 UEFA has approved the expansion of national team applications for Euro 2024: how many players will be included in the squad

The number of players in the application for the tournament will increase from 23 to 26.

The European Football Union (UEFA) will increase the national teams' entries for Euro 2024 from 23 to 26 players.

According to Sky Sports, UEFA delegates have already voted for this. Now the corresponding decision must be approved by the organization's Executive Committee.

The proposal to increase the number of football players at the 2024 European Championship was put forward by the coaches of national teams. They called not to return to the traditional format with 23 players, but to allow 26 players to be included in the application, as was the case at Euro 2020, which took place in 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In turn, the International The Football Federation (FIFA), due to the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, has also expanded the national teams' entries for the 2022 World Cup to 26 players.

The Euro 2024 final tournament will be held in Germany from June 14 to July 14.

The Ukrainian national team at the 2024 European Championship will play in Group E, where its opponents will be Romania, Slovakia and Belgium.

The two best teams from each will advance to the 1/8 finals of the continental tournament six groups, as well as the four best third-place winners.

The Ukrainian national team will compete at the European Football Championship for the fourth time in a row. The most successful for the “blue-yellows” was the previous Euro 2020, where our team under the leadership of Andriy Shevchenko reached the quarterfinals.

It was previously reported that two Ukrainian referees will work at the Euro 2024 matches.
