Where is Euro 2024 being played At?

The 17th edition of the European Championships will be hosted by three-time winners Germany. Played across ten cities, holders Italy will look to defend their crown. Here we take a look at which stadiums will host the fixtures:

Euro 2024

Olympiastadion | Location: Berlin | Capacity: 74,475

The biggest host stadium at Euro 2024 is the Olympiastadion Berlin, located in the nation’s capital city. The venue has an official capacity of 74,475 and is the home of Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin.

Every German Cup final since 1985 has been staged here, and is the home to the majority of German national team fixtures. It has been a stadium which has hosted some of the biggest club games, including the 2015 Champions League final when Barcelona beat Juventus 3-1. Perhaps even bigger, the Olympiastadion also staged the 2006 World Cup final, as Italy defeated France on penalties. This was the game in which Zinedine Zidane famously got sent off for head-butting Marco Materazzi.

In Euro 2024, six games will be played here, including round of 16 and quarter-final matches, as well as the final on July 14th.

RheinEnergieSTADION | Location: Cologne | Capacity: 45,965

Cologne Stadium, better known as RheinEnergieStadion, will host four group stage games and one round of 16 game. The venue has a capacity of 45,965 for international matches and is home to Bundesliga side FC Köln. Due to sponsorship agreements, the stadium will be referred to as ‘Cologne Stadium’ throughout the tournament.

It has hosted important matches in recent years, most notably the Europa League final in 2020 between Sevilla and Inter Milan. Originally due to be played in Gdansk, Poland, the tie was moved to Cologne due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and was played behind closed doors as Sevilla won 3-2. In addition, the RheinEnergieStadion regularly stages the German Women’s cup final. The 2006 World Cup also saw five games played there.

Signal Iduna Park | Location: Dortmund | Capacity: 81,365

BVB Stadium Dortmund, more famously recognised as Signal Igunda Park, is one of the largest host stadiums for Euro 2024. Having to revert to this name for UEFA competitions, BVB Stadium Dortmund is well known across the footballing world for its iconic ‘Yellow Wall’ stand, home to Borussia Dortmund supporters.

With a league capacity of 81,365 (seated and standing), it is the largest stadium in Germany. However, with an international capacity of 65,829 (seated), it is the third largest in this tournament.

The arena has staged multiple international friendlies and qualifiers for both the World Cup and European Championships. It has also played host to games in two World Cup tournaments, in 1974 and 2006.

Most notably it hosted the UEFA Cup Final in 2001 between Liverpool and Deportivo Alavés. In front of 48,050 fans, Liverpool came out on top with a 5-4 victory with their winner coming in extra-time as a result of the golden goal rule.

Six games will be played here in Euro 2024, including a semi-final fixture.

MERKUR SPIEL-Arena | Location: Dusseldorf | Capacity: 54,000

Düsseldorf Arena is home to Fortuna Düsseldorf, who currently play in the German second division after being relegated in 2020. It is one of the smaller venues in the competition, but still holds around 54,000 people. As is a common theme for many of these host stadiums, the ground had to be renamed for the tournament due to sponsorship reasons. It is more regularly known as Merkur Spiel-Arena.

It is a multi-functional stadium, able to stage music events as well as other sports such as American Football and boxing. Despite not being used for the 2006 World Cup, Düsseldorf Arena has hosted various international matches since. The German national team has played there three times, the first being in 2005, a 2-2 draw with Argentina. Other national teams including Portugal and USA have also seen some games hosted here.

The upcoming Euros will have five games, with three group stage fixtures and two knockout games.

Deutsche Bank Park | Location: Frankfurt | Capacity: 48,500

The Waldstadion, referred to as Frankfurt Arena for the upcoming tournament, holds 48,500 spectators for international matches. Home to Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt, the stadium will stage five games at Euro 2024. These will be four group stage fixtures and one knockout game.

Historically, the venue has regularly been used for big matches. In addition to hosting five games at the 1974 World Cup, five games were also played there during the 2006 World Cup, including a quarter-final.

