• This is the 16thedition of the Euro Champ finals, 61 years after the inaugural tournament in France (1960). This is the first time the tournament will take place in an odd year.

  • 24 teams are taking part in Euro Champ 2020, with Finland and North Macedonia the only nations to make their debut in the competition. A record four debuting teams made the knockout stages of the last Euro Champ in 2016 (Iceland, N. Ireland, Slovakia, Wales).

  • The final of Euro Champ 2020 will be played at Wembley Stadium. Both previous major international tournament finals played at Wembley went to extra-time and both involved Germany (W Cup 1966, Euro Champ 1996).

  • This will be J. Löw's seventh major tournament (W Cup & Euro Champ) as Germany head coach, setting a new record for the Nationalmannschaft. He has taken charge of 17 Euro Champ games, also a record. Löw has led Germany to the semi-finals in five of his six previous tournaments, with the only exception coming at W Cup 2018 (k/o in group stages).

  • If France's D. Deschamps lifts the trophy at Euro Champ 2020, he would become the first person ever to win the W Cup and Euro Champ both as player and manager. He's also the only manager at Euro Champ 2020 to have won the tournament as a player.
