Background

The fifteenth European Championship Finals were awarded to France on 28 May 2010 at the UEFA Executive Committee meeting in Geneve.

 There were four initial representations bidding for the right to host the 2016 Tournament. However, in December 2009, due to a lack of political support, the joint-bid from Sweden and Norway was withdrawn. So in May 2010, after Italy were eliminated after the first round of voting, the French and Turkish bids went to a second round of votes.

France gained seven votes, and Turkey gained six.

For Turkey this was the third consecutive time they had suffered the heartache of missing out after losing the right to stage Euro 2008 to Switzerland and Austria and 2012 to Ukraine and Poland.

The Draw

The Final Draw for the 2016 European Championships took place on 12 December 2015 at the Palais des Congres de la Porte Maillot in Paris. For the first time there are 24 qualified countries. They were drawn into six groups of four teams.
