Everything you need to know about the new Euro 2024 rules and regulations

Must read

With less than a week before the 2024 European Championships kick-off in Germany, supporters from across the continent are gearing up for what is set to be another brilliant international display of football.

After pre-tournament favourites England’s surprise 1-0 loss to Iceland ahead of the competition, nerves weren’t settled with the likes of France, Spain, Italy and Portugal all posing threats to the Three Lions this year with star-studded squads.

Gareth Southgate’s men are looking to go one step better this time around following the heartbreaking Euro 2020 final defeat on penalties to the Italians at Wembley three years ago, and will look to build on their semi-final and quarter-final exits from the 2018 and 2022 World Cups respectively under the former England international.

It won’t be an easy path to the final for them either, with Serbia, Denmark and Slovenia in the group stage before a potentially brutal knockout stage which could see them face hosts Germany, Spain or France all before the semi-finals. But with the 26-man squad announced on Thursday afternoon, captain Harry Kane will once again lead his side on another mission to bring football home.

So with that being said, here are all the important rules and regulations that have changed since the 2020 Euros three years on.
