The wait is over as Euro 2024 gets the ball rolling under a wave of anticipation next week.

Even if you don't have a ticket to Germany, that doesn't mean you can't get involved in the entertainment. That's thanks to the Liverpool Echo's free sweepstake givng you and your friends a chance to take a punt on this year's champion more easily than ever before.

Simply click the image below to download the sweepstake kits, cut out the 24 teams and draw them from a hat to see who you'll be rooting for this summer.

England finished as runners-up to Italy at Euro 2020 and are once again among the favourites three years on. However, it's Scotland who will get the ball rolling against hosts Germany on Friday, June 14, exactly one month before the campaign concludes at the Olympiastdion in Berlin on July 14.

The Liverpool Echo has covered all the bases so drawing a sweepstake couldn't be more straightforward. But only one lucky entrant can emerge as champion...

What is a sweepstake?

A sweepstake is a scheme usually organised between friends, family or colleagues around a sporting event. Participants usually pay a fee to play and are usually randomly assigned a team - but you can always play for fun and don't have to use money to compete.

If that team wins their respective tournament then the ‘owner’ of that team claims the prize. The rules can be slightly different depending on the hosts.

There could potentially be runners-up prizes, while semi-finalists have on occasion received their entry fee back. But the main prize is always reserved for the tournament’s winner.
