The unprecedented winter World Cup means there's a shorter turnaround between major tournaments for UEFA nations and Euro 2024 is already around the corner.

Qualification for the tournament in Germany is complete, with just a few spots left to be decided via the play-offs in March.

Euro 2020 was unique in that multiple cities from various countries were used to celebrate the tournament's 60th anniversary, but things will be going back to normal in 2024 with ten German cities playing host.

Here's the lowdown on the ten stadiums that are being used at Euro 2024.

1. Olympiastadion

14 July - Final

Germany's answer to Wembley. The Olympiastadion is the biggest stadium in the country and has played host to every German Cup final since 1985.

The 2006 World Cup final was also played here, as was the 2015 Champions League final. The Euro 2024 final will be the next major event Berlin ticks off its list once the tournament rolls around.

The architecturally unique Allianz Arena is one of the most aesthetically stunning stadiums in Europe and is home to German giants Bayern Munich.

While the arena was built by local rivals Bayern and 1860 München, the former took full ownership of the stadium in April 2006. It has since hosted the 2012 Champions League final and was used four times at Euro 2020.

One of the semi-finals at Euro 2024 will be played at the Allianz Arena, which hosts six games in total.

The notorious Signal Iduna Park is famed for its electric atmosphere and it's no surprise it's been selected to hold the other semi-final at Euro 2024.

The stadium has hosted some major European fixtures over the years, including multiple Champions League semi-finals during Jurgen Klopp's reign as Dortmund boss.

It also held the entertaining 2001 UEFA Cup final between Liverpool and Deportivo Alaves.

It was previously known as the Neckarstadion before 1993 and was used for the 1974 World Cup and 1988 European Championship. It has also hosted two European Cup finals.

The industrial heartland that is Gelsenkirchen will host the fewest number of games at Euro 2024 (four) compared to other cities.

Despite its 21st-century opening, the Arena AufSchalke has already established an impressive pedigree. Jose Mourinho enjoyed his crowning glory as Porto boss in this stadium during the 2004 Champions League final, while England suffered penalty shootout heartbreak at the hands of Portugal in 2006.

6. Deutsche Bank Park

Deutsche Bank Park has been treated to some magical European nights in recent years amid Eintracht Frankfurt's rise and it'll get another chance to host games at a major tournament in 2024.

This arena, built in 1925, is one of the oldest in Germany and has previously hosted games at the 1988 European Championship and the 2006 World Cup.

Volksparkstadion is the biggest stadium in the tourist-friendly Hamburg and will play host to five games at Euro 2024, including a quarter-final tie.

The stadium underwent renovations at the start of the century to ensure it stood up to modern standards following its opening in 1953 and has since hosted the 2010 Europa League final.

It was also used five times at the 2006 World Cup.

8. Merkur Spielarena

A lower key venue for sure, but Fortuna Dusseldorf's home ground still holds over 50,000 and will host two knockout fixtures at this tournament.

The Merkur Spielarena, formerly known as the Rheinstadion, hosted games at the 1988 European Championship, but wasn't used for the 2006 World Cup.

9. RheinEnergieStadion

30 June - Round of 16 (Group B winner vs Third Group A/D/E/F)

Home of FC Köln, the RheinEnergieStadion will host five games at Euro 2024 including a round of 16 clash.

The culturally-rich Cologne also played host to the 2020 Europa League final, with this stadium undergoing renovation to ensure it could stage matches at the 2006 World Cup.

Its capacity is now just shy of 50,000.

10. Red Bull Arena

City: Leipzig
Capacity: 42,959

Games Hosted

18 June - Portugal vs Czech Republic
21 June - Netherlands vs France
24 June - Croatia vs Italy
2 July - Round of 16 (Group D winner vs Group F runner-up)

RB Leipzig's home is the biggest stadium in East Germany and is one of the more modern arenas in the country after opening in 2004 in time for the World Cup.

Like the Arena AufSchalke, the Red Bull Arena will only host four games at Euro 2024.

What stadiums will England play at during Euro 2024?

England's group-stage fixtures see the Three Lions take on Serbia, Denmark and Slovenia at Arena AufSchalke, Deutsche Bank Park and RheinEnergieStadion respectively.

Date / Kick-off Time (GMT)




Sunday 16 June - 20:00

Serbia vs England

Arena AufSchalke


Thursday 20 June - 17:00

Denmark vs England

Deutsche Bank Park


Tuesday 25 June - 20:00

England vs Slovenia



Where Gareth Southgate's side play in the knockout stages depends on whether they win the group or finish runners-up - or, unthinkably, don't qualify at all.

Should they come first in Group C, England would play their last-16 tie against one of Austria, Romania or Turkey at Arena AufSchalke in Gelsenkirchen. A win there would see the Three Lions play their quarter-final at Merkur Spiel-Arena in Dusseldorf, while another victory would result in a semi-final at Dortmund's Westfalenstadion.

BVB's home would be England's first knockout-stage destination if they end the group stage as runners-up. Success there would book a quarter-final clash at MHPArena in Stuttgart before a semi-final at Bayern Munich's Allianz Arena.

The final will be held at the Olympiastadion in Berlin, regardless of England's route and if they reach the showpiece event.
