UEFA Euro 2024 host debut
Germany will host the 2024 UEFA European Football Championship after being selected to host the 17th UEFA European Championship at the UEFA Executive Committee meeting in Nyon on September 27, 2018. Turkey was the only other country to apply to host UEFA EURO 2024. West Germany hosted the 1988 edition, but this will be the first time Germany has hosted the UEFA European Championship since reunification. The 2006 FIFA World Cup was also held in the country.
How many national teams will play at UEFA Euro 2024?
Germany qualified for the finals as hosts, meaning the country will be represented at its 14th consecutive EURO. Germany/West Germany has played at every EURO since 1972. West Germany won the 1972 and 1980 editions, while a reunified Germany triumphed at EURO 1996.
This leaves a total of 23 places in the finals to be filled in the European qualifiers running from March to November 2023 and the play-offs scheduled for March 2024.
What are the qualification rules for UEFA Euro 2024?
The teams are divided into ten groups of five (including those containing the four UEFA Nations League finalists) or six. The national teams play home and away, with the group winners and runners-up advancing directly to the UEFA Euro 2024 finals tournament. The remaining three teams will be determined in a play-off phase involving 12 teams selected on the basis of their performance in the 2022/23 Nations League.
What is the format of UEFA Euro 2024?
The format will be the same as for UEFA EURO 2020, with the top two teams from each of the final tournament's six groups progressing to the 1/8 finals along with the top four third-placed teams.
Where are the UEFA Euro 2024 stadiums located?

Regarded as the cultural heart of the Ruhr district, Dortmund was mainly known for coal, steel and beer 50 years ago, but has transformed into a major technology centre, with a vibrant cultural scene and a rich sporting heritage on display at the German Football Museum. Matches in Dortmund will be played at BVB Stadion Dortmund.
Stuttgart is a major industrial city and home to two of the world's most famous car manufacturers, Mercedes and Porsche, but visitors can also enjoy a rich wine and culinary scene, with Flädlesuppe (pancake soup) at the forefront among the local specialities. Matches in Stuttgart will be played at Stuttgart Arena.
Gelsenkirchen is known for its history of coal mining and steel production, but today visitors will find green spaces, theatres and boat cruises, as well as the industrial heritage of the Ruhr district. Matches in Gelsenkirchen will be played at Arena AufSchalke.
Hamburg, Europe's third-largest city, which is nevertheless not the country's capital, has a world-famous harbour, rich cultural history, impressive architecture and nightlife, making it a 'wish list' city for many tourists. Matches in Hamburg will be played at Volksparkstadion Hamburg.
Cologne, a city steeped in history, is situated on the Rhine River and is home to more than one million inhabitants, as well as the most visited monument in Germany: the Cathedral Church of St Peter, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Matches in Cologne will be played at Cologne Stadium.

The capital of North Rhine-Westphalia, Düsseldorf, has 650,000 inhabitants and more than 250 beer halls and restaurants in the Old Town, which has been dubbed the 'longest bar in the world'. Matches in Düsseldorf will be played at Düsseldorf Arena.
Frankfurt, a global centre of commerce and finance located on the banks of the River Main, is Germany's fifth largest city and its distinctive skyline has earned it the nickname 'Mainhattan'. Matches in Frankfurt will be played at Frankfurt Arena.
Leipzig, once the home of Johann Sebastian Bach, is steeped in culture and history, not least the peaceful demonstrations in 1989, which reflected the mood as Germany moved towards reunification. Matches in Leipzig will be played at Leipzig Stadium.

Euro 2024: Volksparkstadion renovation to begin later this year
We already know all the facilities that will host the upcoming European Championships in 2024. Some of the ten venues selected by UEFA will have to undergo renovation to adapt them to the current requirements. Among them is the largest stadium in Hamburg.
Stuttgart: Expansion of Mercedes-Benz Arena for EURO 2024
The venue of the Bundesliga club VfB Stuttgart is currently undergoing renovation in order to adapt it to the requirements of the 2024 European Championships. The investment, worth around €100 million, will make the stadium even more futuristic.
Euro 2024: Stadiums for the opener and the final selected
The UEFA Executive Committee, meeting in Vienna, has decided that the opening match of the 2024 European Football Championship will take place in Munich. Berlin will host the final. The European football union has also announced the schedule for the tournament, which will be played in Germany.
Germany: Approval for expansion in Frankfurt
Eintracht's stadium will gain 11,000 standing places, making it part of a small group of German 60,000-seat+ stadiums. Approval for the extension of the venue has been granted by the Frankfurt local administration.
Gelsenkirchen: 20 years since inauguration of Veltins Arena!
Today marks a special anniversary for one of the most unique stadiums in Germany. 62,000-seats Veltins Arena, known also as Arena auf Schalke, celebrates 20 years from its official inauguration, hosting 626 events and welcoming more than 32 million visitors so far.
Frankfurt: New mobility concept for Deutsche Bank Park
Sports and transport departments of Frankfurt want to reduce matchday CO2 emissions by enabling fans to forget about their cars and choose comfortable commute instead. This should be particularly appreciated during Euro 2024.
Leipzig: Red Bull Arena to get red and ready soon
Bundesliga runners-up are gradually making their fans’ dream come true, even if it ennoys supporters of other teams. Seats are being replaced with new red ones but that’s just a piece of the major revamp.
Germany: Werder and Bremen save stadium from insolvency
If it wasn't for the joint subsidy, the operating company would go under very soon, possibly even cease to exist. But the crisis has been averted, for now. Both parties joined forces to save the entity.
Hamburg: About HSV losing ground
Not to worry, we don't mean financial collapse, even if HSV are hardly in top form. The club decided to lose rights to the land beneath Volksparkstadion in order to finance renovation ahead of 2024.
Leipzig: Preparations ongoing for Red Bull Arena expansion
Since the land of Saxony will allow spectators from September, RB Leipzig have little time for stadium changes. This summer only part of work will be done in order to expand to 48,000 in 2021.
Germany: Can Stuttgart afford Euro 2024 redevelopment?
The condition was simple: VfB had to ascend back to the Bundesliga in order to secure funding for itself and the city. But despite having won promotion, neither the club, nor the city, nor the stadium operator have the funds. Why? COVID-19.
