The European Championship, which has been postponed until this summer, promises to be a championship unlike any other. The traditional model of bringing the continent’s finest players to one country for a football festival has been abandoned, and the competition will now be held across Europe.
Some teams will have to travel thousands of miles in such a short period of time during the group stage, from Glasgow to Baku and Seville to Saint Petersburg. The three teams that will cover the most distance are Switzerland (6,218 miles), Poland (5,876 miles), and Belgium (5,690 miles), whereas host nations like as England, Italy, Spain, Holland, and Germany will be able to enjoy home comforts for the majority of the tournament.
Because of the pan-European format, UEFA announced in January that each side will choose a home base from which to travel to and from their group games. Sportsmail has planned each team’s travel itinerary for the group stages using that list, starting with the initial trip from home to their training camp and ending with each and every match away from their base.
