  • The draw for Euro 2024 will be held in Frankfurt, Germany, on October 9.
  • Germany qualifies directly to Euro 2024 and thus will not be included in the tournament draw.

  • 53 teams will be divided into 10 groups, (7 groups of 5 teams – 3 groups of 6 teams)

The final will be held at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on July 14, 2024.

The tournament matches will be held in 10 different stadiums in the cities of Berlin, Hamburg, Leipzig, Dortmund, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Cologne, Gelsenkirchen, Munich and Stuttgart.
