Euro 2020 might be taking place a year behind schedule, but the excitement for the summer tournament is as great as ever.
The European Championships were postponed before last summer due to the coronavirus pandemic, which saw many countries across the continent strict free movement to contain the spread.
With the easing of lockdown restrictions in the UK and elsewhere, UEFA have timetabled the tournament to take place once the 2020/21 domestic campaign draws to a close – with the likes of England, Wales and Scotland looking to secure their first major trophy in this competition.
Over the past 12 months, football has been forced to play behind closed doors and Europe’s governing body will be hoping they have the go-ahead to open the turnstiles once more for fans.
Information regarding the tournament will be updated regularly as it becomes available in what looks to be one of the most eagerly awaited Euros of modern times.
Here is everything that you need to know ahead of Euro 2020:
