This summer, sport is being celebrated all across Europe - with the EURO2020 football championships being held in 11 different cities across Europe, and 24 different countries have taken part in the tournament.

We at Europeana are celebrating too - highlighting sport heritage and history, and inviting people all across Europe to share their memories and experiences of taking part in sport - whether as participants or fans or both.

History as it happens

We like to record history as it happens, that's why we'd like to build a picture of how Europe celebrates EURO2020 in 2021.

That leads us to a favour we want to ask of you! Show us how you are celebrating Euro 2020.

We would love to see your photos showing how your home, your village, town or city celebrates EURO2020. Are streets adorned with bunting and flags? Are there posters cheering on your nation's team? How are fans celebrating?

How to take part

You can share your photos with us in a few ways. You can:
