UEFA EURO 2020: All Information you need to know about the Tournament

The Euro 2020 Opening Ceremony officially took place at Rome’s illustrious Stadio Olimpico on 11 June 2021 after a year delayed by the Covid-19 pandemic. This has been considered the unique Euro’s tournament since its inaugural season in 1960. There are a lot of special things about the biggest European football championship this season that you might not know. Let’s check them out with Betimate in this post!

1. What is Euro 2020?

Euro 2020 is the simple name of the 2020 UEFA European Football Championship, which is also known as the 2020 UEFA European Championship or UEFA Euro 2020. This the 16th edition of the UEFA European Championship, the quadrennial international men's football championship of Europe organized by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA). Portugal are the defending champions. They won the 2016 competition in France.

The final tournament was initially booked from 12 June to 12 July 2020 but postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic in Europe. It was rescheduled for 11 June to 11 July 2021 and retained the name “UEFA Euro 2020”. However, many people called it Euro 2021 because of its playing time. 

 

UEFA Euro 2020UEFA Euro 2020


The Euro 2020 is going to be held in 11 cities in 11 UEFA countries on the occasion of the 60th birthday of the competition. The Video Assistant Referee (
VAR) system is also making its debut this season. The International Broadcast Centre (IBC) which is located at the Expo Haarlemmermeer in Vijfhuizen (the Netherlands) has the right to broadcast all matches of the tournament.

2. Effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on Euro 2020

Postponement of many football games

In early 2020, the outbreak of Coronavirus in Europe as well as all over the world made non-small impacts on players, staff, and spectators of the tournament. Many other domestic and UEFA competitions began taking place behind closed doors and then suspended. On 17th March 2020, after the videoconference with member associations, UEFA announced that Euro 2020 would be postponed to June 2021. Along with that decision, the expanded FIFA Club World Cup which was scheduled to take place in June and July 2021 was put off. 

Venue changes and Spectator plans

To celebrate the 60th “birthday” of the tournament, Euro 2020 was originally planned to be held in 13 venues on 19 September 2014. However, there were a lot of changes in the processes of arranging stadiums and audience plans to both make real sense for football fans and guarantee people’s safety during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

 

Wembley stadium -LondonWembley Stadium -London

 

On 7 December 2017, the UEFA Executive Committee removed Brussels (Belgium) as a host city due to delays with the building of Eurostadium. The four matches initially scheduled to be played in Brussels were reassigned to Wembley Stadium in London. On 23 April 2021, Aviva Stadium in Dublin (Ireland) was removed as a tournament host due to a lack of spectators’ guarantees. Their four matches were reallocated to Krestovsky Stadium in Saint Petersburg (3 group stage matches) and Wembley Stadium in London (a round of 16). Later, four games in La Cartuja stadium in Seville (Spain) would also be played in  San Mamés in Bilbao (Spain) instead. Of the 11 Euro 2020 hosts, seven cities and six countries have never hosted a European Championship finals match before. 

 

This season, each city will host three group stage matches and one match in the round of 16 or quarter-finals, except for Saint Petersburg, which will host six group stage matches, and London, which will host two matches in the round of 16.

  • Group stage, round of 16, semi-finals and final: London (England).
  • Group stage and quarter-finals: Baku (Azerbaijan), Munich (Germany), Rome (Italy), Saint Petersburg (Russia).
  • Group stage and round of 16: Amsterdam (Netherlands), Bucharest (Romania), Budapest (Hungary), Copenhagen (Denmark), Glasgow (Scotland), Seville (Spain).

The spectator’s limits are displayed in the below table:

Rule changes

On 31 March 2021, the UEFA agreed to use a maximum of 5 substitutions in a game (with a sixth one allowed in extra time). However, each team is only given three times to make substitutions with a fourth opportunity allowed in extra time, excluding substitutions made at half-time, before the start of extra time, and at half-time in extra time. This decision will help to reduce burdens on players. 

On 27 April 2021, UEFA announced to expand the number of each team from the usual 23 players to 26 players. However, teams shall only name 23 players max on the match sheet  (11 starting players and 12 substitutes). After each team’s first game, goalkeepers can be replaced. 

Special Rules

Because of Coronavirus effects, special rules were given to guarantee the best status for the final tournament.

  • If a group of players of a team was confirmed positive SARS-CoV-2 tests, the match will go ahead as long as the team had at least 13 available players.
  • If a team can not meet the minimum number on the field, the match will be rescheduled within the next 48 hours of the original date. UEFA may reassign the rescheduled match to another venue. 
  • If the rescheduled match cannot be played, the team will have to take responsibility for the match, be forfeited, and lost 3-0. 
  • If any member of the referee team is positive with Coronavirus, UEFA can exceptionally appoint a match official of the same nationality as one of the teams or not on the FIFA list.

3. Euro 2020 Tournament

Qualifying Tournament

There was not any team automatically qualified. All 55 UEFA national teams, including 12 national teams whose countries were selected as the tournament venues, had to compete in the qualification for the 24 places at the final tournament. 

The qualifying draw was held on 2 December 2018 at the Convention Centre Dublin in Ireland. The main qualifying process began in March 2019 and finished in November 2019. The format remained largely the same. However, only 20 of the 24 spots for the finals tournament were decided from the main qualifying process, and the four remaining spots have not yet been decided.

Following the entrance of the Kovoso team, it was announced that 55 member teams would be drawn into 10 groups ( 5 groups of 5 and 5 groups of 6), with the best two teams in each group qualifying. The other four places were later chosen through playoffs contested among 16 participating teams based on UEFA Nations League group positions and performances. 

Final draw

The draw for the Euro 2020 final tournament was held on 30 November 2019 at Romexpo in Bucharest, Romania. The 24 teams were drawn into 6 groups of four. The identity of the four playoff teams was not known at the time of the draw and was identified as play-off winners from A to D. 

The below table is the final result of the draw after the Euro 2020 playoffs finished. The team in italics words are play-off winners whose identity was not known at the time of the draw.

The ceremony was likened to a party of sounds and lights with professional virtual reality technology.

The criteria of extra time, substitutions, penalty shoot-outs will be the last choices to decide the result of each match. There will be no third-place playoff in this round. The specific match-ups relating to the third-placed teams will depend on which four third-placed teams will qualify for the Round of 16.
