UEFA Euro 2024 Mascot

The official mascot for UEFA EURO 2024 has been named Albärt following a vote conducted among UEFA.com users and schoolchildren across Europe, through the UEFA Football in Schools programme.

The teddy bear follows in the illustrious oversized footsteps of the likes of Berni, Goaliath, Rabbit and Kinas, all of whom were mascots at EURO final tournaments. Bärnardo, Bärnheart and Herzi von Bär (all puns on the German word for bear) were also shortlisted as names for the mascot, but Albärt won out with 32% of the vote.
