Well it’s here!
The UEFA Euro 2016, known to millions as Euro 2016, is the 15th of the UEFA European Championship, the quadrennial international men's football championship of Europe, organised by UEFA. It is currently being held in France and is on now until Saturday 10 July 2016.
For the first time, the European Championship final tournament is being contested by 24 teams, having been expanded from the 16-team format used since 1996.
The matches are being played in ten stadiums in ten cities: Bordeaux, Lens, Lille Métropole, Lyon, Marseille, Nice, Paris, Saint-Denis, Saint-Étienne, and Toulouse. It’s the third time that France has hosted the tournament, after the inaugural matches in 1960 and later in 1984 for the finals. The French team have won the European Championship twice: in 1984 and 2000.
