Euro 2020 Being Played in 2021
Taking place every four years since 1960, the Euro's is a football tournament which takes place in a different country each time round which sees European national sides compete against one another for the Champions status. Originally this competition was known as the UEFA European Nations’ Cup but was changed to the UEFA European Championship in 1968. The format of this soccer tournament started with the qualifying process which determined which national teams were to compete in the games with the only exemption to these qualifying games being the host nation. At the end of the fixtures the Championship winners – up until 2016, received the chance to compete in the FIFA Confederations Cup.
Due to the worldwide Coronavirus pandemic Euro 2020 will be postponed until the summer of 2021, this is to ensure the safety of footballers and fans. This is the first time there has been a five year gap between each tournament, and may cause the shake up of other events in the football calendar. Take a look at our blog for all the latest updates, and get ready for Euro 2020 kickoff in June 2021 by shopping for your teams national kit.
In the beginning the number of national teams within the Euros tournament were only four but this was expanded to 8 in the 1980s, 16 in 1996 and then 24 in 2007. This rapid growth of the tournament participation meant that this was soon becoming the most popular soccer tournament to be watched across Europe.
Euro 2020 to be Held Across European Cities
Traditionally there is only one host country for the European Championships which is determined after a voting and bidding process between several countries. However, for Euro 2020 they have decided to host the UEFA European Championship across 12 cities instead. The twelve cities chosen for hosting the 2021 games are:
- Amsterdam, The Netherlands
- Baku, Azerbaijan
- Bilbao, Spain
- Bucharest, Romania
- Munich, Germany
- Saint Petersburg, Russia
- Budapest, Hungary
- London, England
- Copenhagen, Denmark
- Rome, Italy
- Dublin, Ireland
- Glasgow, Scotland
When it comes to planning the scheduling of Euro 2020 across these 12 cities it has been worked out that each country will host a variety of group stages, round of 16 and the finals each. See the breakdown here:

Previous Euros Winners
As the tournament has been taking place every four years since 1960, there have been many winners across each championship. Below is a breakdown of which national team has lifted the UEFA European Championship trophy over the years:
- Germany – 1972, 1980, 1996
- Spain – 1964, 2008, 2012
- France – 1984, 2000
- Soviet Union – 1960

- Portugal – 2016
As we can see from the list above, Germany and Spain both have three European Championship Winners titles. However, the most significant is Spain who has been awarded first place in two consecutive tournaments. As a result of this, we expect the signature red Spanish home shirts and the white Germany home jerseys to be a popular choice this tournament.
Along with these two impressive national sides, there is also one more which has surprised supporters with their impressive showcase in the 2018 World Cup. Due to their success at winning the World Cup trophy, we could also expect the spirits to be high for the supporters of the France national team kits, thus increasing the popularity of their famous navy French home shirts during the UEFA European Championship for 2021.
When looking at the top 10 Nations League Qualifiers rankings we can see that there are several teams in there who have yet to win a Euros title. These countries are Belgium, Ukraine, England, Turkey, Ireland, Croatia and Poland. As these teams are running high in the rankings, the demand for their jerseys will be high. The Belgian national team is currently ranking first, meaning that the Belgium kit is sure to be popular this coming tournament.
