German FA unveils new Euro 2024 slogan as host countdown continues
The German FA (DFB) has stepped up its campaign to host the 2024 European Championship, launching a "United for Football. United in the heart of Europe" slogan on Tuesday.
Germany and Turkey are competing to host the tournament, with UEFA's executive committee due to make a decision next September.
With the 10 potential host cities -- Berlin, Munich, Dortmund and Gelsenkirchen among them -- already announced, DFB president Reinhard Grindel unveiled the new slogan in a statement on the organisation's official website.
He said: "Football does not exclude, and defeats borders. It unites, and is the reason people of different nationalities and different beliefs from all walks of life come together.
"With our bid, we want to invite all of Europe to Germany for an open and uniting celebration of football."
Germany hosted the European Championship in 1988, and held its most recent major tournament in 2006 when the World Cup was staged.
