The UEFA Executive Committee met today in Vienna and approved the match schedule for the final tournament of UEFA EURO 2024, which will take place across ten cities in Germany from 14 June to 14 July 2024.
The opening game will take place at the Fussball Arena in Munich, and the final will be held at the Olympiastadion in Berlin.
For the first time, sustainability has been included as a criterion in the tournament regulations and, consequently, three clusters of venues have been established: “North/North-East” (Berlin, Hamburg, Leipzig), “West” (Dortmund, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Gelsenkirchen, Cologne) and “South” (Frankfurt, Munich, Stuttgart).
Matches in each group will take place only across two clusters, which will reduce travel distances for teams and fans between the host cities, and favours team delegations travelling by train or bus from their base camps to the match venues during the group stage.
The committee also approved the full tournament regulations which will be available on UEFA.com on 16 May.
Other decisions taken by the UEFA Executive Committee include:
