When is the Euro 2020 final?

The Euro 2020 final takes place today, Sunday 11th July 2021.

It was supposed to take place on the same Sunday in 2020 but the tournament dates were simply knocked back an entire year due to the pandemic spread and restrictions.

What time does the Euro 2020 final kick off?

The Italy v England game will kick off at 8pm. As it's taking place in England, this means 8pm BST.

Conveniently, the location of the game and the tournament itself has meant no super early or extremely late starts for England fans.

How to watch the Euro 2020 final on TV: What TV channel is it on?

The game will be shown live on BBC and ITV today, Sunday 11th July.

Coverage begins on BBC at 6:20pm and 6:30pm on ITV so you can pick your Euro 2020 pundits and commentators on the night. For more information, visit our guide to how to watch Euro 2020 on TV.

How to live stream Euro 2020 final online

If you happen to be out and about during the Euro 2020 final, firstly, what are you doing?! Secondly, you have a back-up option to tune in for the game online.

BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub will both be fully operational and will stream the final live online.

Who is hosting the Euro 2020 final? Where it takes place

Wembley will host the Euro 2020 final in London, a year later than anticipated.

Wembley has a growing pedigree for hosting elite finals with the Champions League final, FA Cup, League Cup finals and EFL play-off finals all being held there.

However, the relatively 'new' Wembley Stadium is yet to host a major international tournament final, though the Euro 96 final was held at the old ground on the same site.

England fans will be desperate to see their side in the showpiece match on home soil.

How many fans will attend the Euro 2020 final?

The good news is that plenty of fans will attend the Euro 2020 final.

It has been confirmed that around 60,000 football fans will be at Wembley to watch Italy face England following rumours Boris Johnson could allow the stadium to host a crowd of 90,000.

The government were said to be considering the full-capacity option but we know know the number of fans in attendance will be approximately two-thirds of the total capacity Wembley can hold.

Games at Wembley were reduced to a maximum of 21,500 fans for group stage games, while England v Germany held 40,000 fans in the stands, before increasing to 60,000 for the semi-final against Denmark.

How to get Euro 2020 final tickets

Your current options for securing a ticket for the Euro 2020 final are either divine intervention or you suddenly realise that you are, in fact, UEFA President Alexander Ceferin.

Comparing Euro 2020 final tickets to gold dust would actually make entry to the final seem more reasonable than your chances actually are.

Many people actually had their final tickets cancelled due to the reduced capacities allowed for the game. Legal limits have been raised to over 60,000 fans though, meaning some tickets could be put back on sale, with those who saw theirs cancelled likely to be given first option at reclaiming them.

Who will referee the Euro 2020 final?

Dutch referee Bjorn Kuipers will officiate Italy v England in the Euro 2020 final.

The 48-year-old has yet to referee either side in this year's tournament.

Kuipers was the ref in charge when Italy beat England in the group stage of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Sander van Roekel and Erwin Zeinstra, also of the Netherlands, are the assistant referees for this year's final, while Carlos Del Cerro Grande of Spain is the fourth official.
