One of the most prestigious soccer tournaments in the world is on the cusp of the knockout stages: the UEFA European Championship, popularly known as the Euros or Euro 2021.

A total of 24 European nations have been battling it out during the month-long event, with the champion crowned on Sunday, July 11. Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal is the reigning champion. France is the bookmakers’ favorite and Belgium come into the event as the No. 1-ranked team in the world. A handful of other countries are contenders: England, Germany, Italy and Spain.

The event is traditionally hosted by a single country, but to celebrate the 60-year anniversary of the competition, hosting duties were expanded to include various nations: A total of 11 countries will host Euro 2021 matches this summer.

The tournament was scheduled to be held in the summer of 2020, but it was pushed a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s why you’ll still see it referred to as Euro 2020 in some places.
