UEFA has launched a climate fund for UEFA EURO 2024 in Germany (14 June to 14 July 2024).

Major efforts have been made to reduce the environmental impact through the targeted measures and investments laid out in the UEFA EURO 2024 ESG strategy, yet it is inevitable that unavoidable CO2 emissions arise from such a global football event.

UEFA is taking responsibility for these emissions through the creation of the climate fund, which will provide funding for environmental projects run by amateur football clubs in Germany.

For each tonne of CO2 emissions produced in connection with UEFA EURO 2024, €25 will be donated to the climate fund. Based on pre-tournament projections, around €7 million will thus be made available for climate protection projects. German clubs can choose from a set list of projects in the fields of energy, water, waste management and smart mobility.

This significant investment in projects that will mitigate CO2 emissions over the long term will strengthen UEFA EURO 2024's legacy both within the German football community and for the environment.

Funding applications can be made for any sum up to a maximum of €250,000. Clubs only have to raise a minimum of 10% of the requested grant (but no more than €5,000) themselves. A simplified application procedure applies to requests for less than €25,000, and applicants are allowed to combine various smaller projects in a single application. The whole application process has been made as straightforward as possible.
