After the draw on December 2nd, the second sales phase begins on December 4th. This time tickets are allocated via the national associations of the participating teams. UEFA is once again providing one million tickets and an exchange event will also be offered from April. A last-minute sale will start on June 4, 2024, which will also include tickets for the finals.
The Euros run from June 14 to July 14, 2024 and it will take place in ten different stadiums across the country (Berlin, Cologne, Dortmund, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Gelsenkirchen, Hamburg, Leipzig, Munich, Stuttgart). This is the first time Germany has been the sole host of a major torunmentment since 2006, which was an iconic tournament for many reasons: for many Germans, it was the first time they felt comfortable waving the national flag and it’s remembered fondly as a time of unity, passion and commonly held anger with Italy (a feeling clearly shared by the legendary French captain Zinedine Zidane, who was sent off in the final for head-butting Marco Materazzi).
