With the European Championship fast approaching, eleven cities across Europe are preparing to host this summer’s tournament.

UEFA and the nations involved have come a long way since Euro 2020 was rescheduled last year due to the pandemic, with the competition finally set to go ahead with 51 matches to be played over 31 days.

Here is a look at the venues hosting games, and the current capacity limits in place due to the coronavirus pandemic.
