Everything You Need to Know on the 11 Euro 2020 Stadiums

Stadio Olimpico – Rome, Italy

Italy will take on Turkey in the opening match of Euro 2020 at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. One of four matches to be played in the Italian capital, all three of Italy’s group games will take place at the Olimpico, as will one quarter-final fixture.

The shared home of Serie A giants Lazio and Roma, England could play their only match away from home at the 70,634 seater stadium, should the Three Lions win Group D and eventually meet with Italy.

It will be the first time since the 1990 World Cup final that major tournament matches will be played at the Olimpico and it is certainly one of the most notable and favourite Euro 2020 stadiums

Krestovsky Stadium – Saint Petersburg, Russia

Having hosted seven matches during the 2018 World Cup, the Krestovsky Stadium will once again stage the same number of fixtures at this year’s European Championships.

Originally only meant to have had three Group B matches, the 67,800 seater stadium was awarded a further trio of Group E games after Dublin’s Aviva Stadium was unable to confirm fans would be allowed to attend.

The Krestovsky will also host one quarter-final fixture, making it the joint-most used stadium at the tournament and the most used European stadium at major tournaments in the 21st century.

Fußball Arena München – Munich, Germany

Renamed from the Allianz Arena from the Fußball Arena München for sponsorship reasons ahead of Euro 2020, the home of Bayern Munich will stage three Group F matches and one quarter-final fixture.

Germany will take on Hungary, France and Portugal at the 70,000 seater stadium, with Die Mannschaft looking to make it a record four European Championship victories this summer.

Current Champions League holders, Chelsea, will have fond memories of the Allianz, as it was the site of their first Champions League triumph in 2012 and it remains one of the most well-known Euro 2020 stadiums.

Olympic Stadium – Baku, Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan has never hosted a major tournament football match, but will stage three games at Euro 2020. The second host nation that failed to qualify for the finals, Baku’s 70,000-seater Olympic Stadium will host three Group A matches and one quarter-final fixture.

Wales will start their European Championships campaign in the country's capital when they meet Switzerland on July 12. The likes of Eden Hazard and Oliver Giroud scored against Arsenal in the Europa League final for Chelsea that day, and with France avoiding this stadium due to the structure of the competition, it will be a new stadium for almost everyone who attends it in this Euro 2020 stadium.

Hampden Park – Glasgow, Scotland

First built over 100 years ago, Hampden Park is the oldest stadium to be used at Euro 2020 and will stage three Group D fixtures along with one round of 16 tie.

Home of the Scottish national team since 1903, the 51,866 capacity stadium has never hosted a major tournament match, yet it did stage the 2002 Champions League final between Real Madrid and Bayer Leverkusen.

In their first European Championships appearance since 1996, Scotland will face the Czech Republic and Croatia at Hampden, as they travel to Wembley for the England clash instead meaning Scotland move around the Euro 2020 stadiums quite a bit.

Estadio La Cartuja – Seville, Spain

Originally built for the World Athletics Championships in 1999, the Estadio La Cartuja in Seville will host the Euro 2020 matches scheduled for the San Mamés stadium in Bilbao.

Moved due to concerns over whether supporters would be able to attend or not, all three of Spain’s group stage fixtures against Sweden, Poland and Slovakia will take place at the Cartuja. Celtic supporters will have unhappy memories of the Cartuja, as it was where the Bhoys lost the UEFA Cup final against Porto in 2003.

Puskas Arena – Budapest, Hungary

The only purpose-built stadium for the tournament, the Puskas Arena was completed in 2019 and will host a trio of Group F matches and a singular round of 16 tie at Euro 2020.

Home advantage will be crucial for Hungary, who have been drawn in the ‘group of death’ against Germany, France and reigning champions, Portugal.

Players of Manchester City and Liverpool will be familiar with the Puskas Arena, as the 67,215 capacity stadium was used for their rearranged Champions League round of 16 ties this season and it is one of the most modern Euro 2020 stadiums available.

Wembley Stadium – London, England

All 24 sides competing in Euro 2020 will be dreaming of lifting the European Championship trophy at Wembley Stadium on July 11.

Staging all three of England’s Group D fixtures, one round-of-16 tie, both semi-finals and eventually the final, Wembley is the largest stadium being used at the tournament. Hosting tournament football for the first time since 1996, a repeat of England vs Scotland from Euro 96 will be one of the standout matches played at the 90,000 seater stadium.

Should Gareth Southgate’s men go all the way and win the tournament, England will become the first side since France in 1984 to win the European Championships on home soil.

Parken Stadium - Copenhagen, Denmark

Out of all the Euro 2020 stadiums, the Parken Stadium is both the least well-known to the public and it also hosts the smallest capacity, as only 38,065, which is almost half of other venues like Wembley and the Stadio Olimpico.

The stadium is the Denmark national team's stadium and also the venue of Denmark's most famous club, FC Copenhagen and whilst all but unknown to anyone outside of Denmark, it does boast a Michelin star restaurant.

Arena Nationala - Bucharest, Romania

After being built in 2011, the Arena Nationala in Bucharest, Romania is perhaps the least well-known stadium out of all the Euro 2020 stadiums, although it did play hosts to the 2012 Europa League final between two Spanish sides, Atletico Madrid and Athletic Club.

The Arena Nationala will share hosting duties in Group C alongside the John Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam, and also host one last 16 tie, whilst 55,600 can get into the ground.

Johan Cruyff Arena - Amsterdam, Netherlands

The Johan Cruyff Arena is one of Europe's most famous due to it's association with one of football's most legendary figures and the Dutch champions, Ajax. The stadium is quite handy for all competitors at Euro 2020, with most nations able to get to the Netherlands quite easy, and it not being a tiresome journey to Romania or Azerbaijan.

The stadium will host four games, including all of the Netherlands' group stage matches, plus a last 16 clash as well and is equipped with a retractable roof. The Johan Cruyff Arena also hosted the 1998 Champions League final and five Euro 2000 games.
