UEFA announced on 24 May 2018 the original tournament schedule, including the starting times for opening and quarter-finals. The dates, kick-off times, times, results and reports are taken from the full Euro 2020 schedule.

Euro 2020 began on 11 June with match events in 11 major cities across Europe and is now in full swing, with some of Europe’s biggest heavyweights involved in the fight for continental glory. Twenty-four teams played 51 games in twelve cities in the tournament last Friday. The tournament ended at Wembley Stadium with the final on Sunday, July 11.

If the last 18 months have taught us anything, it is that the pitch is as important to the fans as the fabric of the game. It is great that the Government has agreed to let 60,000 fans into Wembley for the final three games of the tournament.

Further details, including ticket sales for the matches, will be communicated to UEFA in due course. It is expected that ticket holders in the UK who lost their tickets to the semi-finals and finals will have to vote again and will be at the front of the queue for every game. This is the third phase of the Government’s World Leading Event Research Programme (ERP), which has seen the largest crowd ever seen at a sporting event in the UK for more than 15 months.

With all due respect to Ukraine, Denmark is a different beast and promises to be a tough test of England’s credentials as a potential champion. The Scandinavians have done well to overcome adversity but they will want to go one step further than they did against the Czech Republic. These semi-finals not only promise a fantastic choice between one of the two finalists, they also have what it takes to be a classic tournament with great entertainment.
