Where will the Euros be held?

The Euros will take place in Germany, which was selected to be the host nation in September 2018.

Germany (as West Germany) has held the tournament once before, in 1988, when the Netherlands took the title.

Germany has also staged the World Cup on two occasions, most recently in 2006 when Marcello Lippi's Italy became world champions for the fourth time.

When does the Euros take place?

The Euros will begin on Friday 14th June, with hosts Germany earmarked to play the opening game of the tournament at the home of Bayern Munich, the Allianz Arena.

The tournament will conclude with the final, at Berlin's Olympiastadion, which will take place on Sunday 14th July.

What is the schedule for the Euros?

The group stage starts with Germany's first match on Friday, 14th June, and concludes with the final round of matches in Group E and Group F, which will take place 12 days later on Wednesday, 26th June.

The last-16 matches are due to be staged from 29th June to 2nd July, with two ties taking place each day, then the four quarter-finals will be played across 5th-6th July.

The first semi-final takes place in Munich on Tuesday 9th July, while Dortmund will host the second semi-final the following day.

The tournament concludes with the final at Berlin's Olympiastadion on Sunday, 14th July.

Which stadiums are being used at the Euros?

The following ten stadiums will host at least one match at the Euros:

Olympiastadion, Berlin (final venue)
Allianz Arena, Munich
Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund
MHPArena, Stuttgart
Veltins Arena, Gelsenkirchen
Deutsche Bank Park, Frankfurt
Volksparkstadion, Hamburg
Merkur Spiel-Arena, Dusseldorf
RheinEnergieStadion, Cologne
Red Bull Arena, Leipzig

Nine of the ten stadiums which will host a match were host venues at the 2006 World Cup, while Dusseldorf's Merkur Spiel-Arena has previously hosted matches at the 1974 World Cup and the Euros in 1988.

What is the format for the Euros?

The Euros will follow the same format which was introduced in 2016 and which was also used in the 2020 tournament.

There are six groups and the top two in each group progress to the round of 16, while the four third-placed teams with the best records will also advance to the knockout stages.

Uefa had been considering the prospect of a 32-team tournament from Euro 2028 onwards, but those plans were reportedly scrapped at the beginning of 2023.

Which teams have qualified for the Euros?

As tournament hosts, Germany have been handed a place in the tournament, but the group stage of qualifying is underway and some of the traditional European heavyweights have made a strong start including France, England and Portugal.

Who are the favourites to win the Euros?

England lost out to Italy on penalties in the 2020 final and Gareth Southgate's men are the 5/1 favourites to go one better, having made a strong start to their qualifying campaign.

The Three Lions are joined at the top of the market by World Cup finalists France, who also suffered defeat on penalties, against Argentina in Qatar in 2022. Les Bleus are 5/1 for a third European crown.

Hosts Germany are 11/2 to win the Euros on home soil, with three-time champions Spain 9/1 shots, while Portugal are a 10/1 chance.

Reigning champions Italy, who were recently forced to replace head coach Roberto Mancini with Luciano Spalletti, are 12/1 alongside Belgium.
