EURO 2024: Scholz on the start of the European Football Championship: “The more colourful, the better”

The Chancellor is hoping for a football festival at the start of the European Championships at home and is keeping his fingers crossed for the German team in the opening match. He also wants to be there live for one of the matches.

Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) is counting on a successful and diverse European Football Championship in Germany. “It’s finally starting! I wish all fans a good European Championship, exciting games and a great atmosphere in the stands, on the fan mile and in front of the television. I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for our boys this evening in the game against Scotland,” the Chancellor told “X”.

Economics Minister Robert Habeck (Greens) is getting ready for the opening match with a beer and a pink DFB jersey. “Friday is over a little earlier than usual because the European Championship is starting. There are still files to be done, but they will still be there on Monday. A great tournament for all of us,” said Habeck in a short video on Instagram.

Scholz is looking forward to a colorful sea of ​​flags, said deputy government spokesman Wolfgang Büchner on Friday in Berlin. “From his point of view, the more colorful, the better.” “In addition to black, red and gold, he is also looking forward to many other colors and flags of the tournament teams.” Germany warmly welcomes Europe and all football fans and hopes for “a celebration of solidarity,” said Büchner.

Scholz is keeping his fingers crossed for the German team and national coach Julian Nagelsmann for the opening match against Scotland and is hoping for a good start to the tournament from a German perspective. The Chancellor wants to be in the stadium for the DFB team’s last group match against Switzerland on June 23 in Frankfurt am Main, Büchner announced.

The federal government hopes for a football festival and wonderful weeks for the citizens who cheer for the German team – in the stadium, in fan zones, at home, with family, friends or in the favorite pub around the corner.
