Euro 2024 will be the 17th edition of the European Championship, a tournament that began way back in 1960. This competition will feature 24 teams and will be hosted by Germany between June 14 and July 14 of next year.
Only the World Cup is considered a more important and prestigious event by European nations than the European Championship, so the continent’s major powers will be going all-out for victory next summer.
Who will end up lifting the trophy? We have compiled the latest betting odds below, after which we will explore Euro 2024 in more detail.

France are the current favorites to win Euro 2024 with the best online sportsbooks. World champions in 2018, they finished as runners-up at World Cup 2022, narrowly losing on penalties to Argentina. Didier Deschamps is an experienced international manager and he has a huge talent base to call upon.
England finished second at Euro 2020 and will be looking to go one better at the next edition. Gareth Southgate has made the team a force again and the Three Lions have a good blend of youth and experience.
Germany have had a disappointing few years but they can never be written off. Home advantage is a boost but Hansi Flick may be a little concerned about the national team’s defensive capabilities.
Spain recently won the UEFA Nations League under their new boss Luis de la Fuente. They have some bright young players to call upon but la Roja are still in transition following Luis Enrique’s departure.
Italy missed out on World Cup 2022 but they could be contenders at Euro 2024. The Azzurri have a track record of success but they are not among the outright favorites this time around.
Italy were the winners of Euro 2020. They finished top of their group thanks to victories over Turkey, Switzerland, and Wales. They then beat Austria, Belgium, and Spain in the knockout phase, before overcoming England on penalties in the final.
England finished first in their group ahead of Croatia, the Czech Republic, and Scotland. They knocked out Germany, Ukraine, and Denmark in the round of 16, quarter-finals and semi-finals respectively, before going down to Italy.
For the first time, Euro 2020 was held across multiple countries around the continent. Despite its name, the tournament was held in 2021 after the Covid-19 pandemic forced a 12-month postponement.

Twenty-four teams will qualify for Euro 2024. When the tournament was launched in 1960, only four sides took part in the finals. The competition grew to eight participants in 1980, then 16 in 1996. Euro 2016 was the first time the event contained 24 teams.
The qualification process is underway, with 23 spots up for grabs (hosts Germany have been guaranteed a berth). The top two in each of the 10 qualification groups will advance to Euro 2024, as will the winners of three play-off tournaments.
A total of 35 nations have competed at the European Championship before. Possible debutants next year include Kazakhstan, Georgia, and Armenia. Russia will not be present after UEFA disqualified the country following the invasion of Ukraine.
The 24 teams at Euro 2024 will be divided into six groups of four. The top two in each group will advance to the round of 16, where they will be joined by the four third-place finishers with the best record.
At both Euro 2016 and Euro 2020, teams have advanced to the knockout stage after collecting only three points in the group phase - including, incidentally, the eventual champions Portugal in 2016.
Euro 2024 will be held in Germany between June 14 and July 14. Germany won the hosting rights in 2018, beating a rival bid from Turkey by 12 votes to four. This will be the second European Championship held on its soil, after 1988.
“I feel a great relief, the pressure was huge,” said Philipp Lahm, a former Germany international who was involved in the bidding process.
“We can celebrate a big party together at our home. We have great stadiums and fans who love football.”
Euro 2028 will be held in either Turkey or the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. The hosts will be confirmed in September 2023 after a vote. Russia declared an interest in hosting the tournament but UEFA deemed them ineligible.
