The votes for the draw:
Joachim Loew, National Coach
With the draw, a tournament takes shape. If we know our opponents and other possible constellations, we will be able to enter into concrete future plans. I am very calm, we take it as it comes.
Fritz Keller, President of the DFB
Our anticipation for EURO 2020 is huge. Not only because our national team has qualified with convincing performances as the first group for the European Championship, but also because we want to be an excellent and warm host with Munich. It is a wonderful prospect for the DFB to do its part, both sporting and organizational, to make the tournament a celebration of football.
Philipp Lahm, captain of 2014 world champion and general manager of DFB EURO GmbH
I look forward to the games in Munich. We are part of a big European project and we will present ourselves well. Munich is a big city and there is no better stadium for me than the Fußball Arena München. For us DFB EURO GmbH, the games are also a valid test for the tournament in four years, for which we have developed many projects. Sporting, organizational, but also beyond.
