The 2016 UEFA
UEFA
European Championship, commonly referred to as UEFA
UEFA
Euro 2016 or simply Euro 2016, was the 15th UEFA
UEFA
European Championship, the quadrennial international men's football championship of Europe organised by UEFA. It was held in France
France
from 10 June to 10 July 2016.[4][5] Spain
Spain
were the two-time defending champions, having won the 2008 and 2012 tournaments, but were eliminated in the round of 16 by Italy. Portugal
Portugal
won the tournament for the first time, following a 1–0 victory after extra time over the host team, France, in the final played at the Stade de France. For the first time, the European Championship final tournament was contested by 24 teams, having been expanded from the 16-team format used since 1996.[6] Under the new format, the finalists contested a group stage consisting of six groups of four teams, followed by a knockout phase including three rounds and the final. Nineteen teams – the top two from each of the nine qualifying groups and the best third-placed team – joined France
France
in the final tournament, who qualified automatically as hosts; a series of two-legged play-off ties between the remaining third-placed teams in November 2015 decided the last four finalist spots. France
France
was chosen as the host nation on 28 May 2010, after a bidding process in which they beat Italy
Italy
and Turkey
Turkey
for the right to host the 2016 finals.[7][8] The matches were played in ten stadiums in ten cities: Bordeaux, Lens, Lille
Lille
Métropole, Décines-Charpieu, Marseille, Nice, Paris, Saint-Denis, Saint-Étienne, and Toulouse. It was the third time that France
France
hosted the finals, after the inaugural tournament in 1960 and the 1984 finals. As the winners, Portugal
Portugal
earned the right to compete at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia.[9]

Qualification[edit] Main article: UEFA
UEFA
Euro 2016 qualifying The qualifying draw took place at the Palais des Congrès Acropolis
Palais des Congrès Acropolis
in Nice, on 23 February 2014,[5] with the first matches being played in September 2014.[4] A total of 53 teams competed for 23 places in the final tournament to join France, who have automatically qualified as hosts. Gibraltar competed in a European Championship qualifying for the first time since their affiliation to UEFA
UEFA
in 2013. The seeding pots were formed on the basis of the UEFA
UEFA
national team coefficients, with the Euro 2012 champions Spain
Spain
and hosts France
France
automatically top seeded. The 53 national sides were drawn into eight groups of six teams and one group of five teams. The group winners, runners-up, and the best third-placed team (with the results against the sixth-placed team discarded) qualify directly for the final tournament. The remaining eight third-placed teams contested two-legged play-offs to determine the last four qualifiers.[14][15][16] In March 2012, Gianni Infantino, the UEFA
UEFA
general secretary at the time, stated that UEFA
UEFA
would review the qualification competition to ensure that it was not "boring".[17] In September 2011, during UEFA's first ever full strategy meeting, Michel Platini
Michel Platini
proposed a qualification format involving two group stages, but the proposal was not accepted by the member associations.[18] In May 2013, Platini confirmed a similar qualifying format would be again discussed during the September 2013 UEFA
UEFA
executive committee meeting in Dubrovnik.[19] Qualified teams[edit] Thirteen of the sixteen teams (including hosts France) that qualified for Euro 2012 qualified again for the 2016 final tournament. Among them were England, who became only the sixth team to record a flawless qualifying campaign (10 wins in 10 matches),[20] defending European champions Spain, and world champions Germany, who qualified for their 12th straight European Championship finals.[21] Romania, Turkey, Austria
Austria
and Switzerland
Switzerland
all returned after missing out in 2012, with the Austrians qualifying for just their second final Euro tournament, after having co-hosted Euro 2008.[22] Returning to the final tournament after long absences were Belgium
Belgium
for the first time since co-hosting Euro 2000, and Hungary
Hungary
for the first time in 44 years, having last appeared at Euro 1972, and 30 years since appearing in a major tournament, their previous one being the 1986 FIFA World Cup. Five teams secured their first-ever qualification to a UEFA
UEFA
European Championship final tournament: Albania, Iceland, Northern Ireland, Slovakia
Slovakia
and Wales.[22] Northern Ireland, Slovakia
Slovakia
and Wales
Wales
had each previously competed in the FIFA World Cup, while Albania
Albania
and Iceland had never participated in a major tournament.[22] Similarly, both Austria
Austria
and Ukraine completed successful qualification campaigns for the first time, having only previously qualified as hosts (of 2008 and 2012 respectively). Scotland
Scotland
were the only team from the British Isles
British Isles
not to qualify for the finals,[23] and 2004 champions Greece
Greece
finished bottom in their group. Two other previous champions, the Netherlands
Netherlands
(1988) and Denmark (1992), missed out on the finals. The Dutch team failed to qualify for the first time since Euro 1984 (also held in France), missing out on their first major tournament since the 2002 FIFA World Cup and only 16 months after having finished third at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.[24] Denmark did not appear at the Euro finals for the first time since 2008, after losing in the play-off round against Sweden.

