how he sees it with our chances of success in the candidacy.
Both Slovaks and Czechs are interested in the final duel, as the Slavia Prague stadium in Eden exists as a venue. Other interested parties should be Israel, Cyprus, Greece and Northern Ireland. “Six more countries are bidding, so UEFA will select a total of seven bidders, including us, as far as I have good information. Sometimes it comes out first, sometimes unfortunately not. We try to be active at this level on a regular basis. Next year we are organizing the European Under-19 Championships in Slovakia, “ let yourself be heard for Šport24.sk Ján Kováčik.
The head of our football believes that the choice of Slovakia could be weighed down by the fact that the infrastructure of stadiums in our country has significantly improved in recent years. Brand new modern arenas have sprung up in Bratislava, Trnava, Dunajská Streda and Trenčín. Several other stalls have been renovated. “We will need to be competent and in case we have to come again as far as possible. As we have always done. Whether it was at the U17 World Championships in 2013 or at the EUFA Congress in 2018. We have been successful many times, so we believe that we will be able to attract the finals of the Confederate League to Slovakia in the foreseeable future, “ stressed the head of our football.
The final match of the first year of the new European club competition in 2022 will be played on May 25 in the Albanian capital Tirana. We have a single participant in this competition. Slovan Bratislava is still in third place after two matches in group F with a total point.
