The group stage will run from Friday, June 11 to Wednesday, June 23 with the knockout matches starting the following Saturday.

How many yellow cards result in a suspension?

According to UEFA’s Article 52, a player is suspended for the next match after picking up two yellow cards in two different matches.

A player will also be suspended if they pick up a fourth caution in four different matches.

A red card results in an automatic one-match suspension at any time throughout the tournament.

When do yellow cards reset?

Single cautions in Euro 2020 will reset on completion of the quarter-finals of the tournament.

The yellow cards will not be carried forward into the semi-finals.

All cautions and pending yellow-card suspensions in Euro 2020 will expire once the tournament is complete.
