The 2020 European Championships will take place from Friday 11th June – Sunday 11th July 2021.

All 51 matches will be broadcast between the BBC and ITV as 24 teams play across 11 host cities for a place in the final, which will be held at Wembley Stadium.

The tournament was originally to be played at 13 venues but two hosts were later removed: Brussels in December 2017 due to delays with the building of the Eurostadium, and Dublin in April 2021 as there was no guarantee that spectators could attend.

Spain changed their host city from Bilbao to Seville to allow an audience at matches.

Portugal are the defending champions, having won the 2016 competition. The video assistant referee (VAR) system will make its debut at the European Championship in this tournament.
