Isle of Man Post Office is delighted to present the official licensed stamp collection in celebration of UEFA EURO 2020 . Founded in 1958, the tournament takes place every four years and is regarded as the finest display of European football. This issue celebrates the reintroduction of fans back into stadiums as well as a theme of togetherness across Europe through football.
Postponed in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the tournament will take place from 11th June – 11th July 2021, attracting the attention of a live audience of 5 billion viewers across Europe and the world.
UEFA EURO 2020 is being held across the continent for the first time in the competition's 60-year history, with action unfolding across 11 host cities. Amsterdam, Baku, Bucharest, Budapest, Copenhagen, Glasgow, London, Munich, Rome, Seville and St. Petersburg all play host to the festival of football.
Our stamp designs celebrate the ways through which football can bring people together, following a theme of connection and unity during a time in which such privileges have been taken away. The stamps beautifully utilise the official UEFA EURO 2020 artwork of host stadiums as well as iconic landmarks and scenery from eight host cities. In addition to this, the stamps are linked by a football pitch themed pathway as well as bridges, connecting fans across Europe through football.
