The UEFA Festival is taking the passion and the excitement of EURO onto the streets of Baku. So, whether you're a local or a travelling fan, whether it's your first EURO or if you have lost count, we hope as you travel through Baku, you enjoy a UEFA Festival atmosphere.
You don't need a ticket to join the party – all UEFA Festival activities are free!
Baku have created a visual spectacular to offer each matchday a bespoke show link to the nations playing that given day. Closer to the stadium, drummers and an orchestra will take the build-up to another level as you get closer to the stadium.
🌟 Baku Spectacular
Baku's Heydar Aliyev Centre, located in the heart of Baku, will be illuminated at night with a spectacular visual experience on one of the most famous landmarks in the city.
The visuals projected through each night will be a celebration of football's past and present of both nation's playing that day at Baku Olympic Stadium, one to please travelling fans for sure.
While visiting the Heydar Aliyev Centre will offer the best experience, its sheer size will be visible from most fan areas and popular walking routes in the city.
Let me give you a top tip
Make sure to add Heydar Aliyev Centre to your walking route after your evening meal or after you've enjoyed a EURO 2020 matchday.
The Volkswagen EURO 2020 Map on the official EURO 2020 App is the best place to plan possible routes.
