The tournament was due to take place in the summer of 2020, but was postponed by a year due to the outbreak of COVID-19. An updated schedule for the rearranged UEFA EURO 2020 finals has been released, including new dates for England's group-stage matches.
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 2021.
Rio Ferdinand, Tournament Ambassador says “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 be a festival of football for everyone across the country as well as visitors. We want everyone to have the chance to feel part of the experience, whether as 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?
