Euro 2016: Key Facts

by Felix Richter, Statista.com

-- this post authored by Martin Armstrong

France and Romania got us underway on Friday at the opening game of Euro 2016.

The hosts took away the three points after initially struggling to get off the mark in the first half and requiring a wonder strike from West Ham man Dimitri Payet to break the 1-1 deadlock in the 89th minute. Nevertheless, the home fans went home satisfied, if not a also little relieved, from the Stade de France.

The Stade de France is the largest stadium used for the tournament with a capacity of 80,000. Due to there being 24 teams involved instead of the usual 16 there have also been more stadia drafted in for the extra games. As a result, the smallest stadium has a relatively small capacity of 35,575 - the Stade Municipal in Toulouse.

Like all major sports tournaments, Euro 2016 is a big money maker. With an expected 150 million people watching each game, TV rights will create 784 million British pounds (1 billion euro) of revenue.

This chart presents key facts for the Euro 2016 tournament.
