The 23-year-old revealed the news while performing a headline show in his home town of Amsterdam, one of the 12 host cities for next summer’s finals.
During his sold-out gig at Amsterdam RAI today, Dutch superstar DJ and producer Martin Garrix provided an unexpected news by walking out with the famous Henri Delaunay Cup – the trophy that the winner of UEFA EURO 2020 will receive – as the giant screens behind him confirmed he would be the Official Music Artist of next year’s tournament.
Official Music Artist of UEFA EURO 2020
The song will be revealed in spring 2020 – and so too a collaboration with a singer. The song will be performed in full for the first time at the UEFA EURO 2020 opening ceremony at the Olimpico in Rome on 12 June 2020.
“ It’s an incredible honour to be asked to create the official song for UEFA EURO 2020 and I am so excited to let everyone hear it. Next summer’s tournament will take the fans closer to the action than ever before, and I really hope that my song will make everyone in Europe feel like they are part of it. It’s crazy to think that UEFA EURO 2020 will be held across 12 different cities but it’s the perfect way to celebrate 60 years of this incredible competition. Music is my passion but I’m also a huge football fan, so it’s extra special for me to be able to create the official song for what will be the biggest EURO in history. ” – Martin Garrix
Alongside the official song, Martin will also produce the official walkout music, as well as music for use in all official broadcasts. Music and football fans can win a meeting with Martin Garrix at the UEFA EURO 2020 final draw in Bucharest on 30 November.
