Euro 2024: Tournament guide

Ahead of the tournament we released our 164-page guide for supporters travelling to the Euros, complete with guides to all the German cities England will (and could potentially be) playing in.

As always that includes a detailed look at transport options, venues, food and drink and much more. Our Fans’ Embassy team may have a few hard copies left on hand, so check in with them to see if you’re after a copy otherwise the digital version is still available to download – it’s worth saving on your phone just in case.
