One of the largest sporting events on the planet, the UEFA Euros football tournament takes place every four years. Postponed in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the tournament will take place from 11th June – 11th July 2021, attracting the attention of a live audience of 5 billion viewers.
Our stamp designs celebrate the ways through which football can bring people together, following a theme of connection and unity during a time in which such privileges have been taken away. We utilise the official UEFA EURO 2020 artwork of host stadiums as well as iconic landmarks and scenery from eight host cities. In addition to this, the stamps are connected by a football pitch themed pathway, connecting fans across Europe through football.
The eight host cities featured are;
Baku – The first time Azerbaijan has hosted such a tournament, the Baku Olympic Stadium hosts Group A matches as well as a quarter final. The city hosted the 2019 UEFA Europa League Final.
Copenhagen – The largest stadium in Denmark, the Parken stadium will host Group B matches as well as a round of 16 match. The Nyhavn canal and the colourful houses alongside are pictured in order to represent the city. Denmark were crowned European champions with a 2-0 win over Germany in 1992 and will hope to repeat their famous victory this year.
Glasgow – Another British host of the tournament, Hampden Park will be a crucial advantage to Scotland, who will look to make history this summer. Having earned qualification in a tense match over Serbia in November 2020, Scotland feature in the tournament for just the third time in their history.
London – One of the key venues and host of both semi-finals and the final, Wembley in London is the epicentre of the tournament. England fans will dream of cheering their team on from the stands in the final match of the tournament on 11th July in their pursuit of the country’s first European Championship title.
Munich – The Football Arena Munich will host three Group F matches as well as a quarter final this summer. Germany have won the tournament three times; a joint record with Spain, and have played in six finals.
Rome – Host of the tournaments opening game, the Stadio Olimpico in Rome is one of the most iconic football stadiums in the world. The 1968 final was played at the Stadio Olimpico and won by the host nation Italy, who will hope to repeat their countries successes of the past.
Seville – The Estadio La Cartuja will host fans this summer. The city in southern Spain is presented alongside the stadium. Three time tournament winners Spain will hope to be victorious as they seek to be the most successful nation in European Championship history, their previous victory in 2012.
St. Petersburg – The second largest city in Russia, the Saint Petersburg stadium will be a hive of activity with seven matches scheduled to be played at the venue. St. Petersburg’s wealth of Baroque-style architecture is displayed next to the stadium.
