Euro 2020 will keep its name

Despite being postponed to June 2021, the European Championships will continue to be called Euro 2020, announced UEFA.

The event marks the 60th anniversary of the European Football Championships, as the first edition was held in 1960.

It has been postponed to next summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic and there were question marks over whether the name of the competition would also change.

However, the UEFA Executive Committee decided today that it will continue to be known as Euro 2020, even though it’ll be played in 2021.

“This choice is in line with UEFA’s commitment to make UEFA EURO 2020 sustainable and not to generate additional amounts of waste. A lot of branded material had already been produced by the time of the tournament’s postponement. A change to the name of the event would have meant the destruction and reproduction of such items.”
