The 2015 UEFA European Under-21 Championship tournament review is now available to download. The book contains detailed analysis of this summer's tournament in the Czech Republic, as well as a full record of the commercial and organisational aspects that made the event such a success.

The story of Sweden's first triumph at Under-21 level is recounted in the Technical report, which includes a profile of the winning coach Håkan Ericson, examining his meticulous planning which led to victory against Portugal in the final in Prague.

The tournament's main technical topics and talking points are also addressed, including the evolving role of the central midfielder and striker, the trend away from possession play and the myriad challenges facing coaches at this level.

The Event report focuses on the hard work done behind the scenes from an organisational point of view that resulted in the championship's success, emphasising in particular the efforts of the Football Association of the Czech Republic (FAČR) and the legacy hosting the U21 EURO leaves behind. 

The contribution of the sponsors in supporting and promoting the tournament gets special mention, as does as the importance of the broadcasting and communications teams in ensuring the action reached a worldwide audience.
