All eyes will be shed on Rome, where Euro 2020, the second biggest tournament in the world, will kick off with Italy clash against Turkey in the opening match.
The tournament goes ahead as planned with 11 host cities staging Euro 2020, despite fixtures being moved from Dublin and Bilbao.
Italy face Turkey in the curtain-raiser in Rome on Friday, marking the start of a month-long festival of football as 24 nations battle it out to be crowned champions at the London final in July.
The tournament will follow the same format as Euro 2016, with the top two in each group advancing to the last-16 along with four best third-place finishers.
All host cities will stage at least three group games and either a round-of-16 or quarter-final fixture, with Wembley taking over as the tournament’s permanent home from the semi-finals onwards.
