Germany has won the right to stage the Euro 2024 football championships.

On Thursday, Uefa voted to hand the event to Germany over Turkey, the only other bidder for the event, during a meeting at the headquarters of European football’s governing body in Nyon, Switzerland.

Over the weekend, German club football teams stood in front of placards before matches supporting the bid, but fans in the stands of many stadiums launched protests to voice opposition and complain about the commercialisation of the game.
