The UEFA European Football Championship 2020 (also known as the UEFA Euro 2020) was the 16th UEFA European Football Championship. It took place between 11 June and 11 July 2021. It was held in 11 cities in 11 different countries. This was done because 2020 was the 60th "birthday" of the UEFA European Football Championship.[3]

Portugal were the defending champions. However, Italy won their 2nd title after defeating England.

The games were postponed to mid-2021 on 17 March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.[4]
