Euro 2024 is around the corner, and sports fans are gearing up to watch the four-week celebration of European football both on screens and in fan-filled arenas.

A total of ten football stadiums across Germany will host the tournament as the best teams from the entire continent fight for the coveted trophy this summer.

From the opening match in Munich to the grand finals in Berlin, find out everything you need to know about the Euro 2024 host cities across Germany.

Munich and Berlin to Host the Opening Match and Final

The big event kicks off on June 14 and will run through July 14, 2024. While the entire country will turn into one major football watch party, ten lucky cities across Germany will get to lend their stadiums to host Europe’s top national teams.

From Hamburg in Northern Germany to Munich in the South and many cities in between, each is gearing up to ensure a vibrant football celebration for the fans and players. As the host, Germany will kick off the event on June 14 in a match against Scotland in Munich’s Allianz Arena.

The home of the renowned FC Bayern Munich Bundesliga team will host three additional group stage matches, one Round-of-16 tie, and one of the semi-finals on July 9. As one of Germany’s football hubs, Munich will be at the heart of Euro 2024 throughout the whole event.

Germany’s capital has the honor of hosting the big final on July 14, where the new European Champion will be crowned. The Olympiastadion will also host major teams during the group stage, including Croatia, the Netherlands, and Spain, which has just revealed a provisional squad for the tournament, and three knockout ties.

Besides Munich, Berlin will be at the center of the celebrations, with Germany’s largest open-air live screening of the event taking place in the capital that will see the iconic Brandenburger Tor turn into the largest football goal in the world.

Ten Stadiums Across Germany Take Part

While Munich and Berlin will get to bookend the event, eight further stadiums across the country will also play their part in the event and turn Germany into one large football celebration.

As listed in the detailed host city overview in Betway’s Euro 2024 travel guide, all of them will host some of the strongest contenders vying for the trophy and ensure memorable experiences for all attendees.

The groups and the fixtures have been set, which will take place in some of Germany’s biggest stadiums in Cologne, Dortmund, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Gelsenkirchen, Hamburg, Leipzig, and Stuttgart.

England fans should keep an eye on Frankfurt’s Waldstadion, where 2021’s semi-final showdown between Denmark and England will see a rematch. German fans will get to see the host’s national team take on Switzerland at Eintracht’s home during the group stages.

Back-to-back finalist Belgium will visit the Hess metropolis as well, and one of the Round-of-16 ties will take place at the Main River.
