The Euro 2028 European Championships look set to be coming to Ireland.
It has been confirmed that the Irish and UK joint bid for the tournament is to be unopposed.
Two stadiums on the island of Ireland are to be used as part of the tournament.
The Aviva Stadium will be renamed the Dublin Arena for the competition, while the yet-to-be-redeveloped Casement Park in Belfast will also be used.
Stadiums in England, Scotland and Wales will also host games.
When the bid was formally submitted, a plan suggested Euro 2028 would raise €3 billion for Ireland's economy - while there are plans to invest €50 million in soccer here.
Dublin was due to host games at Euro 2020, which was held in 2021 because of the pandemic, but the games had to be moved due to restrictions.
It is unknown yet whether the host countries will automatically qualify for the finals.
The tournament is expected to be the highest attended European Championships ever.
The exclusion of Croke Park is down to the way the UEFA process works, Minister of State for Sport Thomas Byrne has previously said.
Asked if Croke Park lost out to Casement Park, Minister Byrne said this was not the case.
"We wanted Croke Park and the Aviva, but actually from a UEFA point of view it's felt that two [stadiums] in a city the size of Dublin wouldn't be ideal for the bid," he said.
"We did push hard to go for the two in Dublin, but it was decided ultimately that we wouldn't proceed with Croke Park.
"That's simply to do with the way the UEFA process works, the way they look at it," he added.
