Deutsche Bahn Becomes National Partner Of UEFA EURO 2024
Deutsche Bahn has been named as an official national partner of UEFA EURO 2024.
All 24 teams and ticket holders from 32 European countries can enjoy eco-friendly travel by train, at reduced prices, to the ten tournament venues in Germany during the tournament, which runs from 14 June to 14 July 2024.
The partnership was presented at Berlin’s main railway station by Deutsche Bahn CEO Dr Richard Lutz, German federal minister of transport Dr Volker Wissing, and Philipp Lahm, the tournament director of UEFA EURO 2024, against the backdrop of an ICE train, specifically branded for the event.
“Europe is on the move and connected,” explained Philipp Lahm. “The partnership with Deutsche Bahn underlines our aspiration as hosts for a sustainable UEFA EURO 2024.
“Under the motto ‘United by football. United in the heart of Europe’, we want to facilitate unforgettable memories and create a pioneering spirit for a new sense of community, a new togetherness for Europe and our society.
“Strong supporters like Deutsche Bahn contribute to this. That’s why we are pleased that the railway will transport both players and millions of fans from home and abroad in an environmentally friendly manner to the match venues in Germany in summer 2024, enabling us to celebrate Europe’s cohesion in the best possible way.”
Dr Wissing, said: “For us, the European Championship experience begins with getting to the stadium. The task is enormous: We have to ensure that an average of around 56,000 guests and fans per match can reach the stadiums and fan zones safely and easily – in the host cities, nationwide and across borders.
“Our mobility concept focuses on rail and public transport. The partnership that has now been concluded between Deutsche Bahn and UEFA is a strong signal in this respect. I would like to see as many fans as possible take advantage of the offer to travel climate neutrally.”
Tickets for travel will be available from mid-January 2024, following the sale of match tickets which begin on 3 October 2023.
