Pre-tournament Euro 2024 odds price England and France as the two betting favourites, with the Three Lions looking to go one step further after losing the Euro 2020 final on penalties.

Italy are the defending champions, while hosts Germany are aiming to win the competition for a record fourth time. Die Mannschaft have not won the competition since 1996. 

Stadiums & Host Cities For Euro 2024:

  • Olympiastadion – Berlin
  • Cologne Stadium – Cologne
  • Signal Iduna Park – Dortmund
  • Merkur Spiel-Arena – Düsseldorf 
  • Deutsche Bank Park – Frankfurt
  • Veltins-Arena – Gelsenkirchen 
  • Volksparkstadion – Hamburg
  • Red Bull Arena – Leipzig
  • Allianz Arena – Munich
  • MHPArena – Stuttgart

While none of the venues for Euro 2024 rank among the world’s 10 biggest stadia, there are still some seriously impressive arenas in use this summer. 


Home to the 2006 World Cup final and the 2015 Champions League final, the Olympiastadion in Berlin is one of Europe’s most famous stadiums.

The German Cup final is held at the venue every year, and it will host a quarter-final and the final this summer.

Berlin is a must-visit for any football fan. The city might not have the same footballing heritage as some other German cities, but it is a fascinating, varied place with immense recent history.

A tour of the Olympiastadion is well worth doing if you get the chance. 

Cologne Stadium

Home to FC Köln, Cologne Stadium was reconstructed ahead of the 2006 World Cup. It hosted the 2020 Europa League final.

While the stadium will not be the same without the ferocious home support, it is still an impressive place to watch (and probably play) football.

Perhaps surprisingly, the ground has only been given one knockout match.

Signal Iduna Park

With a round of 16 match and a semi-final allocated, plenty of fans are going to get to enjoy the experience of a matchday at Signal Iduna Park.

While there will be no Yellow Wall, the home of Borussia Dortmund is still an incredible place for fans to visit. 

Dortmund was the home of industry a few decades ago, but the city has evolved into a tech hub.

Their football team has been reborn over the last 15 years, and there are few cities in Europe as passionate about sport. 

Merkur Spiel-Arena

It’s not often a second-tier team gets to host major international matches.

While Düsseldorf finished third in the 2. Bundesliga, their arena is more than worthy of getting a few Euro 2024 fixtures. With a 54,600 capacity, this is the fourth-biggest stadium in use this summer.

It is the only one of the 10 venues which was not used for the 2006 World Cup, though Düsseldorf did host matches for Euro 1988.  

Deutsche Bank Park

Home to five games at Euro 2024, including Denmark vs England and Switzerland vs Germany, this is not the first time Deutsche Bank Park will host major international matches.

Eintracht Frankfurt’s stadium is the only venue in Hesse being used for Euro 2024 fixtures this summer.

They could get a blockbuster round of 16 match with Group F winners (likely Portugal) facing a third-placed team from A, B, or C (possibly Spain, Croatia, or Italy). 


It’s been a bleak couple of years for Schalke. After suffering relegation in 2022-23, they could only muster a 10th-placed finish in 2. Bundesliga in 2023-24.

The Euros at least will provide a brief distraction from the home team’s woes.

This was the location of Portugal’s shootout success over England at the 2006 World Cup. Veltins-Arena also hosted the 2004 Champions League final. 


Having hosted matches at the 1974 Euros and two World Cups, the Volksparkstadion is familiar with the demands of tournament football.

The venue has been through plenty of changes over the years, however. The most notable were made in the late 1990s, including the removal of the athletics track.

It was the adopted home of Shakhtar Donetsk for this season’s Champions League. 

Red Bull Arena

Recently announced as the host of the 2026 Europa Conference League final, the Red Bull Arena might be home to Germany’s most controversial football club, but that hasn’t stopped RB Leipzig from hosting three group matches and a round of 16 clash.

The group fixtures are particularly appealing with Croatia facing Italy, the Netherlands taking on France, and Portugal going up against the Czech Republic.

Formerly known as the Zentralstadion, the Red Bull Arena is referred to as the RB Arena for UEFA matches - and England's base camp for Euro 2024 isn't a million miles away from the iconic venue.

It has been listed as Leipzig Stadium on the official UEFA website, but it is impossible to ignore the stadium’s association with the energy drink company. 

Allianz Arena

Opened in 2005, Bayern Munich’s home stadium hosted the Champions League final in 2012, and will host the finale of Europe’s premier club competition again in 2025. It will host a round of 16 match and the first semi-final of Euro 2024. 

The venue held several matches at Euro 2020. With a capacity of 66,000, it is the second-largest stadium for this summer’s Euros. 

Munich is a fun city to visit with plenty of history and an array of beer halls, which are bound to be packed with fans during the tournament. 


There’s plenty of football history at the MHPArena. Stuttgart have also enjoyed an excellent campaign, which will have contributed to a feel-good campaign around the city. 

The stadium has had plenty of work done over the years, which is hardly surprising seeing as it was initially opened in 1933.

Over £100 million has been spent getting the venue ready for Euro 2024, with the lower level of the main stand completely rebuilt and numerous facilities revamped.
