Everything you need to know about this summer’s major football tournament

Taking place a year later than scheduled, Euro 2020 will see 24 nations battle it out for the Henri Delaunay trophy, including England, Scotland and Wales. 

This summer’s tournament has a different look to previous editions. Instead of one country hosting all matches, the fixtures will be played across the continent. From Friday 11 June to Sunday 11 July there will be 51 matches played in 11 host cities. There are six groups (A to F) and the top two teams will qualify for the round of 16, plus the four best third-placed teams. 

Hampden Park in Glasgow will host four matches - three in group D and a round of 16 game. Wembley Stadium in London will have eight matches - three in group D, two last-16 games, both semi-finals and the final.

Here’s everything you need to know about Euro 2020. All times listed below are BST.
