EURO 2020 hosts: venues and group stages

What is set to make Euro 2020 so special is the fact that for the first time ever the tournament will be held in 11 different venues across 11 different cities in 11 different nations.

The reason being for this move from UEFA to have multiple hosts across Europe was to mark the 60th anniversary of the European Championship.

Each of the 11 different venues will all stage a number of group games and knockout ties, with London’s Wembley Stadium also hosting the semi-finals and final of the tournament.

For a full rundown of which cities, nations and stadiums will be hosting Euro 2020, as well as a breakdown of the fixtures the Euros 2020 locations will be staging, a full table can be found below.

Who are the favourites to win?

As for the Euros football odds for the tournament, there are two joint-favourites as it stands, with both France and England priced at 5/1. France as the reigning world champions, and with the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba, are naturally at the top of the betting, while they are joined by an England side that arguably has an attacking wealth of options at its disposal not seen for quite some time.

Next in line are Belgium at 6/1, the world’s top-ranked team, who have been getting better and better in recent years, but are still without a major trophy in their history. They are followed by a team in Germany, at 15/2, who are no strangers to winning a major tournament but struggled last time out at the 2018 World Cup.

Reigning European champions Portugal and Spain perhaps offer more value at 8/1, while Italy and Netherlands (11/1) are next in line among the usual more-fancied nations. Minnows Hungary and North Macedonia, meanwhile, sit at the other end of the betting at 400/1 and 500/1 respectively.
