UEFA Euro 2020: Google Doodle honours the commencement of European Football Championship


Google Doodle for UEFA Euro 2020: The event, which will take place in 11 venues across 11 UEFA member countries, was initially slated to take place from June 12 to July 12, 2020. Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, it was postponed and rescheduled for 12 June to 12 July 2021.

The commencement of the 2020 UEFA European Football Championship was celebrated by Google's doodle on Friday. It begins with a match between Turkey and Italy in the Stadio Olimpico, Rome's largest sports arena.

The event, which would take place in 11 locations across 11 UEFA member states, was initially slated to take place from June 12 to July 12, 2020. Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, it was postponed and rescheduled for June 12 to July 12, 2021. However, the competition will continue to be known as "UEFA Euro 2020."

The curtain-raiser for UEFA Euro 2020 will be Italy vs. Turkey, with the Azzurri and Crescent-Stars meeting in Roma's Stadio Olimpico in a match that would have been played over a year ago. It also marks the first time many European fans will be allowed to visit stadiums again, albeit in a restricted capacity.

For the first time in history, the UEFA Euro, which has been a staple competition for football fans across the world since 1960, is being held in 11 different locations across Europe. All of the teams are placed into six groups, each with four teams, including the defending UEFA Euro champions Portugal and FIFA World Cup winners France. The top two teams in each group, as well as the four best third-placed teams, will advance to the competition's last-16 stage, which begins on June 26.

Seven of the eleven host countries have qualified for the tournament: Denmark, England, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Russia, and Spain. Hungary and Scotland made it through the play-offs, but Romania and Azerbaijan were eliminated. Finland and North Macedonia are the two teams making their debuts.

The pandemic's shadow casts a long shadow over the world's second-largest international football tournament, with the organizers enforcing several measures to that end.

On SonyLIV, you'll be able to watch all of the UEFA Euro 2020 matches live. In India, the full competition will be broadcast on SONY TEN 2 and SONY TEN 3.
