Euro 2021 - Groups

There are a total of 24 teams who have qualified for this year’s delayed Euro 2021 tournament. 

euro 2021 groups

Of the home nations, England, Scotland and Wales have all qualified for the the tournament, with both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland having missed out. Scotland famously qualified through the back door, after David Marshall’s heroics in goal saw them dispatch Serbia in their playoff final in Belgrade to seal their place in a major tournament for the first time since the 1998 World Cup in France.

Scotland and England have been drawn in the same group alongside Croatia and Czech Republic. This means that there will be a blockbuster clash between Scotland and England at Wembley on June 18th!

Wales have been drawn in a fairly tough group with Italy, Switzerland and Turkey. There’s also a tasty group of death containing France, Germany and reigning champions Portugal - who are joined by the unfortunate Hungry.

You can find a full list of the Euro 2021 groups below:

  • Group A: Italy, Switzerland, Turkey, Wales
  • Group B: Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Russia
  • Group C: Austria, Netherlands, North Macedonia, Ukraine
  • Group D: Croatia, Czech Republic, England, Scotland
  • Group E: Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden
  • Group F: France, Germany, Hungary, Portugal

Euro 2021 - Fixtures

euro 2021 schedule

Euro 2021 kicks off on Friday June 11th with Turkey vs Italy in Rome. Wales are the first of the home nations in action, as they face Switzerland on Saturday June 12th. England play a repeat of their World Cup semi final against Croatia in their opening game on Sunday June 13th.

Scotland are the last of the three home nations to kick-start their Euro 2021 campaign, as the Tartan Army have to wait until Monday June 14th to see their nation play in their first major tournament fixture since 1998. They face the Czech Republic in a home tie at Hampden Park in Glasgow.

When is England vs Scotland Euro 2021?

The blockbuster fixture of the Euro 2021 tournament, from a UK perspective at least, is England vs Scotland - the oldest fixture in world football. This match will be taking place on home soil for England at Wembley, kicking off at 8pm GMT.

Scotland last met “the Auld Enemy” at Hampden during the qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The last match was a memorable encounter at Hampden. Scotland were trialing England 1-0, before Leigh Griffiths stepped up to score two almost identical free kicks in the second half to put Scotland ahead. It was to be yet another glorious failure for the Scots though, as Harry Kane inflicted heart ache with a last minute equaliser for the Three Lions.

Euro 2021 - Other Notable Group Fixtures

Looking at the other remaining home nation, Wales get their big chance to cause an upset when they play Italy on June 20th. The other marquee fixtures in the group stages naturally all come from Group F - the so-called “group of death”.

In this group, you can watch France vs Germany on Tuesday June 14th, followed by Portugal vs Germany in June 19th. The final group game on June 23rd is a repeat of the Euro 2016 final, as Portugal take on France.

venue euro 2021

England and Scotland will each get to play two of their group games in their respective home stadiums of Wembley and Hampden Park. Wales have been delt a a bit of a short straw, as two of their group games will take place in Baku, Azerbaijan. Their match against Italy will take place at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

All games from the semi finals onwards will take place at Wembley Stadium.

Euro 2021 - Venue Changes

There had been group and round of 16 games due to take place at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin and in Bilbao. However, local authorities in both regions were unable to give guarantees about fan admission in time for the UEFA deadline back in April.

The group games originally scheduled to take place in Dublin will now take place in St. Petersburg in Russia. The round of 16 fixtures that were planned to take place in Dublin have now been moved to Wembley Stadium in London. Bilbao’s group fixtures will remain in Spain, however they have been moved much further south, to Seville.
