The UFEA Euros 2020 will be the first European Championship to be held across the continent for the first time in the competition’s 60-year history. In all, there will be a total of 12 host cities and as many arenas. The concept from the 2016 UEFA Euro will be kept, with 24 participating teams instead of 16 as it has been in earlier tournaments.
Portugal are the defending champions after winning the 2016 edition.

Qualifiers for the 2020 UEFA Euro
Since the 2020 championship will have several host countries, none of them will be qualified automatically. So there is a chance that some of the hosting countries won’t qualify for the final tournament.
This means that all 55 UEFA nations will compete for the 24 spots in the final tournament. The qualifiers will run from March to November in 2019. The 55 nations will be split into ten groups of five or six. The top two teams from each group will advance to the final tournament, which will fill 20 of the spots. The final four spots will go to the winners in the new play-off system linked to the UEFA Nations League.
Nations League is a brand new tournament, which offers another way into the 2020 UEFA Euros. The four remaining spots to the final championship will go to the top four teams in Nations League. In theory, the 16 winners of the groups in Nations League will reach the play-offs. But if one of the group winners have already qualified through the European Qualifiers, their spot goes on to the next best-ranked team in their league.
The four best teams in the Nations League play-offs, which will be played in March 2020, will take the four final spots in the 2020 European Championship.
Host countries and arenas
The Uefa Euro 2020 will be hosted by a total of 12 countries. These are England, Azerbajian, Germany, Italy, Russia, Netherlands, Spain, Romania, Hungary, Denmark, Republic of Ireland and Scotland. This means that the championship will be played all over Europe, with the final being played at Wembley Stadium in London, England. All host countries that qualifies to the final tournament are guaranteed to play at least two of the group stage matches at home.
