U21s a boon to grassroots

We investigate the impact at grassroots level that hosting the 2011 UEFA European Under-21 Championship finals will have in Denmark and also in Israel in 2013.

While the UEFA European Under-21 Championship offers an opportunity for some of Europe's rising stars to showcase their talents, the tournament also provides a window through which to glimpse the best in grassroots football.
