All of the ten cities that are hosting Euro 2024 matches are also hosting fan zones: areas where you can watch matches live, and sometimes find events like sports, esports and concerts on non-match days. 

Each of these fan zones will be open every day during Euro 2024 and are free to the public. 

Of course there will also be plenty of smaller venues showing the games – try your local pubs, Spätis and beer gardens, or you can watch games at home in many cases.

But for those who want to experience Euro 2024 live, here’s a list of the official fan zones:

Berlin

Two fan zones in Berlin are located at the Reichstag and at Brandenburg Gate, with a combined capacity of 40,000.

The fan zone in the Platz der Republik (in front of the Reichstag) will serve as Berlin’s hub for a Euro 2024 related cultural entertainment programme including live music, readings, workshops and DJ sets, among other highlights.

Germany’s capital is celebrating Euro 2024 here and across the city with what it’s calling “Fußballkultursommer 2024” (Football Culture Summer 2024).

But when you want to watch a match you can head to the Brandenburg Gate, where the world’s largest football goal has been set up to mark the occasion. 

Here Euro 2024 matches will be played on a large screen, framed by Berlin’s most iconic monument. On non-match days, films will be played on the screen on five summer evenings.

Munich’s fan zone will play all 51 games of Euro 2024 live, and also host an extensive entertainment programme including 30 bands, an open-air cinema, comedy shows, and street dance and poetry competitions, among other things.
