From branded buses to replica goal nets, the 24 teams at EURO 2024 have every essential at their fingertips – all thanks to UEFA's team services unit.

Success at a UEFA EURO can come down to the finest of margins, and getting things right off the pitch can make all the difference to results on it.

The preparation phase started over two years ago, long before any teams other than hosts Germany had even qualified.

One of the first and most important steps concerned the team base camps, the homes-from-home for the 24 finalists for the duration of the tournament. Teams were initially presented with 56 potential locations via a catalogue. Once the final choices were confirmed, each base camp was kitted out with the equipment needed to mount a successful challenge.

This logistical support starts with transport – each team is provided with seven vehicles including a specially branded bus – and extends to balls (50 per team), bibs (100 per team), medical bags (two per team), spinning bikes (five per dressing room per stadium), drinks (300 per team per day) and training equipment such as cones, hurdles, slalom poles and free-kick walls.

Attention is paid to the smallest details. For example, the goal nets and corner flags at the team training ground are exact replicas of those found at the match stadiums. In addition, the shipment of material between base camps and match venues is handled by tournament sponsor FedEx, who provided the same services at EURO 2016 and EURO 2020.
