2021 European stadiums, calendar and cities: this is where we play

The continental tournament is itinerant for the first time: let’s see everything there is to know about the facilities that will host the meetings from 11 June

Everything is ready for the European Championship which, one year late for Covid, will start on 11 June from the Olympic stadium in Rome, when the match between Italy and Turkey will be staged. This will be a special tournament, not only because it has become an effective symbol of the restart, but also because it will be itinerant and will involve eleven European cities. And then eleven stages.

There are great absentees, such as the Olympiastadion in Berlin (in Germany they will be played in Munich) and little-known facilities ready to be discovered, such as the stadium de la Cartuja in Seville (which took the place of the one in Bilbao), nice and modern but repudiated by Betis and Seville. Let’s see them all.

Capacity: 16 thousand spectators will be admitted (which will occupy 25% of the seats)

Hosted matches: Turkey-Italy (11 June at 9 pm), Italy-Switzerland (16 June at 9 pm), Italy-Wales (20 June at 6 pm), plus a quarter-final (3 July)
