UEFA President Michel Platini said the tournament is being hosted in several nations as a "romantic" one-off event to celebrate the 60th "birthday" of the European Championship competition.Having the largest capacity of any of the stadiums entered for the competition, Wembley Stadium in London is scheduled to host the semi-finals and final for the second time, having done so before at the 1996 tournament in the stadium's former incarnation. The Stadio Olimpico in Rome was chosen to host the opening game, involving Turkey and hosts Italy. Originally to be played at 13 venues, two hosts were later removed: Brussels in December 2017 due to delays with the building of the Eurostadium,[5] and Dublin in April 2021 as there was no guarantee for spectators to attend. Spain also changed their host city from Bilbao to Seville to allow an audience at matches.

Portugal are the defending champions, having won the 2016 competition. For the first time, the video assistant referee (VAR) system will be used at the UEFA European Championship.

Each city will host three group stage matches and one match in the round of 16 or quarter-finals, with the exception of Saint Petersburg, which will host six group stage matches, and London, which will host two matches in the round of 16. The match allocation for the eleven stadiums is as follows:

Group stage, round of 16, semi-finals and final: London (England). Group stage and quarter-finals: Baku (Azerbaijan), Munich (Germany), Rome (Italy), Saint Petersburg (Russia). Group stage and round of 16: Amsterdam (Netherlands), Bucharest (Romania), Budapest (Hungary), Copenhagen (Denmark), Glasgow (Scotland), Seville (Spain)

The host cities were divided into six pairings, established on the basis of sporting strength (assuming all host teams qualify), geographical considerations and security/political constraints. The pairings were allocated to groups by means of a random draw on 7 December 2017. Each qualified host country will play a minimum of two matches at home. The following group venue pairings were announced:

  • Group A: Rome (Italy) and Baku (Azerbaijan)
  • Group B: Saint Petersburg (Russia) and Copenhagen (Denmark)
  • Group C: Amsterdam (Netherlands) and Bucharest (Romania)
  • Group D: London (England) and Glasgow (Scotland)
  • Group E: Originally Bilbao (Spain) and Dublin (Republic of Ireland) Later changed to Seville (Spain) and Saint Petersburg (Russia)[a]
  • Group F: Munich (Germany) and Budapest (Hungary)

The following criteria apply to define the home matches of host teams within the same group:

If both host teams qualified directly or both advanced to the play-offs, a draw would determine which team would play all three group stage matches at home (i.e. which would host the head-to-head match), and which one would play only two matches at home. If one host team qualified directly, and the other failed to also directly qualify, the directly qualified host team would play all three group stage matches at home, and the other host, if qualified, would play only two. If one host team advances to the play-offs, and the other is eliminated entirely, the host team in the play-offs, if qualified, will play all three group stage matches at home.

No action was necessary should both host teams fail to qualify.

If a host team in the play-offs failed to qualify, the path winner will take the spot of the host in the match schedule and therefore would play the two or three matches based on the above criteria in the host city of the respective host that failed to qualify. The draw took place on 22 November 2019, 12:00 CET, at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland (along with the draw for the play-offs). In the draw, which was only necessary for Group B (Denmark and Russia), two balls were prepared, with the first drawn hosting the three matches.
