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.

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.

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.
