Where are the Czechs playing matches in the Euro 2024 group
Lot of basic groups, which took place on Saturday, December 2, 2023, assigned the Czechs Turkey, Portugal and the winner of play-off C, thus becoming one of the quartet of Georgia, Luxembourg, Greece or Kazakhstan. The most favored are the Greeks, who we don’t have very good memories of in the semi-finals of Euro 2004.
The first match will be played by the Czech national football team on Tuesday 18 June 2024 from 21:00 in Leipzig against Portugal. The match will take place at the stadium where RB Leipzig plays its home matches. The stadium boasts a capacity of around 42,000 spectators. Great interest in tickets from Czech fans is expected. The attraction can be the stadium’s distance from the borders of the Czech Republic (approx. 2 hours), but also Portugal itself, for which one of the best footballers in the world, the star Cristiano Ronaldo, could play.
For the next two matches in the group, the Czechs will move to Hamburg, to the Imtech Arena, which is the home of the Hamburger SV team, which plays in the second highest German competition. The capacity of the stadium is 50,000 spectators (capacity listed on the UEFA website). Hamburg in the north of Germany can be reached by car from the borders of the Czech Republic in about 6 hours.
We will play the first match there on Saturday, June 22, 2024 from 3 p.m. against the winner of play-off C. We will conclude our group struggles in a match against Turkey on Wednesday 26 June 2024 from 21:00 in the evening.
