The Under 21 Euro Cup 2021 is taking place in eight host cities. The 2021 edition of the UEFA Under-21 European Championship is set to begin on March 24th.

The event will be co-hosted by Hungary and Slovenia, and will conclude on June 6th.

There will be a total of 16 teams that will be played in eight different host cities. The tournament was originally slated for June of 2021, though things were moved around due to the Euro 2020 tournament being shifted to this year.

Group stage play will run from March 24th to 31st. After that, knockout stage play will run from May 31st to June 6th.
