european football championship 2024

The 2024 UEFA European Football Championship final tournament will be the seventeenth European Championships and will be held in Germany between 14 June and 14 July 2024.

Host selection

On 8 March 2017, UEFA announced that only two countries, Germany and Turkey, had announced their intentions to host the tournament before the deadline of 3 March 2017. At the UEFA Executive Committee meeting on 27 September 2018 in Nyon, Switzerland, Germany secured 12 votes to Turkey's four votes with one abstention.


53 UEFA members entered the qualification tournament for the 2024 UEFA European Football Championship with Germany qualifying automatically as hosts.

Russia were banned from competing due to their suspension from FIFA and UEFA following the Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022.

The draw for the final tournament was held on 9 October 2022 in Frankfurt, Germany with Wales in the second pot of seeds and were drawn into Group D alongside Croatia, Armenia, Turkey and Latvia.
