NAfter the corona-related cancellation in 2020, the time has come: the European Football Championship will take place from June 11th to July 11th. 24 national teams are fighting for the title at Uefa Euro 2020 (as it is officially still called).
For the first time in the history of Uefa, the tournament will be held decentrally, i.e. not in just one host country. The schedule includes 51 games in eleven different countries. In order not to lose track of the many kick-off times and venues, you will find the full schedule as well as information on groups and results here.

EM quarters in Herzogenaurach
During the European Championship, the German national team will be based in Herzogenaurach, Franconia. The EM quarter consists of 15 residential units, each with space for four players. The area is laid out in the style of Campo Bahia from the 2014 World Cup – next to the accommodations there is a kind of marketplace that serves as a meeting point. In the video we present the EM quarter in detail:
EM stadiums with spectators despite Corona
Uefa boss Aleksander Ceferin rejects ghost games at the EM. He demanded from all venues that the cities should make commitments for at least partial admission of viewers despite the corona pandemic. Therefore, Dublin and Bilbao were deleted as venues, as Uefa executive member Zbigniew Boniek announced on Twitter.
The games have been moved to Seville and Saint Petersburg. In Bilbao, the local organizers had previously announced that Uefa had withdrawn the games planned there. The teams from Poland, Sweden and Slovakia therefore have to commute between Russia and Spain in the group stage.
European Championship games in Germany: Munich remains the venue
Munich remains the venue for the European Championship and does not lose a game. The Uefa Executive Committee in Nyon (Switzerland) decided that the city would keep the games as originally planned and that both the group games of the German national team and a quarter-final match should take place in the FC Bayern arena.
The decisive factor was that there was still a positive signal from Munich. At the last minute, the government of the Free State of Bavaria gave its approval to the “EM lead scenario”, which requires a “minimum capacity of 14,500 viewers”. “Everything is subject to the pandemic situation,” said State Chancellor Florian Herrmann (CSU).
These are the games in Munich:
- June 15, group stage: Germany versus France
- June 19, group stage: Germany versus Portugal
- June 23, group stage: Germany versus Hungary
- July 2nd: quarter-finals
The other venues of the EM: London, Baku, Rome, Glasgow, Saint Petersburg, Copenhagen, Seville, Amsterdam, Budapest, Bucharest.
24 teams meet in a total of 51 games at the European Championship. After the draw on November 30, 2019 in Bucharest, however, not all participants were certain. The last four teams – Hungary, Slovakia, Scotland and North Macedonia – did not qualify until the European Championship playoffs in autumn 2020 and were then assigned to the groups retrospectively.
Results of the test matches
Shortly before the start of the European Championship, the German team traditionally played two test matches in order to test their form and possible line-up. While the friendly against Denmark ended in a draw (1-1), the DFB team won against Latvia with a 7-1 victory against Latvia.
02.06.2021 (9 p.m.) in Innsbruck: Germany – Denmark (1: 1)
07.06.2021 (8:45 p.m.) in Düsseldorf: Germany – Latvia (7: 1)
