One of the most prestigious football matches in the world is entering the knockout stage: the European Football Championship, commonly known as the European Cup or the 2021 European Cup.
In the one-month event, a total of 24 European countries are vying for the championship, which will be crowned on Sunday, July 11. Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal is the defending champion. France is the betting company’s favorite, Belgium is the world’s number one team. A few other countries are competitors: England, Germany, Italy and Spain.
The event is traditionally hosted by one country, but to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the game, the hosting responsibilities have been expanded to include all countries: this summer, a total of 11 countries/regions will host the 2021 European Cup.
The competition was originally scheduled to be held in the summer of 2020, but was postponed for a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is why you will still see it called Euro 2020 in some places.
