A special summer of European football and culture awaits

It’s the first time England has hosted senior international tournament football since 1996. We’re looking forward to recreating the sense of unity and excitement of EURO ’96 during the summer of 2020.

Rio Ferdinand, Tournament Ambassador

“The UEFA EURO have been responsible for some of the most iconic moments in football history and I can’t wait to see more take place at Wembley and across Europe next summer.

Whether it’s through applying for tickets or the volunteering programme, you don’t want to miss the chance to ‘Be Part of It”

This will truly be a festival of football for everyone across the country as well as visitors. Everyone will have the chance to feel part of the experience, whether you’re a volunteer, a football fan, or simply for the experience of attending such a unique tournament.

You only have to look back at the FIFA World Cup 2018 to see the impact a major tournament has on the country. Communities were galvanised and fan zones, pubs, parks and gardens across the country came alive with activity.

A special summer of European football and culture awaits. How can you be part of the experience?

  • Sign-up to take part in the nation’s biggest small-sided football festival - THE FA FIVES.  The FA has launched THE FA FIVES –  a family-friendly five-a-side festival taking place across the country in May and June, offering thousands of people the chance to celebrate and enjoy UEFA EURO 2020 before the tournament kicks off in Rome on 12 June. It is completely free to enter and with 15 participant categories on offer, there’s an opportunity for everyone to be part of it. Find out more and sign up your team before 23 April 2020!

  • UEFA EURO 2020 Volunteer programme. 1300 amazing Volunteers will play a huge part in the delivery of the tournament at Wembley Stadium. Applications for the UEFA EURO 2020 volunteer programme closed in 2019, with over 2000 interviews taking place to find our fantastic team of enthusiastic and passionate volunteers. We can’t wait to see the team in action in June-July 2021.
