infrastructure but football mad turkey is desperate to host in two thousand and twenty four having made fail for the last three tournaments. and we have to now from deed of you sports to fill us in as we wait for that vote today good morning press morning press this is one of the biggest sporting events on the planet how many people are going to be watching you do the math for me twenty four nations over fifty one games you're talking millions upon millions might even reach over a billion viewers this go round considering all of the different platforms as you mentioned the vote will take place today germany has the upper hand they were favored we do have a report previewing the choice let's take a look. euro twenty twenty four is set to be a footballing spectacle twenty four countries competing in a total of fifty one games but who will host the prestigious event germany are regarded as frontrunners you wafers of valuation committee has already backed the
bid the german football association see this as a chance to follow up on the success of the two thousand and six world cup and they're clear on the benefits of their bid. we have the stadia the infrastructure the accommodation we also have great fan zones we're basically ready to host the euros tomorrow. but as shadow looms over germany's bid the measured feel of fact the arsenal midfielder is meeting with turkish president richard tired after one caused an uproar that eventually ended in retiring from the germany national team he accused the german football association of racism and discrimination. could that be an advantage for turkey the country is confident its bid can stand on its own turkey's footballing culture its modern stadia and even president add to one's passion for the game. after three unsuccessful bids this one is meant to
click. around everyone can see we're ready to host the iraqis we love football we deserve to be the host of. football's been played in turkey for over one hundred years it's part of our lives here. but financial instability and the drop of the lira could put turkey's bid and potential profits in jeopardy. europe's governing body has sent out mixed signals they have set clear requirements including on matters such as human rights and freedom of expression on the other hand you a for expects huge tax breaks from the hosts. its executive committee is made up of twenty members. the german and turkish representatives can't vote. one member netherlands prague has publicly thrown his support behind turkey.
in case of a stalemate you wait for president alexandre shuttering will break the tie some think he will lean towards germany as it stands it's all up in the yap the only certainty for the bid for euro two thousand and twenty four is going to be a close race. on just how close is going to be trust is this a tight race right now according to usa for valuation germany has the edge here they do have the edge you know there they were given praise for its inspiration all creative and very professional vision and in history when you factor that in you know we heard the reports that they've hosted turkey has never hosted a major tournament i think that works against them in that instance and one thing i want to point out the president of the way for the way for alexander separate who is the type breaking vote he made one thing clear the economic economical side is absolutely crucial and when you talk about capacity more people can fit in the stadiums in germany in turkey so in the money matters that's another reason you
lean towards kerry so there's more tickets being sold of course it's money ok now that turkey has been rejected as so many times simply based on that shouldn't shouldn't it be the charts you know they recently were awarded the twenty twenty. and many believe that consolation setting them up for this rejection that potentially could take place later this morning in switzerland in terms of the vote you know but one thing is working in turkey's favor though they are willing to give the stadiums rent free to you wave of close to a small fee you know the german stadiums are ready to pony up but human rights issues as we heard the report is a factor that is supposed to be considered by the seventeen members that do have a vote and i think if you've been paying attention to current headlines tends. to crack down and the reprise. their report giving germany the edge in us was report was since surged in turkey as well as the desolate good either and i'm sure that
all of the executive committee members have caught wind of that as well so i think all of these will be factored in and if i were a betting man i would say germany will host the two thousand and twenty four year ok you know the background the political background you mentioned between the two countries played out on the soccer pitch the football pitch as well the mesut ozil claims of discrimination here in germany could that be a factor we saw we saw that mentioned our report you know the only executive member to speak out today actually voiced their support of turkey has been the netherlands you know i think this is in the back of people's heads you know but the world cup with football currently restarted on several platforms that might be an old issue you know i haven't seen name in the headlines much and i don't think it'll be much of a factor to be honest with you ok well you will be covering the vote in switzerland will have press in the rest of you sports crew here in berlin for updates chris thanks very much ok. well as that vote takes place turkey's president i should
tell you want is visiting germany today ties between the two countries as we just heard are strained over a number of issues however he says he wants to turn over a new leaf security throughout berlin right now this morning ahead of his arrival is at a rare level one now that's a level reserve usually for the american president or israeli prime minister for example large parts of lynn city center are closed off during this three day visit protests are planned in berlin five thousand extra police officers will be on the streets over the coming days. in our next report we look at how relations between ankara and berlin have become so start. this handshake is nothing more than a photo op to politicians who are unlikely to become friends turkish president to one loves pomp and circumstance and he's considered quick tempered. america on the other hand is said to be
a serious humble politician who loves harmony. it's a relationship that's certainly not based on great personal friendship but more on the knowledge that the political relations of the two countries are very important and must be maintained it's certainly not a marriage of love. and in the spring of two thousand and seventeen relations were at a low point the german government refused to allow air to one's party to hold election campaign events in germany the furious turkish president responded by playing the nazi card. question about you right now and you. are using nazi methods against whom against my turkish brothers and sisters who live in germany i'm against all ministers and deputies who travel in. america was calm and objective in her response like lace it up with these comparisons between the federal republic of germany and national socialism must cease they are unworthy of
the close ties and relations we've built up between the people of germany and turkey politically as nato partners socially and economically the chancellor is also concerned about the human rights situation in turkey tens of thousands of heir to one critics have been imprisoned including german journalists friends relatives and the german government are campaigning for their release. but ere the one is gradually transforming back into a serious partner his country is in the midst of an economic crisis urgently needs german aid and is increasingly isolated because of its foreign policy so turkey is now signaling a willingness to compromise with germany. is you looking they are moving closer together after last year's flare up and the more difficult years preceding that but their relationship will nevertheless remain strained because the issues that led up to the separation and that is above all domestic policy in
turkey won't change very quickly. and yet both germany and turkey know that this is far more than a marriage of convenience. this is news let's get a look at some of the other stories making the news today a british online best to get a grip there's a russian man accused of poisoning a former russian spy and a his daughter solsbury is a military officer who received the military honor from president vladimir putin twenty fourteen the website belling cut says the suspect his passport name was response is in fact colonel honestly. thousands of palestinians have demonstrated on the border between israel and the gaza strip they burned tires and hurled rocks at israeli forces who responded with tear gas gazans have staged weekly demonstrations since late march calling for an end to the israeli egyptian blockade that has crippled gaza caught up. while later today in the u.s.