Not only does it host football, but it will welcome NFL games for the first time in November as part of the International series. First, it will be the Kansas City Chiefs vs Miami Dolphins, before the Indianapolis Colts and the New England Patriots visit the city a week later.

Games at the 2011 Women’s World Cup, including a semi-final and the final, were also played here.

VELTINS-Arena | Location: Gelsenkirchen | Capacity: 62,271

Seven-time German champions Schalke play their games at Arena AufSchalke in Gelsenkirchen, another host venue of Euro 2024. The famous stadium first opened in 2001 and is now home to Bundesliga 2 fixtures, following the club’s relegation from the top tier of German football last season.

With a capacity of 62,271, it has staged multiple high-profile international and club fixtures this century. In 2004, Monaco and Porto met in the Champions League final, with the Portuguese side winning 3-0. Jose Mourinho was the winning manager. The 2006 World Cup quarter-final was also played here, in what is a painful memory for England fans. The Three Lions suffered penalty heartbreak as they lost 3-1 in the shootout to Portugal following a 0-0 draw. Wayne Rooney was sent off in the second half.

Four Euro 2024 matches will be staged at Arena AufSchalke, including a quarter-final.

Volkspartstadion | Location: Hamburg | Capacity: 51,500

Another Bundesliga 2 stadium will play host to five Euro 2024 games as the Volkspartstadion Hamburg was selected. Despite no longer being used for top-flight football, the home of Hamburger SV has a capacity of 51,500 for international matches.

As well as staging four group stage games at the upcoming tournament, it will also host a quarter-final fixture.

It will be familiar for British football fans as it was the venue of Fulham’s 2-1 defeat to Atletico Madrid in the 2010 Europa League final. Before this, it hosted five games at the 2006 World Cup, most notably the quarter-final between Italy and Ukraine. Fixtures in the 1974 World Cup and 1988 European Championships were also played here.

Red Bull Arena | Location: Leipzig | Capacity: 42,600

Most will know it as the Red Bull Arena, but for the Euros it will be called Leipzig Stadium. Home to RB Leipzig, the stadium was opened in 2004, and has an international capacity of 42,600. This makes it the smallest of the all the host venues.

This will be the second major tournament to have games held here, as it staged four group stage matches and a round of 16 game at the 2006 World Cup just two years after the arena was first used. In doing so, it was the only stadium in Eastern Germany to host a game in that tournament.

Fans will have multiple opportunities to watch a game at Leipzig Stadium, as four games will be played, including three group stage fixtures and a knockout tie.

Allianz Arena | Location: Munich | Capacity: 75,024

Perhaps the most famous stadium to host a game in Euro 2024, the Allianz Arena will be the second largest venue in the competition. Home to the most successful German side of all time and current champions Bayern Munich, the 70,000 seater stadium will stage five games, three group games and a round of 16 tie, before one of the semi-finals. It was also be the setting of Germany’s game of the tournament.

Apart from hosting all of Bayern’s home fixtures, the Allianz has seen many huge fixtures. In 2012, the Champions League final between Bayern and Chelsea saw the Londoners win their first European title. They famously beat the Germans in their own home on penalties. It will also host the 2025 Champions League final.

This will be the second European Championships in a row that Munich will host, as it was one of the 11 cities selected to stage games in Euro 2020. It also hosted five matches at the 2006 World Cup.

MHPArena | Location: Stuttgart | Capacity: 54,906

The final host venue of Euro 2024 is Stuttgart Arena, home of Bundesliga side Stuttgart. The 54,906 seater stadium will stage five games in the competition, with one being a quarter-final.

It has hosted plenty of high profile matches in the past, including two World Cups and a European Championship. In 1974, they were given four World Cup games, all in the group stages, whilst in 2006 they were handed six. England played their round of 16 victory over Ecuador here. This will be the second Euros tournament the city will enjoy, as it was the setting for two games in 1988, one of which being a semi-final tie between Soviet Union and Italy.
