UEFA decided to mix things up to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the inaugural tournament, and this one promises to be a true party! Of course, if you haven’t yet booked your flights/accommodation/match tickets, then it’s probably too late to see the action live.
But fear not, because there are still plenty of ways to enjoy the action from home. You can host viewing parties, back your team for glory using a free bet offer, and simply commit to making the tournament a priority for the month. The host cities will be there to enjoy long after the tournament has ended!
Amsterdam is a bicycle-friendly, canal-heavy city that offers plenty by way of fun during the summer months. After exploring the Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum, take yourself to Vondelpark.
