The UEFA Under 21 Championship trophy is coming to Romania and can be seen in Bucharest (May 6-7) and Cluj-Napoca (May 13-14).

In 2023, Romania hosts the #U21EURO, the most important continental tournament of the year, and the matches are played in Bucharest and Cluj-Napoca. The final UEFA Under 21 Championship tournament will start in 50 days, and will take place in Romania and Georgia between June 21 and July 8, 2023.

Bucharest will host all six matches in Group B, which includes Romania, Spain, Croatia and Ukraine, as well as a quarterfinal and a semifinal. Cluj-Napoca will host the matches of group D, which includes France, Italy, Switzerland and Norway, as well as a quarterfinal.

The most important moment before the final tournament is the arrival of the trophy in Romania, giving football fans the opportunity to admire it and take pictures with it both in Bucharest this weekend, on May 6 and 7, and in Cluj-Napoca the following weekend, on May 13 and 14.

The two locations where the trophy will be displayed have not yet been made public, with football fans having the opportunity to discover them through a game open to all, based on clues that will lead to the 2 locations. A number of personalities from Romanian football, including Ianis Hagi – the #U21EURO ambassador in Romania, will provide clues on social media for each individual city.

For each city, 5 celebrities will provide clues on their own social media channels the week the trophy arrives in Bucharest or Cluj, clues connecting the final tournament with the 2 host cities in Romania, the questions referring, among other things, to information about the present and the history of the #U21Euro.

Each of the two locations will be announced on Saturday afternoon, each week. Those who find the trophy by then will be able to win one of the 21 soccer balls, in a draw. And all those who will come to see the trophy will be able to participate, both in Bucharest and in Cluj, in a draw for a limited number of tickets to the matches of the final tournament.

On this occasion, the president of the Romanian Football Federation, Răzvan Burleanu, said: “We are very happy and proud that, together with our colleagues from Georgia, we are organizing the second major international football competition in Europe. Today, with 50 days to go until the start of the final UEFA Under21 tournament, we are generically opening the gates of the stadiums and inviting supporters to see the trophy. In June, the football show will start on the grass and I invite all of you fans to come and see very spectacular matches. And, last but not least, come and support the Romanian National Youth Team, which is in its third consecutive participation in a final tournament!”.
