Now it’s official!
The final of the EM 2024 will take place on 14 July at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin. This was decided by the UEFA Executive Committee in Vienna on Tuesday!
The opening match of the European Championship, which will take place in ten German cities, will be played in Munich one month earlier (14 June).
Most of the matches (six each) are played in Berlin, Dortmund and Munich, five matches are hosted by Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Cologne and Stuttgart. There will be four matches each in Gelsenkirchen and Leipzig.
For sustainability reasons, the locations have also been divided into three groups. The north / northeast area includes Berlin, Hamburg and Leipzig. The west of Dortmund, Düsseldorf, Gelsenkirchen and the south of Cologne as well as Frankfurt, Munich and Stuttgart. In each EM group there are only games in two zones to reduce travel distances.
As host, the DFB squad has already qualified for the finals, with the draw in Frankfurt next October.
The final draw will therefore take place in December 2023 at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg.
The DFB won the tournament in September 2018. At the 2006 World Cup in Germany, the Munich Arena, newly built at the time, was awarded the contract for the start and the final was also held at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin .
