The European Football Championship 2024 will be held in Germany for the first time since 1988. It will actually be the first European Football Championship in Germany since reunification! The tournament kicks off in Munich on 14 June and the final will be played in Berlin's Olympic Stadium on 14 July 2024.

We remember: Italy were the European champions at UEFA EURO 2020, which was not held until 2021 due to Covid but kept its name. So next year, the question will be which European team has the power to replace the reigning European champions.

Tickets for the European Football Championship 2024

In addition to the opening match with the German national team, three further preliminary round matches, a round of 16 match and a semi-final will take place in Munich at FC Bayern's home stadium. Detailed information on ticket sales can be found on the UEFA website.

The winners of the round of 16 will be determined between 29 June and 2 July. Only four teams will remain after the quarter-finals from 5 to 6 July. And finally, the semi-finals on 9 and 10 July will decide who goes through to the final on 14 July in Berlin's Olympic Stadium.

Stadion der Träume (Stadium of dreams)

Around a month before the UEFA Euro 2024 kicks off, an extensive programme of theatre, readings, concerts, poetry slams and talks - all inspired by the theme of football - will start at the Fat Cat, the interim cultural use of the Gasteig. Around 70 events will take place from 10 May to 13 July in the “Stadium of Dreams“, which will be set up in the outdoor area of the Fat Cat especially for the festival and is itself a work of art: British artist and designer Morag Myerscough wants to use the colourful structure to set an example of “cheerfulness and optimism“.

Visitors can look forward to contributions from major cultural institutions such as the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra and the Residenztheater as well as the opening party with DJ Hell or a poetry slam with contributions from workshops with pupils at the European Championship venues. Numerous plays have also been written especially for their performance in the “Stadium of Dreams“. On one of the evenings Munich light artist Michael Gene Aichner will commemorate the bombed-out theatre in Mariupol with a projection, while a concert from Ukraine will be broadcast live in the stadium.

People with a passion for football and culture should come together across all borders. Musicians, actors, politicians, footballers and sports experts all contribute to the programme in their own way. The programme includes, to name just a few names known beyond Munich, Sportfreunde Stiller and Herbert Grönemeyer, actors Veronika Ferres, Lars Eidinger and Nina Kunzendorf, Green Party politician Claudia Roth, Munich's mayor Dieter Reiter and football experts and former professional players Philip Lahm and Uli Hoeneß.

Most events are free of charge, tickets for special events such as concerts can now be purchased from München Ticket.

You can find the full programme of the Stadium of Dreams here.

Munich is football and football is Munich

With its infrastructure and hospitality, Munich is ideally placed to welcome football fans from all over the world and give them a wonderful time in Munich. This was demonstrated during the “Sommermärchen“ (summer fairytale) of the 2006 World Cup, when a marvellous international festival was celebrated here for almost four weeks in the best weather and the best atmosphere. The Fußball Arena München (Munich Football Arena) with its magnificent air-cushion architecture by Herzog and de Meuron was completed just in time for the 2006 World Cup. Its outer skin, usually illuminated in the red of FC Bayern, marks the entrance to the football city of Munich from the north.

Munich's teams: FC Bayern and “die Löwen“ (Lions)

Munich is home to football, one of the best teams in the world, FC Bayern regularly celebrates its successes here in the heart of the city on Marienplatz and receives ovations from its many fans on the balcony of Munich's Neues Rathaus (City Hall). There is a high probability that FC Bayern players will be nominated for the German 2024 European Championship squad.

Munich also has another traditional team, the TSV 1860 (the “Lions“). They are based in Munich's Giesing district and still have their own cult stadium, the Grünwalder Stadion. For years, both teams played in Munich's legendary Olympiastadion.

Enjoy Munich before and after the game

During the football-free period, you can really enjoy yourself in Munich. Whether it's typical Bavarian food, sightseeing or even a trip to the wonderful Alpine foothills, fans have countless options for things to do in and around Munich during the football-free period. It's best to plan a few more days!
