UEFA Euro 2024

The 2024 UEFA European Football Championship, commonly referred to as UEFA Euro 2024 or simply Euro 2024, will be the 17th edition of the UEFA European Championship, the quadrennial international men's football championship of Europe organized by UEFA. Germany will host the tournament in June and July 2024.
It would be the third time that European Championship matches are played in German territory and the second time in reunified Germany: the former West Germany hosted the tournament of 1988, and four matches of the multi nation Euro 2020, due to be held in 2021, are scheduled to be played in Munich. However, it would be the first time the competition is held in the former East Germany with Leipzig as a host city.

Bid process

On 8 March 2017, UEFA announced that only two countries, Germany and Turkey, had announced their intentions to host the tournament before the deadline of 3 March 2017.
The host was selected on 27 September 2018 in Nyon, Switzerland.

The UEFA Executive Committee voted for the host in a secret ballot, with only a simple majority required to determine the host. In the event of a tie, the UEFA President would cast the decisive vote. Of the twenty members of the Executive Committee, two were ineligible to vote and one was absent, leaving a total of seventeen voting members.


As hosts, Germany qualified for the tournament automatically. The 23 remaining spots will be determined through qualifying, with the group stage taking place from March to November 2023, and the play-offs linked with the 2022–23 UEFA Nations League in March 2024. The qualifying draw is expected to take place in December 2022.

Qualified teams


Germany had a wide choice of stadia that satisfied UEFA's minimum capacity requirement of 40,000 seats for European Championship matches.
Nine venues used at the 2006 FIFA World Cup were selected: Berlin, Dortmund, Munich, Cologne, Stuttgart, Hamburg, Leipzig, Frankfurt and Gelsenkirchen. Düsseldorf, which was not used in 2006 but had previously been used for the 1974 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 1988, will serve as a 10th venue; conversely, Hanover, Nuremberg and Kaiserslautern, host cities in 2006, will not be used for this championship.
Bremen's Weser-Stadion, Mönchengladbach's Borussia-Park, Hanover's Niedersachsenstadion, Nuremberg's Max-Morlock-Stadion and Kaiserslautern's Fritz-Walter-Stadion were not selected. The venues covered all the main regions of Germany but the area with the highest number of venues at UEFA Euro 2024 is the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, with 4 of the 10 host cities there.


The final tournament draw will take place in December 2023. The format used in 2016 and 2020 will be retained.