Venues[edit] Ten stadiums were used for the competition. Initially, twelve stadiums were presented for the French bid, chosen on 28 May 2010. These venues were to be whittled down to nine by the end of May 2011, but it was suggested in June 2011 that eleven venues might be used.[31][32] The French Football Federation
French Football Federation
had to choose which nine would actually be used. The choice for the first seven was undisputed – the national Stade de France, four newly constructed ones in Lille
Lille
Metropole (Villeneuve-d'Ascq), Décines-Charpieu, Nice
Nice
and Bordeaux, and two stadiums in the two largest cities, Paris
Paris
and Marseille. After Strasbourg

opted out for financial reasons following relegation,[33] two more venues were selected to be Lens and Nancy, leaving Saint-Étienne
Saint-Étienne
and Toulouse

as reserve options. In June 2011, the number of host venues was increased to eleven due to the new tournament format featuring 24 teams, instead of the previous 16.[34][35] The decision meant that the reserve cities of Toulouse
Toulouse
and St-Étienne joined the list of hosts. Then, in December 2011, Nancy announced its withdrawal from the tournament, after plans for the stadium's renovation were cancelled,[36] finalising the list of host venues at ten. Two other possible options, the Stade de la Beaujoire

and the Stade de la Mosson

Team base camps[edit] Each team had a "team base camp" for its stay between the matches. The teams trained and resided in these locations throughout the tournament, travelling to games staged away from their bases. From an initial list of 66 bases, the 24 participating teams had to confirm their selection with UEFA

by 31 January 2016.[38] The selected team base camps were announced on 2 March 2016:[39]

Finals format[edit] To accommodate the expansion from a 16-team finals tournament to 24 teams, the format was changed from that used in 2012 with the addition of two extra groups in the group stage, and an extra round in the knockout phases. The six groups (A to F) still contained four teams each, with the top two from each group still going through to the knockout phase. In the new format, however, the four best third-ranked sides also progress, leaving 16 teams going into the new round-of-16 knockout phases, ahead of the usual quarter-finals, semi-finals and final, and only 8 teams going out at the group stage.[17] The format is exactly the one which was applied to the 1986, 1990, and 1994 FIFA World Cups, except for the absence of a third place play-off. This format generates a total of 51 matches, compared with 31 matches for the previous 16-team tournament, to be played over a period of 31 days. UEFA's general secretary Gianni Infantino
Gianni Infantino
previously described the format as "not ideal" due to the need for third-ranked teams in the group stage advancing, leading to difficulty in preventing situations where teams might be able to know in advance what results they need to progress out of the group, leading to a lack of suspense for fans, or even the prospect of mutually beneficial collusion between teams.[17] Squads[edit] Main article: UEFA
UEFA
Euro 2016 squads Each national team had to submit a squad of 23 players, three of whom must be goalkeepers, at least ten days before the opening match of the tournament.[40] If a player became injured or ill severely enough to prevent his participation in the tournament before his team's first match, he would be replaced by another player.[16] Match officials[edit] On 15 December 2015, UEFA

named eighteen referees for Euro 2016.[41] The full referee teams were announced on 1 March 2016.[42] Hungarian referee Viktor Kassai

announced the tournament schedule on 25 April 2014,[46][47] which was confirmed on 12 December 2015, after the final draw.[48] Group winners, runners-up, and the best four third-placed teams advanced to the Round of 16. All times are local, CEST (UTC+2). Tiebreakers[edit] If two or more teams were equal on points on completion of the group matches, the following tie-breaking criteria would be applied:[16]

