Romania, the host country for the #U21EURO in 2023, the most important continental tournament of the year, has prepared a special action for football lovers: a Trophy Tour in the cities where the matches from our country will be played: Bucharest and Cluj-Napoca.

The final UEFA Under 21 Championship tournament will take place from 21 June to 8 July 2023 and will be held in Romania and Georgia.

This special action was promoted with a challenge in each city, so a number of personalities revealed clues that gave football lovers the chance to be the first to see the trophy live. The event marked 50 days until the opening of the UEFA Under 21 Championship 2023 tournament.

In Bucharest, Ianis Hagi started the relay of clues, followed by Pavel Bartoș, Otrava, Cătălin Oprișan and Cabral. In Cluj-Napoca, also Ianis Hagi, the #U21Euro ambassador in Romania, started the relay and then there were hints from Pavel Bartoș, Ionuț Rada, Ivan Anișoreac and Marius Niculae. All fans who deciphered the clues and thus found out the names of the locations where the trophy was placed could win souvenir balls, and the rest of the fans could participate in a draw with prizes consisting of tickets to matches organized in each city.

In total, in Bucharest on May 6 and 7, and in Cluj-Napoca on May 13 and 14, over a thousand supporters came to take pictures with the #U21Euro trophy.

“We are glad that we had the opportunity to offer supporters an unforgettable experience: the chance to see the trophy of the most important sports event hosted by Romania in 2023: the European U21 Championship. We saw supporters of all ages at the events in Bucharest and Cluj-Napoca, and what impressed us was the large number of families who came to see the #U21Euro trophy, a sign that such events are bringing together an ever-growing audience more broadly, this being the purpose of organizing the tournament in our country“, said Răzvan Burleanu, President of the Romanian Football Federation.

Bucharest will host six matches from the group in which Romania, Spain, Croatia and Ukraine are located, a quarter-final and a semi-final. Cluj-Napoca will host six group matches with France, Italy, Switzerland and Norway and a quarter-final.
