The 2020 European Cup is here-2021. Thank you, COVID-19. You may think they will change it to “European Cup 2021”, but no, UEFA-the European football organization that organizes it-insist on using the Euro 2020 brand. As the pandemic has been postponed for a whole year, the 2020 European Cup will now run from Friday, June 11 to Sunday, July 11. This is a one-month football festival. But the 2020 European Cup is very different from the previous ones for more than one reason. There is no single or joint host country here. On the contrary, the 2020 European Cup will be held in 11 cities in 11 countries. In addition, the 2020 European Cup is held after a fierce club football season-thanks again to COVID-19-which makes fatigue the key word to enter the game. The 2020 European Cup champion may not necessarily be the best team, but the last team.
Euro 2020 schedule
The 16th European Championship is divided into two main parts: the group stage determined by the points, each team plays three matches, and then the four-round knockout stage, which ends with the 2020 European Cup final.
The 2020 European Cup group stage will start on Friday, June 11, and will end on Wednesday, June 23. During this period, 24 teams will play 36 games.
This will lead us to the first knockout stage, the European Cup 2020 Round of 16, from Sunday, June 27 to Tuesday, June 29. The winner will participate in the quarter-finals of the European Cup 2020 on Friday, July 2 and Saturday, July 3. We will hold the 2020 European Cup semi-finals on Tuesday, July 6 and Wednesday, July 7.
The 2020 European Cup final is scheduled to be held at Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday, July 11.
