The atmosphere in Germany on the eve of the Euro

Despite recent disappointing performances, there’s widespread hope that the country will experience the same festive atmosphere as during the 2006 World Cup. Tournament director Philipp Lahm wants Euro 2024 to leave a lasting impact. He has a vision for Euro 2024. He sees it as a platform for the players to unite and play with passion and commitment for the national team. Furthermore, he believes that this unity, this shared sense of purpose, is what has been lacking and can propel the team to success.
The sporting director of the German Football Association, Rudi Feller, criticized the lack of enthusiasm for the European Championship. In his opinion, especially little attention was paid to this event in political circles. Föller emphasized the potential of the tournament to be as successful as the 2006 World Cup. After all, according to the sports director, it was this event that demonstrated Germany as a hospitable and open country. He also emphasized the role of politics in ensuring the success of the tournament.

How Euro 2024 has influenced local football culture

When a country gets the right to host the European Championship, it becomes a prestigious privilege for it. Such an event draws maximum attention to this country from all over the world. Moreover, this tournament gives rise to processes that have a lasting impact on football culture. After all, it shapes the sport for years.
First of all, it is worth noting that Germany is undergoing significant infrastructure development for the tournament. It all starts with the reconstruction of iconic stadiums and the expansion of the public transport network. In addition, Germany is making investments that will benefit the event and the local community long after the tournament.
Second, the Euro stimulates future investment in sports. The increased funding will benefit youth academies and the overall football infrastructure. When a country invests money in the development of a particular sport, it enables small youth teams and national teams to flourish and ultimately create a healthy and sporting nation.
In addition, the influx of fans, media and international attention during the Euros brings significant economic benefits. Revenues from ticket sales, tourism and press rights contribute to the development of the local economy. After all, hosting all the matches creates jobs and new opportunities.
Euro brings only positive changes. It fuels the national football fervor and invests in its future and infrastructure improvements. Euro 2024 promises to change German football culture for generations and influence European football in general.

How Euro will contribute to the development of tourism

Euro is expected to increase tourism in the country significantly. Although the "Barcelona Effect," where a single event dramatically changes a city's tourism landscape, may be rare, large-scale sporting events such as the Euros consistently contribute to significant tourism growth in host countries. Here is how Euro 2024 can significantly affect German tourism:

  • Expected number of visitors. Millions of football enthusiasts from Europe will flock to Germany during the tournament. Forecasts indicate that more than 2.7 million stadium attendees and a further 7 million fans attend public viewing events. It might lead to an unprecedented flood of visitors.
  • Economic benefits. This inflow of tourists translates into significant economic benefits. Germany is expected to receive an additional €250 million in tourism revenue. It'll boost hotels, restaurants, and a variety of tourism-related businesses.
  • Increased exposure. Such a prestigious event as Euro 2024 puts Germany in the global spotlight. The extensive media coverage and international attention associated with the tournament highlight the country's beauty and tourist attractions.
  • Changing perspectives. Euro 2024 could change Germany's international perception. In addition to its industrial potential, the tournament showcases the country's vibrant cities. Potentially, it might draw in a more comprehensive range of visitors in the future.
  • Infrastructure improvements. Germany improves transport networks and renovates stadiums. These advancements will not only benefit the tournament itself but also improve the overall visitor experience for years to come.

Although the "Barcelona effect" may be a unique phenomenon, Euro 2024 is set to leave a lasting impact on German tourism. The immediate influx of visitors and the positive long-term perception of the tournament will undoubtedly contribute to Germany's steady growth as a leading tourist destination.
