The 2020 UEFA European Championship finally is here.
Delayed a year by the coronavirus pandemic, the ambitious continent-wide tournament will take place in 11 cities separated by four time zones. While the tournament had been held in multiple countries previously (2012 in Poland and Ukraine, 2008 in Austria and Switzerland and 2000 in Belgium and the Netherlands), this is a one-off, 11-country event before it’s hosted solely by Germany in 2024.
The tournament will take place from June 11 until the final on July 11. Both the semifinals and final will be held at Wembley Stadium in London.
