A total of five games will be played in Frankfurt at the 2024 European Football Championship. This was announced by the European association UEFA on Tuesday in Vienna. In any case, there is also a game of the DFB-Elf.
At the 2006 World Cup, Ronaldinho and Zinedine Zidane played in a breathtaking quarterfinals in Frankfurt, this time there is a visit from the German national soccer team: A total of five games will be played in Frankfurt at the 2024 European Soccer Championship. This was announced by the European association UEFA on Tuesday in Vienna. Accordingly, four group games – including a game by hosts Germany – and a round of 16 will take place in the Frankfurt stadium.
Frankfurt will receive two Group E games (June 17 and 26, 2024) as well as one game each in Group C (June 20) and Group A (June 23, with Germany) plus an additional round of 16 on July 1. The EM will take place from June 14 to July 14, 2024 in ten German cities. There was no quarter-final for Frankfurt this time like at the 2006 World Cup. At that time, the quarter-finals between Brazil and France took place in Hesse.
Schedule as a sign
The final round will be drawn in December 2023 in Hamburg. Then it will be clear which teams will be guests in Frankfurt and will play their games. The final of the EM 2024 will take place in the Berlin Olympic Stadium, the opening game in Munich. The two semi-finals will be held in Munich (July 9th) and Dortmund (July 10th). Hamburg and Stuttgart (both July 5) as well as Berlin and Düsseldorf (July 6) were chosen to host the quarter-finals.
In addition to Frankfurt, hosts are also Gelsenkirchen, Cologne and Leipzig. “Overall, we have outstanding football arenas in Germany that are already ready for the 2024 European Championship,” said DFB President Bernd Neuendorf. “The preparations in the host cities and also in our national associations are underway. The tournament is now given a face with the game plan. This increases the anticipation again. It is an important sign that the game plan is also decisively shaped by the idea of sustainability for the first time. “
Draw in Frankfurt
The qualification will be drawn next October in Frankfurt. “With the release of the fixture list, the tournament becomes more tangible. Together with the regulations approved by the UEFA Executive Committee, there are two pillars of the tournament organisation,” said UEFA Director Martin Kallen. “We have created a good basis together and can look forward to October 9th with great anticipation, when the qualifying draw will take place in the Festhalle in Frankfurt am Main and the teams will find out who they will be measuring against on the way to Germany.”
The DFB was awarded the tournament in September 2018, the opponent in the decision in Nyon was Turkey. At the last pan-European finals in summer 2021, Munich hosted three preliminary round games and one quarter-final. The Bavarian state capital is also hosting the 2025 Champions League final.
