UEFA ‘clusters’ matches for Euro 2024 with opener in Munich and final in Berlin

May 11 – The Euro 2024 championships in Germany will open at the Fussball Arena in Munich, and close with the final at the Olympiastadion in Berlin.

UEFA has agreed the match schedule for Euro 2024 which will be played across ten cities in Germany from 14 June to 14 July 2024.

Mindful of it own commitments to environmental issues, UEFA said: “For the first time, sustainability has been included as a criterion in the tournament regulations and, consequently, three clusters of venues have been established: “North/North-East” (Berlin, Hamburg, Leipzig), “West” (Dortmund, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Gelsenkirchen, Cologne) and “South” (Frankfurt, Munich, Stuttgart).”

To keep travel to a minimum, each group will see matches played only across two clusters.

This “will reduce travel distances for teams and fans between the host cities, and favours team delegations travelling by train or bus from their base camps to the match venues during the group stage,” said UEFA.
