With just three weeks left in the bidding process Germany is the only nation to bid for Euro 2024 hosting rights.

Germany are the only bidders for the Euro 2024 tournament with just three weeks left until a bid deadline by the ruling body UEFA, its president Aleksander Ceferin said Thursday.

Ceferin said after a UEFA executive committee meeting he knows of no other bidders but added "I hope someone else will join" as several candidates were better for the bid process.

The UEFA deadline is March 3.

Turkey, which lost against France for Euro 2016, could be another candidate; and the Nordic nations of Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden are pondering a joint bid for 2024 or 2028.

The German football federation DFB had formally agreed last month to bid for the tournament. Ceferin said he yet to receive the German bid but that the country had "good infrastructure" to host the 24-team event.
