Germany is the perfect host for Euro 2024, drawing football enthusiasts from around the globe. An estimated 2.7 million people are expected to visit, with a significant number coming from the UK. The tournament is anticipated to attract a cumulative live audience of over 5 billion worldwide. It will also attract a notable viewership from India.

The Euro 2024 isn’t just about football; it’s a celebration of German beer culture. Known for its rich brewing heritage, Germany offers a diverse range of beers that are integral to the football-watching experience. From light lagers to potent brews with wine-like strength, German beers are renowned for their quality and variety.

The influx of tourists for Euro 2024 is expected to provide a significant boost to the German economy. It will also particularly benefit the hospitality and food retail sectors. According to Hindustan Times, the Ifo Institute forecasts a 1 billion euro ($1.07 billion) boost, corresponding to about 0.1% of economic output in the second quarter of the year. This surge in tourism is reminiscent of the 2006 World Cup, which saw a notable increase in beer sales.
