About Euro 2020
Euro 2020 will be the 60th birthday of the much-loved and world-famous tournament and organisers were keen to mark the occasion by doing something special. That’s why there is no host nation but, instead, football will be played in 12 countries and across 12 host cities where the original list of 24 teams will be whittled down to just two for the final in London between 11 June and 11 July.
Portugal enter as the defending champions having come out on top in 2016 and after a successful build-up, they will believe they have what it takes to successful defend their crown. Challenges will come from the likes of Germany, Spain, England, Italy and Belgium, amongst others. The latest renewal promises to be the most competitive in recent years and the fact the competition had to be postponed for a year only helped build the drama. Fans will now welcome the return of a major footballing competition with open arms.
This will be the first European Championship where video assistant referee, popularly known as VAR, will be used and that could prove to be a real landmark in the sport. Teams qualified through the traditional method of coming through their qualifying groups, but others joined thanks to the path given to them by the new UEFA Nations League competition. Teams winning their Nations League were added to a Euro 2020 playoff and this is something that is expected to be a permanent fixture in major competitions like the Euros and World Cup going forward.
Euro 2020 format
When the European Championships get going in June 2021 the group stage will begin. This consists of pools of teams with the winners and runners up of each set progressing to the last 16. There will also be a chance for the best third-placed teams to move forward. From the round of 16 the tournament becomes knockout football with each game providing a winner for the next round. If a fixture ends in a draw, then extra-time and penalties will be used if needed.
The final played at Wembley Stadium in July will also be played to a finish. If that game ends in a draw, then both teams will play extra-time. If the scoreboard remains level at that point, then penalties will come into play to decide a champion.
