UEFA is considering increasing the number of players in the squad at Euro 2024

The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) is considering the possibility of increasing the number of players in the squad from 23 to 26 for each team at the final round of Euro 2024. The final decision will be made in the coming weeks, promising to create a dramatic and attractive tournament.

In the context where teams have to move more between 11 host cities and the dense schedule at Euro 2024, UEFA is seriously considering increasing the number of players for each team to minimize injuries and fatigue. This will be a breakthrough compared to the 23-player regulation that has existed since the tournament was born in 1960.

If passed, the expanded squad will bring many benefits such as reducing the risk of injury because players can rotate more frequently, limiting fatigue thanks to adequate rest, and increasing competition as teams have more choices. However, some opinions suggest that this could make the tournament less exciting because strong teams will have an advantage, and it will be more costly for smaller teams.

Top coaches like Didier Deschamps (France), Gareth Southgate (England), and Luis de la Fuente (Spain) all have opposing views on this proposal. While Deschamps supports it because he believes it will help reduce injuries and increase competition, Southgate is concerned about inequality and costs. Luis de la Fuente believes that UEFA needs to carefully consider the pros and cons.

Regardless of the outcome, UEFA’s final decision will certainly have a significant impact on the face of Euro 2024. The tournament promises many interesting surprises along with top performances from 24 top teams in the continent. Let’s wait and see if the teams will be allowed to bring 26 “warriors” or still have to squeeze within the traditional 23-player framework.

With the participation of the strongest European teams according to the Fifa ranking such as France (2) – England (3) – Belgium (4) – Netherlands (6) – Portugal (7) – Spain (8) – Italy (9) – Croatia (10) and bright stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappé, Harry Kane, Romelu Lukaku to promising young talents, Euro 2024 promises to bring top and dramatic matches.

EURO 2024 will take place in Germany from June 14 to July 14, 2024 in 10 cities in Germany with 24 participating teams. The teams are divided into 6 groups to select the first and second teams in each group, and the 4 third-ranked teams with the best performance win a ticket to the knock-out round. The opening match will be held on June 14 between host Germany and Scotland.
