    The slogan of Euro 2024 is: "United by Football. Vereint im Herzen Europas". This slogan reinforces the message of unity, togetherness and inclusiveness. [ref]

    Promotion and sponsoring European Championship 2024

    Sponsors of EURO 2024 have plenty of opportunities and opportunities to make themselves known during the event. UEFA's commercial partners can not only benefit from a well-organised tournament in Germany, but the impact will also be felt in the longer term. The European Championship will be the perfect stage for commercial success.

    In the context of safety and health, it is prohibited in the host country to promote tobacco products and to smoke around the stadiums. Fortunately, it is allowed to promote alcohol and drink beer, if not shown to children. Betting on the European Football Championship is also allowed, so that you can make the football tournament even more exciting.

    Social responsibility of Euro 2024

    In recent years, sustainability has become increasingly important and is increasingly on the agenda. There is an increasing awareness of environmental problems such as climate change, social problems such as racism and discrimination, and economic problems such as corruption and unethical behaviour.

    UEFA sees the opportunity to raise awareness worldwide through the European Football Championship. The football association therefore urges host country Germany to follow social norms and values. Both parties have incorporated sustainability into their way of working at such large events for years.

    The German football association DFB, like UEFA, has a large network under itself, for which it must determine the norms and values. The DFB controls 5 regional associations, 21 federal states and 26,000 football clubs. The reach of the sustainability message is therefore enormous.

    Thanks to the central location of the host country in Europe and the excellent train network, transport and transport will already be largely environmentally friendly. Other infrastructure, including the airports and football stadiums, are already in very good condition, so no additional investments are necessary.

    Social responsibility also includes data protection and privacy. UEFA and the organizer of EURO 2024 will respect these rights in accordance with international standards. 

    Stakeholders include UEFA, the organization, participants, volunteers, ambassadors, commercial partners, suppliers, host cities, (local) governments, media, and football fans.

    5 dimensions of social responsibility 

    To ensure that the football tournament leaves a positive impression on society, 5 dimensions have been identified: 

    • Environment : CO2 neutral, limiting CO2 emissions, no renovations to stadiums, organic and regional food, optimized water and energy consumption, recycling of waste. 
    • Diversity and inclusion: minorities are represented, gender equality, anti-racism and discrimination.  
    • Solidarity: employment and training opportunities. 
    • Good governance: respect human rights, transparent management. 
    • Health: promotion of healthy lifestyle and food, ban on smoking in stadiums. 

    UEFA and the organization are aware of the current environmental problems and the consequences for the future of football. That is why special attention is drawn to the environment and the footprint of the European Football Championship.
