UEFA Euro 2024

What are the Euro 2024 dates?

As Euro 2024 approaches, all eyes are on Germany, the sole host for this year’s event. Anticipation is high for what promises to be one of the largest and most thrilling European Championships yet. This upcoming championship marks the 17th iteration of the European Championship, with powerhouses Spain and Germany winning the title three times each.

Italy emerged victorious in the previous tournament in 2021, triumphing over England in a memorable penalty shootout to secure their second European Championship. The COVID-19 pandemic necessitated a one-year postponement of the competition, adding to the anticipation surrounding this year’s event.

Knowing the group stage draw and the playoff winners, attention turns to the favorites and potential surprises of Euro 2024. While England’s formidable roster, boasting talents like Jude Bellingham and Harry Kane, positions them as front-runners, contenders like Germany and France remain in close pursuit.

Les Blues, led by the electrifying Kylian Mbappe, showcases a wealth of talent across the pitch. On the other hand, Germany, despite recent tournament setbacks, benefits from home advantage and a skilled lineup.

However, the tournament isn’t without its dark horses. Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal and Spain, navigating a transition period, add intrigue to the competition. Italy, Belgium, and the Netherlands also pose serious threats with their energetic style of play. With such a competitive field, Euro 2024 promises to deliver exhilarating matches and unpredictable outcomes on the global stage.

When does the tournament begin?

Group play at the UEFA European Championship kicks out on June 14 and continues for the whole month; on June 29, the tournament moves into the knockout round, which starts with the Round of 16.

The top two teams from each of the six groups, along with the four best third-place teams, earn a spot in the knockout stages. On July 14, the tournament will come to an end with the final in Berlin.
