This 1.4-kilometer-long area along the banks of the River Main offers plenty of seating, food and drink stands, special activities, and more.

The Ball is Round Euro 2024 Group Stage

Group E

Travel to Belgium Belgium 0-1 Slovakia Travel to Slovakia

Ivan Schranz gave Slovakia an early lead against Belgium, getting on to the rebound after an unfortunate Jeremy Doku gifted the ball to Juraj Kucka; who saw his effort pushed away by Koen Casteels.

With four minutes left to play, VAR cancelled out a Lukaku goal; for the second time in this match.

Thursday, 20th June

Group C

Travel to Denmark Denmark 1-1 England Travel to England

Kyle Walker's pace down the right was astounding, the cross into the middle ricocheted a little, but Harry Kane was there to score his 64th goal for England.

All the good work was undone when, instead of pushing on for a second, sloppy England passing, a failure to press Denmark, and lazy defensive positioning resulted in Sporting Lisbon's Morten Hjulmand seeing the opportunity for a long range effort; in off the post past Jordan Pickford.

Sunday, 23rd June

Group A

Travel to Switzerland Switzerland 1-1 Germany Travel to Germany

The hosts thought they took the lead in the 17th minute through Robert Andrich, but an official look at the big screen ruled the goal out; as Jamal Musiala had crashed into Swiss defender Michel Aebischer during the build-up.

Ten minutes later, it was Switzerland's goal getting a second look on VAR, but Dan Ndoye wasn't to be disappointed. Within a minute later, the Bologna forward almost added a second.

Switzerland almost made it two just before the end; but Ruben Vargas was flagged for offside: tight, but right.

The stadium erupted when Niclas Füllkrug equalised for Germany in the last minute of stoppage time.
