Uefa to launch Euro 2024 tender in Germany on June 11

European football’s governing body Uefa said on Friday that an invitation to tender for the media rights to Euro 2024 in its host country of Germany will be launched on June 11.

The sales process will be administered by CAA Eleven, Uefa’s exclusive marketing agency for the sale of certain media and commercial rights relating to its national team competitions.

A deadline for the submission of bids has been set for July 9.

Uefa awarded hosting rights for Euro 2024 to Germany last September.

Germany landed the rights to the national team showpiece after defeating a rival bid from Turkey.
