Things you ought to know about the UEFA Euro 2020

Tags: EURO 2020, UEFA, UEFA EURO 2020.
Posted on 10 June 2021 by "T".

The 16th edition of the UEFA European Championship, commonly referred to as UEFA Euro 2020, shall be held from June 11 to July 11, 2021 in 11 host cities.

Starting from June 11 to July 11, 2021, the greatest soccer players in the world shall gather together, for the first time in the competition's 60-year history, in 11 host cities for the quadrennial international men's football championship of Europe.

UEFA President Michel Platini stated in 2012 that the tournament would be hosted in many nations as a "romantic" special event to celebrate the 60th "birthday" of the European Championship competition.

The tournament format will be the same as for UEFA Euro 2016. The top two in each of the six final tournament groups will proceed to the round of 16 along with the four best third-placed finishers.

Just like every quadrennial, there's no shortage of football-related stories as the event draws near. Do you feel confident about your favorite team's chances? Did the manager pick the right squad? Who's going to be your star player? How far do you think your team will go?

The host country Italy shall get the party started in Stadio Olimpico in Rome on June 11 against Turkey, and by July 11 a new champion shall be crowned.

Having the biggest capacity of any of the stadiums entered for the competition, the Wembley Stadium in London has been chosen to host the semi-finals and final for the second time, having done so previously at the 1996 tournament.

The Portugal team is the defending champion, as they have won the UEFA Euro 2016 competition.

The video assistant referee (VAR) system shall make its debut in this tournament.

About the UEFA Euro 2020
The UEFA Euro 2020 is a quadrennial international men's football championship of Europe organized by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA).

The final tournament will be held on July 11 at the Wembley Stadium in London.

Overall, 51 matches featuring 24 nations shall be played in 11 stadium venues across several countries.

Three group games, one quarter-final

For the first time in its history, the Euro 2020 tournament will be played in 11 different cities with 11 different cultures. Therefore, the logo makers needed to create a brand that could celebrate diversity while promoting belonging.

They found a symbol that could link all cities and citizens of Europe: the bridge. The bridge forms the base of the logo. It supports the Henri Delaunay Cup that is at the center, surrounded by celebrating fans.

"Live It. For Real." is the official slogan of the tournament. The slogan is meant to encourage fans to see the matches live in the stadiums across Europe.


UEFA announced on November 6, 2019 that the Uniforia by Adidas will be the official match ball of the Euro 2020 tournament. Mostly white, the ball features black strokes with blue, neon and pink stripes. The name is derived from a portmanteau of "unity" and "euphoria".


The UEFA Euro 2020 mascot is Skillzy, a larger-than-life character inspired by freestyling, street and panna culture.

The tournament will be broadcast via radio and television all over the world.

The International Broadcast Centre (IBC) will be located at the Expo Haarlemmermeer in Vijfhuizen, Netherlands.

In the United States, the UEFA Euro 2020 will be aired by ABC, ESPN and Univision.

In the United Kingdom, soccer fans can tune in to BBC and ITV.


Below are the following countries divided into groups A to F:

Group A: Turkey, Italy, Wales, Switzerland
Group B: Denmark, Finland, Belgium, Russia
Group C: Netherlands, Ukraine, Austria, North Macedonia

