Euro 2024 guide: Draw, groups, fixtures, stadiums, tv schedule, squads and who will win

Let Planet Sport walk you through the 2024 European Championships with our detailed guide, including the groups, fixtures, knockout format and squad announcements.

The curtain has dropped on the domestic season, so it’s time for Euro 2024! Here, Planet Sport breaks down everything you need to know about Germany 2024.

Join us as we walk you through the groups, fixtures, stadiums, squad announcements and more for the European Championships.


Euro 2024 groups

The draw for Euro 2024 took place on December 2, 2023, in Hamburg, Germany. Teams were allocated to a group before being assigned a starting position.

Group A: Germany, Scotland, Hungary, Switzerland

Group B: Spain, Croatia, Italy, Albania

Group C: Slovenia, Denmark, Serbia, England

Group D: Poland, Netherlands, Austria, France

Group E: Belgium, Slovakia, Romania, Ukraine

Group F: Turkey, Georgia, Portugal, Czechia

The host nation usually benefits from a favourable draw which should be the case for Germany, although Scotland, Switzerland and Hungary have admirable qualities.

England are to be the main beneficiary of the draw as they’ve avoided some tricky pot two opponents.

France will be expected to navigate safe passage to the tournament's knockout phase, yet the Netherlands could push for the top spot.

If the group stages were to align with the bookmaker's expectations, then Germany vs Denmark, Spain vs Scotland and Belgium vs Croatia would be the pick of the Round of 16.

There are plenty of profitable angles to be found if you're looking to back a Euro 2024 group winners acca, as highlighted by Planet Sport's Thomas Ridley in his breakdown.

Those ties could pave the way for some blockbusters, such as Germany vs Spain, England vs Italy and Croatia vs France.

While tournament favourites England can’t meet the host nation until the final, they’ll likely have to see off France to get there.

As is tradition, host nation Germany will kick off Euro 2024 when they host Scotland at the Allianz Arena.

Heavy hitters Spain and Italy feature in the third and fourth matches of the tournament respectively, but we’ll have to wait until days three and four to see England and France.

Venues for Euro 2024

Allianz Arena

Germany has selected 10 host cities for Euro 2024, including the capital Berlin, which boasts the impressive Olympiastadion (74,475) and hosted the 2006 World Cup final.

The Bavarian City of Munich will also host numerous matches, including the opener, in the iconic Allianz Arena (75,024).

However, even those impressive stadiums can’t match the capacity of Borussia Dortmund’s Signal Iduna Park, which can house a whopping 81,365 spectators at full capacity.

Cologne, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Gelsenkirchen, Hamburg, Leipzig and Stuttgart will also host at least four matches during the tournament.

Dortmund and Munich have the honour of hosting the semi-finals, with the final set to place on July 14 in Berlin.


Euro 2024 squads


Each country has confirmed a preliminary squad for the friendlies taking place the week before Euro 2024, with a deadline of midnight on June 7th to name their final squad.

Nations met in Dusseldorf recently to discuss the possibility of a 26-man squad, as used at the World Cup in Qatar and agreed upon the inflated figure.

Some countries have expressed their concern about the deadline, with the likes of England finishing their final warm-up match just two hours before the deadline.

UEFA rules mean squads must be submitted seven days before the tournament starts, so coaches will have to act fast in the event of a last-minute injury.

Household names like Kylian Mbappe, Harry Kane, Robert Lewandowski, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Rodri and Virgil van Dijk are fit and expected to feature in Germany.

We can also look forward to some of the brightest young talent in world football, such as Jude Bellingham, Florian Wirtz, Eduardo Camavinga and Spain’s 16-year-old Lamine Yamal.


Who will win Euro 2024?

Italy win Euro 20

England have been priced up as the most likely winner of Euro 2024, but we’ve heard that before.

The Three Lions were also the bookie's favourite when losing the 2020 final to Italy at Wembley.

If you're looking for help when it comes to backing the winner of the Euros, our very own Seb Sternik has answered the question 'Who will win Euro 2024?' in his tournament preview.

Few teams have gone back-to-back in the history of the European Championships, so the Italians will have a tough job retaining their crown.

France have been a regular in finals over the past decade and arguably has the most talented squad in the competition.

Hosts Germany will hope to lean on home advantage throughout the tournament, while Spain and Portugal can never be written off.
