Fans can look forward to an extensive supporting programme. This includes screenings, the big opening concert and numerous other events.

The perfect setting for fans, Berliners and guests to roll out the green grass instead of the red carpet. From 14 June to 14 July, the Straße des 17. Juni will become a playing field, a pop-up park and, of course, the perfect meeting place for all sports fans and football enthusiasts. The capital is expecting a total of 1.5 million fans. Be part of this unforgettable event and enjoy the very special atmosphere in Berlin in the summer of 2024!

Finals of the UEFA EURO 2024 in Berlin

It is the first time since reunification that Germany will be hosting Europe's biggest football tournament in 2024. This gives the UEFA EURO finals in Berlin on 14 July 2024 at 9 pm a special significance.  As the host country, Germany is automatically qualified and will thus take part in the EURO finals for the 14th time in a row since 1972. The DFB team has already won the title three times, in 1972, 1980 and at the EURO 1996. Whether it will be successful again this time will be decided in the preliminary rounds, which will be held between the 24 finalists from 14 June onwards.

Motto for UEFA EURO 2024

Also in Berlin, the logo for EURO 2024 was unveiled, which unites the colours of all European member associations in a multicoloured radiant circle around the cup. Under the motto "United by Football - United in the Heart of Europe", EURO 2024 will symbolise "that we are united and friends in Europe", said UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin. Football is about friendship, good values and uniting different cultures. The organising team is also committed to sustainability.
