Euro 2020 kicks off in 2021!
Euro 2020, the 16th edition of the flagship UEFA competition, is being styled as a celebration, with games being held across Europe to mark the 60th anniversary of the first ever tournament (though it will strictly be 61 years).
The 16th edition of the European Championship will provisionally kick off on June 11, 2021 and it will conclude on July 11, 2021.
It will be held across 11 different cities in Europe, with UEFA celebrating the 60th birthday of the first European Championship (then called the European Nations Cup), which was held in France in 1960.
The semi-finals and final will be contested in London at Wembley Stadium.
Euro 2020 features 24 teams – 20 from automatic qualification and the remaining four decided through the play-offs.
The format for the final tournament will be the same as Euro 2016, making for six groups comprised of four teams.
The winner and runner-up in each group, along with the four best third-placed sides, will progress to the round of 16.
Euro 2020: Match ball, mascot & slogan
The Uniforia ball, designed by Adidas, will serve as the match ball for all Euro 2020 matches.
The ball is mostly white and includes multi-coloured black strokes with additional blue, neon and pink stripes.
The name of the ball is taken from the combination of the words “unity” and “euphoria”.