Higher number of points obtained in the matches played between the teams in question; Superior goal difference resulting from the matches played between the teams in question; Higher number of goals scored in the matches played between the teams in question; If, after having applied criteria 1 to 3, teams still had an equal ranking (e.g. if criteria 1 to 3 were applied to three teams that were level on points initially and these criteria separated one team from the other two who still have an equal ranking), criteria 1 to 3 would be reapplied exclusively to the matches between the teams who were still level to determine their final rankings. If this procedure did not lead to a decision, criteria 5 to 9 would apply; Superior goal difference in all group matches; Higher number of goals scored in all group matches; If only two teams had the same number of points, and they were tied according to criteria 1–6 after having met in the last round of the group stage, their ranking would be determined by a penalty shoot-out. (This criterion would not be used if more than two teams had the same number of points.); Fair play conduct (1 point for a single yellow card, 3 points for a red card as a consequence of two yellow cards, 3 points for a direct red card); Position in the UEFA

Issues[edit] Pre-tournament concerns included heavy flooding of the River Seine
River Seine
in Paris,[106] and strikes in the transport sector shortly before the beginning of the event.[107] Security[edit] Following the attacks on Paris
Paris
on 13 November 2015, including one in which the intended target was a game at the Stade de France, controversies about the safety of players and tourists during the upcoming tournament arose. Noël Le Graët, president of the French Football Federation, explained that the concern for security had increased following the attacks. He claimed: "there was already a concern for the Euros, now it's obviously a lot higher. We will continue to do everything we can so that security is assured despite all the risks that this entails. I know that everyone is vigilant. Obviously, this means that we will now be even more vigilant. But it's a permanent concern for the federation and the [French] state".[108] A "suspicious vehicle" near the Stade de France
France
was destroyed by a police-mandated controlled explosion on 3 July, hours before the venue held the quarter-final between France
France
and Iceland.[109] Hooliganism[edit] Further information: Violence at UEFA
UEFA
Euro 2016 The day before the tournament, fighting broke out between local youths and England
England
fans in Marseille; police dispersed the local youths with tear gas. On 10 June, English fans at Marseille
Marseille
clashed with police.[110] Six English fans were later arrested and sentenced to prison.[111] On 11 June, violent clashes erupted in the streets of the same city before and after the Group B match between England
England
and Russia
Russia
that ended in a 1–1 draw.[112] One English fan was reported to be critically ill in the hospital while dozens of others were injured in the clashes.[113] On 14 June, the Russian team were given a suspended disqualification, fined €150,000, and warned that future violence would result in their removal from the cup. Additionally, 50 Russian fans were deported. The English team was also warned about disqualification, but was not formally charged.[114][115] Violence between English and Russian fans arose again in Lille, where a total of 36 fans were arrested, and 16 people were hospitalised.[116] Late in the Group D match between the Czech Republic
Czech Republic
and Croatia, flares were thrown onto the pitch from where Croatia
Croatia
supporters were massed. The match was paused for several minutes while they were cleared up. There was also fighting in the Croatia
Croatia
supporters' area.[117] Later that same day, there was violence involving Turkish fans after Turkey's defeat by Spain. As a result of these incidents and earlier crowd troubles after the countries' first matches, UEFA launched official procedures against the Croatian and Turkish football federations.[118] The Croatian federation was fined €100,000 for the incidents.[119] Pitch quality[edit] The football pitches at French stadiums were criticized during the group stage for their poor quality. France
France
coach Didier Deschamps
Didier Deschamps
was especially critical.[120][121] UEFA
UEFA
tournament director Martin Kallen blamed heavy rain for damaged turf, though the press speculated that non-football events may have also been a contributor.[122][123] The pitch at Lille
Lille
received particular attention with players slipping continuously and with groundsmen forced at halftime to try and repair the cut up pitch.[124] Despite UEFA
UEFA
applying numerous methods to rectify the problems, such as a ban on pre-match training on the pitch, use of fertilisers, seeding, mowing, light therapy, drying and playing with the roof closed to avoid rain, it was decided that the pitch at Lille
Lille
had to be entirely replaced following the Italy– Republic of Ireland
Republic of Ireland
group match on 22 June.[125] The new pitch was replaced with Dutch grass and was ready before the last sixteen match between Germany
Germany
and Slovakia
Slovakia
on 26 June.[126][127][128] UEFA also stated that repair work was also required at the St Denis and Marseille
Marseille
pitches.[129] UEFA's Leeds-based consultant Richard Hayden had come under criticism as it was reported he ordered local groundsmen to re-lay three pitches (Lille, Nice, and Marseille) with Slovak grass, provided by an Austrian company for an estimated €600,000 (£460,000). On 22 June it was reported that France's grass association officials had blamed Hayden for continued problems with the pitches, citing "it is amazing that it is only these pitches that have problems today".[130] In a statement, UEFA
UEFA
rejected the criticism against Hayden as baseless and stated they were satisfied with his work.[129] Moths[edit] Before the final match started, the stadium was invaded by Silver Y moths, which caused some irritation to the players, staff and coaches. The reason this occurred is because the workers at the stadium left the lights switched on the day before the match which attracted huge swaths of insects. The players and coaches of each team during the warm-up tried swatting the moths, and ground staff used brushes to clean moths from the walls, ground and other places.[131][132] One moth was infamously captured flying on and around Cristiano Ronaldo's face when he was sitting on the pitch after being injured during the match.[133] Marketing[edit] Video game[edit] The UEFA

