Ministers will today sign off on a joint bid for Ireland and the UK to host Euro 2028.
Ireland is pitching to co-host the soccer tournament alongside England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
UEFA's deadline for formal bids is tomorrow with government sources confident the bid will be successful.
If the bid is successful, it's expected Ireland would host seven games between the Aviva Stadium and Croke Park in Dublin.
It's expected the Aviva stadium would only require minor upgrading, but it's thought some work would need to be done to Croke Park.
Minister for Sport, Jack Chambers, met with colleagues from across the UK and Ireland to discuss the bid last week. Minister Chambers brought a memo to cabinet today alongside Minister Catherine Martin.
The memo will outline the economic impact of hosting the tournament, which is estimated would attract 120,000 people to Ireland with a boost to the economy in the hundreds of millions of euro range.
Ministers believe there's a strong chance of success, with Turkey the only rival to host the second biggest tournament in football.
