Every 4 years, the title of European football champion is put at stake in a tournament with 24 teams. They all passed the preliminary rounds of the tournament and are now part of a total of 6 groups. The current title holder is Portugal who managed to win against l’Equipe De France in 2016, this game attracted more than 284 million spectators around the world, making it the second most-attended match in the history of football.
The first edition of UEFA EURO dates back to 1960 which was originally called the European Nations Cup.
This UEFA Euro 2020 is very special because following the example of Euro 2000 (Belgium/Netherlands), 2008 (Switzerland/Austria) and 2012 (Poland/Ukraine), UEFA took the decision to organise the match in several countries. For the 60th anniversary of the competition, the organisers wanted a “big party for Europe”. As a result, a total of 12 countries will host matches in one city in each of these countries:
England/London, Azerbaijan/Baku, Denmark/Copenhagen, Germany/Munich, Hungary/Budapest, Italy/Rome, Netherlands/Amsterdam, Republic of Ireland/Dublin, Romania/Bucharest, Russia/St. Petersburg, Scotland/Glasgow, Spain/Bilbao.
The opening match of the competition will be held at the Olympic Stadium in Rome on June 12.
