Iñigo Urkullu has participated in the Forum Economic Expectations, held in Bilbao, which will be one of the twelve venues of the European Football Championship that will be held next year. Specifically, it will host the three games of Spain in the group stage and then one of the round of 16. The lehendakari has eluded to pronounce on whether he will support any team in particular during the championship, following the "distorted jokes" that occurred in the 2008 Eurocup when he said he "was in favor of Russia." "I said it, but first I said that my selection is Basque and that, as I could not participate, among those who were, I advocate for the best game, and at that time it was Russia," he said.
On this occasion, he recalled that he will not be able to compete in the Basque team, whose official status is still "working", so he has said he hopes "the best wins."
