Euro 2020 – Match ball, mascot and slogan
The Uniforia ball will be the match ball for all Euro 2020 matches. It has been designed by Adidas. The ball is mostly white and includes multi-coloured black strokes with additional blue, neon and pink stripes. The name of the ball is taken from the combination of the words “unity” and “euphoria”.
‘Skillzy‘ will be the official mascot of the tournament. The character is inspired by freestyling, street and panna culture.
The Euro 2020 slogan is “Live It. For Real“.
Euro 2020 – Official song
The UEFA officials have confirmed that famous Dutch DJ Martin Garrix will be producing the official anthem for the upcoming UEFA EURO 2020 football tournament, which will be unveiled at the full opening ceremony in Rome at the Stadio Olimpico.
Garrix said: “It’s an incredible honour to be asked to create the official song for Euro 2020 and I am so excited to let everyone hear it.”
Euro 2020 – Why not Euro 2021?
UEFA pushed back the tournament a year due to the complications of the Covid-19 pandemic but it has been confirmed by UEFA that it will still be called Euro 2020 and not Euro 2021. The reason behind this decision is that most marketing and promotional materials were already branded with ‘Euro 2020’ and they are unwilling for it to go to waste.
