Germany wants to unite people hosting soccer's Euro 2024

GENEVA (AP) Germany wants to host the 2024 European Championship and bring people closer together amid populist waves across the continent.

Believing sports can be a positive force in political debate, German soccer federation president Reinhard Grindel told The Associated Press on Monday, "This is what a Euro can deliver."

Rival candidates Germany and Turkey give their bid documents to UEFA this week. UEFA will choose a winner in September.
