The Euro 2020 groups are complete, as are the host nations and the locations of the tournament.

The European Championships will begin on Friday in Rome, with Turkey and Italy kicking off the month-long competition.

Wales, England, and Scotland are in Group A and Group D, respectively, with the intriguing match between ‘The Auld Enemy’ taking place at Wembley Stadium on Friday, June 18.

The Pan-European tournament will be held in 11 different cities around Europe to commemorate the competition’s 61st anniversary.

Azerbaijan, Denmark, England, Germany, Holland, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Russia, Scotland, and Spain will all host games in Group A-I on July 11, as 24 different nations compete for the title of Euro 2020 champion.

Both the Spanish city of Bilbao, Belgium, and the Republic of Ireland were slated to host matches, however both countries had to withdraw due to building concerns in Brussels and COVID-19 laws in Ireland, meaning the Arriva Stadium would not host any Euro 2020 events.

The stadiums are as follows:

Amsterdam’s Johan Cruyff Arena

Baku’s Olympic Stadium

Bucharest’s National Arena

Budapest’s Puskás Arena

Copenhagen’s Parken Stadium

Glasgow’s Hampden Park

London’s Wembley Stadium

Munich’s Allianz Arena

Rome’s Olimpico Stadium

Seville’s Estadio de La Cartuja

Krestovsky Stadium, St. Petersburg

All three of England’ group stage games will be played at Wembley, they will look to get revenge over Croatia who eliminated England in the 2018 World Cup, whilst two of Scotland’s will be at Hampden Park.

Two of Wales’ three group stage fixtures will be played in Baku, the setting for the 2019 Europa League final between Arsenal and Chelsea.

Amsterdam, Bucharest, Budapest, Copenhagen, Glasgow and Seville will each host a last 16 fixture with London’s Wembley Stadium, the setting for two of the last 16 matches.

The last eight will have their games played in Baku, Munich, Rome and St Petersburg. If England were to top their group and progress into the quarter-finals they would play the winner of Group E or the best third-placed team from Groups A, B, C or D at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
