UEFA Euro 2024 Format

The UEFA Euro 2024 tournament will feature 24 national teams competing in a month-long tournament to determine the European champions. The format will be the same as for UEFA EURO 2020 – the top two teams from each group of four will qualify for the round of 16, along with the four best third-place teams. The tournament will then follow a one-leg knock-out format until the champion is crowned in the final on July 14th in Berlin.


UEFA Euro 2024 Anthem

The Euro 2024 official song, also known as the tournament anthem, captures the essence of the championship as a whole and evokes feelings of excitement and passion among soccer fans around the world. Italian DJ group Meduza, American pop-rock stars OneRepublic, and German pop icon Kim Petras have come together to create the track. The song is expertly crafted to merge the “Italian group’s much-loved anathematic house production, OneRepublic’s compelling soundscapes, and Petra’s pop expertise” into an anthem that can be danced or sung along to in stadiums or living rooms. It also acts as a celebration for fans of music and soccer alike.


UEFA Euro 2024 Adidas Ball

The official Adidas Euro 2024 ball is known as Fussballliebe, which is German for ‘love of football’. The design incorporates illustrations of each of the stadiums being used for the tournament featured on the ball, alongside the name of each host city. The sustainable make-up of the ball is created from layers of corn fibers, sugar cane, and wood pulp, alongside rubber, recycled paper, and water-based ink. The creators have masterfully curated a ball made from more bio-based materials than any other previous Adidas match ball in history! The ball will also use Adidas’ connected ball technology to send data in real time to officials, helping to produce faster offside and handball decisions.


Key Players & Teams

The UEFA Euro 2024 tournament will showcase some of the world’s best talent in European football, with legends and rising stars representing their respective national teams on the grandest stage.
