Euro 2020 will be spread across Europe as UEFA celebrates the 60th anniversary of their prestigious international tournament.

Unlike previous editions where one, maybe two, countries shouldered the burden, a total of 11 cities in countries all across the continent will share the hosting duties.

It is an unprecedented move, intended as a one-off, and usual service will resume in 2024 with Germany serving as the sole host nation.

A number of major changes had to be made in the lead up to the tournament in 2021 arising out of Covid-19 restrictions, with Seville replacing Bilbao as a host city and Dublin's games split between Saint-Petersburg and London.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said: "We have been working diligently with the host associations and local authorities to ensure a safe and festive environment at the games and I am really pleased that we are able to welcome spectators at all matches for a celebration of national team football across the continent."

Ahead of the tournament, Goal brings you everything you need to know about all 11 venues, including where they are, capacities, which games they'll host and more.
