Berlin is considered a favorite
But the capital wants more. This Tuesday (from 1 p.m.), the UEFA executive committee will decide on the final location of the EM 2024 in Germany. Berlin seems to be a house -high favorite towards the competitor Munich. “I can only say to everyone who is wondering what is the right answer: this is Berlin,” said the ruling mayor of the capital, Franziska Giffey, on Monday of the dpa. “As a sports metropolis, we are simply the city, which is best suited to shine internationally for such an event.” Munich is the strongest competitor with the arena of FC Bayern.
What role do the rainbow colors play in the EM 2021?
Awarding in football is always considered politically influenced decisions. Munich was hosting four games of the pan -European European Championship last summer. The debate about the stadium’s rainbow lighting, which was not only in the football world, had driven a wedge between UEFA and city tour as a sign of solidarity during the world event. The UEFA wanted to be politically neutral – very few could understand that.
Officially, the “schedule for the final round” is on the agenda of the meeting of the UEFA decision-making body in Vienna. The UEFA and the DFB confirmed that the stadiums are also assigned to the games. At the 2006 World Cup in Germany, the then newly built Munich arena was awarded the contract for the start. The final between Italy and France took place in the Berlin Olympic Stadium.
eight other EM venues
Places of venues at the tournament from June 14 to July 14 with 24 teams are also Hamburg, Frankfurt, Cologne, Dortmund, Gelsenkirchen, Düsseldorf, Leipzig and Stuttgart. The final round draw is scheduled to rise in the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg in December 2023. The international media center will have its place in Leipzig.
EM-Logo as a hint?
The Logo EM 2024 is inspired by the roof shape of the Berlin Olympic Stadium. A note? A recommendation of the DFB will probably be presented to the UEFA-Exko on Tuesday.
