The UEFA European Championships Tournament
Running since 1960, The UEFA Championships have undergone some name changes but the format has stayed relatively similar since its inception.
Like The World Cup, teams need to qualify and all eligible teams play off in leagues for the privilege of playing in the tournament. Again, similar to the World Cup different nations will bid for the honour of holding the tournament.
The tournament has grown over the years and there are now spaces for 24 teams to compete. This saw teams competing in six groups of four where the winners and runners automatically made it through to the knockout stages. They were joined by four of the best placed 3rd positioned teams.
The last 16 games then lead on to the quarter finals, semi finals and final all in a knockout style competition.
