The 2020-21 football season is over and there is still time for the new season to begin. However, this summer will not be boring for football fans, as the biggest football festival in Europe is here. The Euro 2021 or Euro 2020, you can call it either, is going to start on June 12th, 2021 with the face-off between Turkey and Italy.
The UEFA European Football Championship is a 63-year-old, where the top European countries play their best game against each other to prove who is the King of European football.
This prestigious tournament takes place every four years. The last one took place in 2016, which was won by Portugal. The next tournament was supposed to be held in 2020. However, the coronavirus pandemic forced the UEFA authorities to postpone the tournament in summer 2021. Thus, confusing many fans about whether to call it Euro 2020 or 2021, but to be honest it doesn’t matter, and just get your bucket full of popcorn to enjoy the live streaming of this grand football tournament.
Where will Euro 2021 take place?
If we look at the tournament’s history, each time a European country hosts the entire tournament. However, the COVID-19 situation changed a lot of things. As this year, 11 countries will host the Euros instead of the normal one country only.
Most countries will allow fans to attend the matches in the stadium. However, the full capacity of the stadium won’t be allowed, like Saint Petersburg and Baku confirmed 50 percent of capacity, while London will allow 25 percent in the first three group stage matches and then 50 percent for later matches. Meanwhile, Budapest is aiming for a 100 percent capacity of fans to attend the Euro 2021.
What is the format of the tournament?
Euro began with only eight countries competing to expanding to 16 countries and finally the expansion to the present system of 24 national teams. The 24 teams are divided into six groups of four teams each.

Two top teams from every six groups qualify for the next stage, the Round of 16. However, this is only 12 teams where are four more teams, so four 3rd runner-ups qualify to fill the vacant seats. After the R16, the winning teams move to the quarterfinals and then the semifinals. Finally, the remaining two national teams face each other in the grand finale of Euro 2021.