and Microsoft Windows).[136] The game was released physically and digitally on 21 April for PlayStation 3

PlayStation 4
users.[136] Logo and slogan[edit] The official logo was unveiled on 26 June 2013, during a ceremony at the Pavillon Cambon Capucines in Paris.[137] Conceived by Portuguese agency Brandia Central, which also created the visual identity for the previous European Championship, the design is based on the theme "Celebrating the art of football". The logo depicts the Henri Delaunay Trophy with the blue, white and red colours of the French flag, surrounded by a mixture of shapes and lines representing different artistic movements and football elements.[138] On 17 October 2013, UEFA
UEFA
announced the official slogan of the tournament: Le Rendez-Vous. Asked about its meaning, Jacques Lambert, chairman of the Euro 2016 organising committee, told that the slogan "is much more than a reminder of dates (...) and venues". He further explained that " UEFA
UEFA
is sending out an invitation to football fans throughout the world and to lovers of major events, an invitation to meet up and share the emotions of an elite-level tournament".[139] Match balls[edit] Main article: Adidas
Adidas
Beau Jeu For the first time in the tournament's history, two official match balls were used.[140] The Adidas
Adidas
Beau Jeu, used for the group stage, was unveiled on 12 November 2015 by former France
France
player Zinedine Zidane.[141] During the tournament, the Adidas
Adidas
Fracas was introduced as the exclusive match ball for the knockout rounds.[140] Mascot[edit] The official mascot of the tournament, Super Victor, was unveiled on 18 November 2014.[142] He is a child superhero in the kit of the France
France
national football team, with a red cape at the back, to echo the colours of the flag of France. The cape, boots and ball are claimed to be the child's superpowers. The mascot first appeared during the match between France
France
and Sweden
Sweden
at the Stade Vélodrome, Marseille
Marseille
on 18 November 2014. The name of the mascot was revealed on 30 November 2014 after receiving about 50,000 votes from the public on the official UEFA
UEFA
website, beating the other nominated names of "Driblou" and "Goalix".[143] It is based on the idea of victory and references the boy's super powers that he gained when he found the magic cape, boots and ball.[144] The name of the mascot is the same as the name of a sex toy. UEFA
UEFA
said that this 'coincidence' was not their responsibility because the name was selected by fan voting.[145] Official songs[edit] The competition's official opening song was "This One's for You" by David Guetta
David Guetta
featuring Zara Larsson, and the official closing song was "Free Your Mind" by Maya Lavelle.[146][147][148] It was reported that David Guetta

sought one million fans to add their voices to the official anthem via a website.[149] Sponsorship[edit]