 shokaku11/06/2021 21:22:22 GMT
The first game is over. The first half was quite typical for an opening game of a tournament, with little risk taken by both teams. After the first goal the dynamic changed. Italy showed why the are one of the favorites to go deep in the tournament, while Turkey was a disappointment. The minute they where forced to open up a bit, they were very vulnerable at the back, while still being harmless up front. This will not be enough to reach the knock out stages.
 geseco1212/06/2021 04:24:14 GMT
On Saturday there will be great games, also this tournament will be of a high level, I think that most of the great footballers are on this continent, now this Europe will be something very special for many.
 dule-vu12/06/2021 10:21:06 GMT
shokaku explained everything is his post!italy was way better on this game and it was just matter of time when they will score firs goal!turkey didnt show almost anything and they just wanted to stay in front of their goal and to finish game with 0:0 result if they can!
if they were good in their qualification group,then try to shot this and play football!
 CALICUL12/06/2021 11:16:12 GMT
This tournament started well in terms of goals, but only one team played. Turkey was incapable to offer too much danger at the gate of Italy. We will see many goals in this Euro 2020 because there are big teams and small teams. In the past, matches were more balanced. I don't like the idea that this tournament takes place in many countries, because a maximum of 1-3 countries would have been enough.
 dule-vu13/06/2021 10:57:14 GMT
what a crazy day yesterday and what nightmare on denmark-finland game!probably nobody cared for football after that!now everything is good,but probably for him career is over!
and then we come for what we talking about here for weeks,that there are just too many games in year and that season is just finished and you have new competition!
 CALICUL13/06/2021 14:34:56 GMT
I lost Saturday's matches and didn't see the video summaries, but i read a little about Russia... how he lost with 3-0 and about that surprise match between Denmark and Finland, where a player it was close to die. Some people say that the covid 19 vaccine is guilty and the Inter Milan bosses are confused in their statements... because that player was vaccinated 12 days ago or it was not.
 geseco1213/06/2021 19:59:15 GMT
Yesterday I was watching the game of Denmark and Finland, and I think everyone already knows, but I was sad to see this player faint suddenly, the world of football was sad, but he has recovered and is fine, but the saddest thing is that I think his football career is over.
 dule-vu14/06/2021 13:24:18 GMT
yesterday we had three normal and good results and all wins of favourites!if we dont count game denamrk finland and everything that happend on that game,till know we had results that everybody would bet before game!we will see what will have today,but so far best game is netherlands and ukraine!
 CALICUL14/06/2021 14:16:24 GMT
to be honest yesterday I bet $ 55 on matches from Finland, Norway etc... but not at euro 2020 due to low odds. I had two winning tickets who recovered my investment with a small profit and
today i bet on Scotland - Czech Republic and other matches from other championships.
 geseco1215/06/2021 03:33:35 GMT
Europe and the American Cup are giving the hour with great games, now Messi played with Argentina and Christian tomorrow with Portugal, these games are exciting, every true soccer fan appreciates seeing these legends play.
 CALICUL15/06/2021 15:22:12 GMT
The best players from world in the last 15 years have more important matches and people must to enjoy with their game. Time passes and their career will end, so it is good that we see them with great pleasure Portugal has an interesting match today and i hope to beat Hungary at the big score difference.
 geseco1216/06/2021 04:56:44 GMT
Today I saw Cristiano's Portuguese match in the euro and in less than 10 minutes to go he scored 3 goals against Hungary, a real madness was that, many sealed the zero to zero, but the opposite happened, that's the most beautiful football that the impossible can happen.
 dule-vu16/06/2021 15:18:26 GMT
if you really watched this game,then you could see that he didnt scored 3 goals,he scored second and third,so he had two goals from first game!
nobody expected that we will see such a late three goals,but whats most important is that ronaldo is now all time best scorer at euro championship,because now he have 11 goals and platini was first till yesterday with 9 goals!
 CALICUL16/06/2021 15:24:19 GMT
your favorite scored two goals, even if was at the end of this match. I am glad that Hungary lost, because it is not a team that attracts in terms of spectacle. This rarely happens and Cristiano Ronaldo's team offers better matches to watch.
 geseco1217/06/2021 05:31:17 GMT
Cristiano Ronaldo is a great player and has shown that he is not only physical but mental, he is an example player to follow, he has also broken all records and continues to break it at that age, this is incredible, I consider him the best player of all the times.
 dule-vu17/06/2021 15:39:03 GMT
you didnt respond to us on our posts about your mistakes with ronaldo!you must read posts that other people write,especially when its about you geseco!
we can see what one "move" from ronaldo can do to such a big company as it is coca cola!now they have big problems,because he moved their bottles and their lost big value as company!
 CALICUL17/06/2021 17:15:13 GMT
I want for Hungary national team who lost the match with 0 - 3, together with own football federation from that country to be penalized, because the Hungarian fans showed obscene signs and racist insults against Cristiano Ronaldo. Such a thing is incredible.
 CALICUL20/06/2021 08:16:42 GMT
France played a match last night in which they failed to beat Hungary, this team that was crushed by Portugal who also lost the match with Germany by two goals difference. The match between the world champion and Cristiano Ronaldo's team will be very interesting. Whoever loses the game will leave the competition
 shokaku20/06/2021 14:04:57 GMT
If Portugal loses the game, there is a great chance that they will be out, but France already has 4 points. That should be enough to see them through, even if they should lose the game against Portugal.
 dule-vu20/06/2021 17:57:03 GMT
ronaldo scored yesterday another goal and now he is on 12 of them and probably he will score more of them!dont think that somebody will be better then him in years that will come!platini had this record for many year,but he had 9,so we ca imagine what kind of player this must be to play on every euro in his career and to score goals on every!
 CALICUL21/06/2021 10:58:01 GMT
You're right Shokaku and i got confused because i wanted to say that whoever loses the match will finish in 3rd place and the risk is a little higher to qualify from this place even with 4 points. I was amused by too much beer, because i celebrated too much the day before and i didn't realize it, even if i knew that the best 4 teams that will finish on the 3rd place will qualify.
 dule-vu21/06/2021 19:48:10 GMT
today I saw pictures on one site,how ronaldo is same as he was 17 years ago when he played in his first euro!they have pictures without jersey from that time and last game against germany and his body is same!but whats most important he is first player that played 5 time on european championships!
 CALICUL22/06/2021 11:00:31 GMT
Denmark had an interesting group because they lost the first two matches, but qualified from the second place after a victory at 3 goals difference with Russia. Ukraine lost the match with Austria and i lost my bet ticket. Both teams have close values and it was not a definite favorite.
 Rocio2509/08/2021 16:56:55 GMT
It will be a great unforgettable event when the best players meet after 60 years of the European championship competition, and what we must know is that the host will be Italy, which will start the party that is great to see everyone there gathered, he also mentions of the logos to be able to create a brand to celebrate diversity and postponed to promote belonging.
 CALICUL09/08/2021 17:23:36 GMT
Euro 2024 will be organized by Germany.

Italy has shown that it is strong team, even after the group stage. He had 3 matches of 120 minutes, where he beat Austria but also with Spain and England where he won with penalties. It's not easy and she was lucky. This national team it can have an even more beautiful future.
