With as many as ten stadiums in ten different host cities, Germany has been selected as the host country. During the Championship, 51 matches will be played, with the final taking place on July 14th in the Berlin stadium.
The schedule has not yet been announced, and therefore the host cities for the Dutch team are also not yet known. The qualification begins on March 23rd, 2023, and will conclude in November 2023, after which the participating countries in the Championship will be known.

Roland Garros and Wimbledon

Are you a tennis lover? Then you will be thrilled by Roland Garros in Paris (May 20th to June 2nd) and Wimbledon in London (July 1st to July 14th). These major tennis tournaments attract many visitors each year, who come to admire the great 'tennis heroes'. From the preliminary rounds to the finals; these tennis tournaments remain exciting to watch.

Tour de France

Cycling enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the annual cycle tour through France. With the grand start in the historic centre of Florence, the 111th edition will begin in beautiful Italy. The full route is not yet known.
The Tour starts on June 29th, 2024, and finishes on July 21st. Traditionally, the riders always finish in Paris, but this time they may finish in Nice. This is due to safety concerns preventing two major sporting events in Paris.
