|Fußball-Europameisterschaft 2024 (in German)|
|Dates||June - July|
|Venue(s)||10 (in 10 host cities)|
The 2024 UEFA European Football Championship, commonly referred to as UEFA Euro 2024 or simply Euro 2024, will be the 17th edition of the UEFA European Championship, the quadrennial international men's football championship of Europe organized by UEFA. Germany will host the tournament in June and July 2024.
It will be the third time that Germany hosts the competition, the first being 1988 in West Germany and the second being 2020 hosting four matches in Munich's Allianz Arena. However, it will be the first time the competition is held in the former East Germany.
The UEFA Executive Committee voted for the host in a secret ballot, with only a simple majority required to determine the host. In the event of a tie, the UEFA President would cast the decisive vote. Of the twenty members of the Executive Committee, two were ineligible to vote and one was absent, leaving a total of seventeen voting members.
As hosts, Germany qualified for the tournament automatically. The 23 remaining spots will be determined through qualifying, with the group stage taking place from March to November 2023, and the play-offs linked with the 2022-23 UEFA Nations League in March 2024.
The qualifying draw is expected to take place in December 2022.

Germany had a wide choice of stadia that satisfied UEFA's minimum capacity requirement of 40,000 seats for European Championship matches.
Nine venues used at the 2006 FIFA World Cup were selected: Berlin, Dortmund, Munich, Cologne, Stuttgart, Hamburg, Leipzig, Frankfurt and Gelsenkirchen. Düsseldorf, which was not used in 2006 but had previously been used for the 1974 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 1988, will serve as a 10th venue; conversely, Hanover, Nuremberg and Kaiserslautern, host cities in 2006, will not be used for this championship.
Bremen's Weser-Stadion (37,441), Mönchengladbach's Borussia-Park (46,249), Hanover's Niedersachsenstadion (43,000), Nuremberg's Max-Morlock-Stadion (41,000) and Kaiserslautern's Fritz-Walter-Stadion (46,000) were not selected. The venues covered all the main regions of Germany but the area with the highest number of venues at UEFA Euro 2024 is the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, with 4 of the 10 host cities (Dortmund, Düsseldorf, Gelsenkirchen and Cologne) there.
