Euro 2024 finally kicks-off on Friday, with the 51 games across the four weeks to be staged across ten stadiums in Germany.

The opening game of the tournament will see the hosts take on Scotland, with Steve Clarke’s men facing a daunting opening night at the Allianz Arena in Munich.

England, meanwhile, will kickstart their Euro 2024 campaign against Serbia on Sunday night at the Veltins-Arena in Gelsenkirchen, with the Three Lions hoping that is the first of seven games en route to the final in Berlin.

Germany is no stranger to hosting major international football tournaments, most recently having staged the 2006 World Cup, with nine of the ten stadiums in use 18 years ago set to see action once again.

Here is your full guide to the venues which will host games at the Euros.
