Olympiastadion, Berlin

The Olympiastadion will host this summer's showpiece final and is no stranger to the big occasion. Hosting the Olympic Games in 1936, the year the stadium was built, it has since also been the venue for the 2006 World Cup final.

With a 70,000-seater capacity, Hertha Berlin's home is the largest stadium hosting games and is instantly recognisable too with its distinctive running track.

One of the oldest arenas in the country, somehow it also looks quite futuristic and hosted group games involving Spain and the Netherlands. For the remained of the tournament, Switzerland will meet Italy in the German capital in the Last 16 while the Netherlands could return and face Austria or Turkey in the quarters, if they get the better of Romania.

Then, on July 14, Berlin will welcome the two Euro 2024 finalists before one nation is crowned champions of the continent.

Allianz Arena, Munich

The 67,000-seater stadium is one of the most impressive in Europe and so a fine setting for two knockout matches. The arena where hosts Germany hammered Scotland on the opening night of the tournament will next welcome Romania vs Netherlands in the Last 16.

Bayern Munich's home, which boasts an exterior shell that lights up and changes colour, will also host one of the Euro 2024 semi-finals potentially featuring Spain, Germany, France, Belgium or Portugal.

BVB Stadion, Dortmund

The BVB Stadion's famous 'Yellow Wall' has been a variety of different colours so far at this summer's Euros with France, Italy, Portugal an Turkey all playing matches at the stunning arena in Dortmund.

Having hosted a total of ten World Cup fixtures dating back to 974 and 2006, the stadium will now add a Germany Euro match to the events its played home too with the nation facing Denmark in the Last 16 here in front of 66,000 passionate supporters.. Dortmund's ground will also host the other semi-final in July with the Netherlands, England or Italy among the potential sides in with a shout of playing in that fixture.

Veltins Arena, Schalke

The 50,000-capacity stadium hosted Spain's 1-0 victory over Italy in Group B and will again welcome England for the Three Lions' Last 16 tie with Slovakia having been the venue as Gareth Southgate's side recorded their only victory of the tournament so far when they defeated Serbia 1-0 courtesy of Jude Bellingham.

Frankfurt Arena, Frankfurt

Despite issues with the playing surface when England drew 0-0 with Denmark, Frankfurt's 46,000 stadium remains one of the standout arenas at this summer's Euro 2024 tournament and has acted swiftly to improve the pitch. Having welcomed host nation Germany for the last Group A game against Switzerland, there is one more game to be played in Frankfurt with Portugal taking on Slovenia in the Last 16.

With a retractable roof and many modern facilities having been renovated four times in its history, most recently for the 2006 World Cup, the Frankfurt Arena was able to address the pitch issue earnestly and will see Cristiano Ronaldo push to help his country reach the quarter-finals of the Euros.

Volksparkstadion, Hamburg

The Volksparkstadion is made for the big occasion but has not hosted top-flight football since 2018 when Hamburg were relegated from the Bundesliga. However the 50,000-seater arena has hosted two Czech Republic matches as well as the Netherlands vs Poland.

Its Euro 2024 will come in the quarter-finals when it hosts the winner of Portugal vs Slovenia against the victor of France vs Belgium.

Stuttgart Arena, Stuttgart

The Stuttgart Arena was renovated in 2011 having previously hosted non-football events and now hosts Stuttgart every other week in the Bundesliga. What's more, this summer, the ground which can hold 54,000 supporters, welcomed Germany and Hungary in the group stage and will also be the venue for the quarter-final between the winner of Spain vs Georgia and the side that comes out on top when Germany face Denmark.

Dusseldorf Arena, Dusseldorf

Built two decades ago, Euro 2024 is the first tournament the Dusseldorf Arena has hosted and soon it will be the stadium where France and Belgium go head-to-head in an epic Last 16 tie. Then, later in the competition, it will also host the quarter-final between the winners of England vs Slovakia and Switzerland vs Italy.

Cologne and Leipzig Ties
