Adopt a Nation

Once we know which nations will face each other after the Final Draw on 5 April, we will be encouraging schools to 'adopt a nation' and get behind one of the teams you will be watching. Pupils will be able to learn more about the nation's culture and be in with a chance of hosting a visit from your adopted nation's team once they have arrived in England.

  • Adults £4
