The trophy that the winner of the European Football Championship will take home on July 11th will be in Amsterdam. The trophy is touring the 11 countries that host the European Championship. Tournament director Giggs de Jong, Ambassador Wesley Schneider, Amsterdam Member of Parliament Simon Cockenheim and director Henk Markerink from the Johan Cruyff Arena received the trophy at the Magiri Brugge in Amsterdam, which was also pictured on the emblem of the Dutch European Championship.
They toured Amsterdam with the trophy. For example, the group passed the two implementation executives in Amsterdam and the nursing staff at OLVG City Hospital. “For us, the people who work hard to control Coronavirus are the real heroes,” said Cockenheim. “They are there day and night to ensure everything is running smoothly. We have a lot of respect for that and we hope that we will be able to support that with our visit.”
The European Cup will tour through the Netherlands on Saturday. For example, former goalkeeper Hans van Brueckelen may once again retain the trophy he won with the Orange team in 1988.
Joy and teamwork
Amsterdam will host four matches in the European Championship, including the three-group duels for the Dutch national team. The Dutch national team starts the tournament on June 13 against Ukraine and then plays in the Arena against Austria (June 17) and Macedonia (June 21). On 26 June, a match from the eighth final is scheduled in Amsterdam. Next month, at least 12,000 spectators are expected to be able to enter ArenA. “We look forward to a unique sporty summer that will bring joy and teamwork again,” says De Jong. “The mental oxygen we crave together.”
Dutch DJ Martin Garrix released the official track for the European Championship on Friday, which he made with Bono and The Edge of U2. The song “We Are The People We’ve Been Waiting” will be played live during the opening ceremony of the European Championship on June 11th in Rome.
