What to Expect in Euro 2021?


The summer tournament was slated for a pushed-back date because of the pandemic across Europe and everywhere else in the world. This even caused many suspensions of major and minor sports worldwide, not just the football leagues.

Euro 2020

Everyone is pretty much excited, to say the least for Euro 2020 but it has to be pushed a year later. Football fans and bettors miss the good old times where they get to feel the thrill of getting live football results to see if they’ve won the bets.

Every single football league such as La Liga, the Premier League, Bundesliga, and Serie A have all been moved to a much later date, too. It means they have to squeeze all the games they could finish before Euro 2020 can even take place.

We’re nearly approaching the end of the year and many people have been wondering what to expect in Euro 2021. There are lots of questions going around and online football fans wanted some answers. Today, we will be answering some of the most frequently asked questions about Euro 2021.

Where will Euro 2021 take place?

The following have been re-confirmed to host the Euro 2021:

  • Amsterdam
  • Baku
  • Bilbao
  • Bucharest
  • Budapest
  • Copenhagen
  • Dublin
  • Glasgow
  • London
  • Munich
  • Rome
  • St. Petersburg

Wembley was supposed to host the Euro 2020 and would likely be hosting the Euro 2021 at Wembley Stadium still. It is also said that the tournament would take place in about the same timeframe as what they did with Euro 2020. Champions League 2020-21 will be held in St. Petersburg, Russia to avoid conflict with Euro 2021.

Meanwhile, the Premier League 2020-21 was supposed to start last August 8 which had disrupted the Champions League group stages.

When will it be?

What UEFA made as confirmation is that the play-offs for Scotland, the Republic of Ireland, and Northern Ireland were scheduled for October and November 12. The fixtures are as follows:

October 8: Play-off semi-finals

  • P. A: Iceland vs Romania, Bulgaria vs Hungary
  • P. B: Bosnia and Herzegovina vs Northern Ireland, Slovakia vs the Republic of Ireland
  • P. C: Scotland vs Israel, Norway vs Serbia
  • P. D: Georgia vs Belarus, North Macedonia vs Kosovo

November 12: Play-off finals

  • P. A: Bulgaria/Hungary vs Iceland/Romania
  • P. B: Bosnia and Herzegovina/Northern Ireland vs Slovakia/Republic of Ireland
  • P. C: Norway/Serbia vs Scotland/Israel
  • P. D: Georgia/Belarus vs North Macedonia/Kosovo

As per estimates, England will likely start their campaign on June 11 next year. The match between Croatia and Wembley was originally scheduled a day later June 14.

It is predicted that the Three Lions will have the advantage of all three of their group games. Their second fixture is slated to happen on June 18 against whoever will win the play-off of Path C. England’s final group game will be facing the Czech Republic and it would likely move to June 22, 2021.


What should Euro 2020 ticket-holders do?

UEFA confirmed that existing ticket buyers can have a full ticket refund if they will not be able to attend Euro 2021. Although, hopes are high that by that time, the pandemic would have already subsided or at least at its minimum state.

They have already rolled further information about the refund process and all other Euro 2021-related information on their website and they will also be sending out emails.

Things to look forward to in Euro 2021

Due to public health concerns, UEFA has decided to move Euro 2020 by a year. While it’s definitely a bummer to wait until June 11 of next year, experts believe that the event will have a very positive and successful comeback.

Euro 2021 remains to be one of soccer’s biggest events and travel packages for it are still getting sold very well. There are lots of private airport transfers and transportations, including accommodations that UEFA themselves are arranging.

We all know that people are more eager to see the action in person than to watch football online. It’s just going to be a few month’s worths of a wait. For now, don’t forget to bet on your favorite sportsbooks as we approach the date. Solarbet online football betting site is a great place to make your wagers at.

So go ahead and bet to your heart’s content. You can even catch a lot of online football action and relive the excitement while it lasts.
