The excitement is building ahead of Euro 2020 – and your nearest and dearest can also join in the fun!

Why not organise a sweepstake with your family, friends or colleagues to see who can claim bragging rights when the winner is crowned next month.

To set up your own sweepstake, print out the form below, cut out the names and place them into a hat or bowl.

Anyone can get involved, irrespective of experience or football knowledge.

All the organiser is required to do is set an entry fee, and the rules for the winner(s).

The organiser can set up a winner-takes-all tournament, or be more generous, with prizes for second place too.

Euro 2020 begins this week, and with 24 teams involved there are plenty of teams to go around.

What is a sweepstake?

A sweepstake is a scheme usually organised around a sporting event where participants pay a fee to play and are randomly allocated a team or individual.

If that team or individual wins their respective tournament, the participant who was allocated that team or individual usually takes the winnings – they "sweep" the "stakes".

Sometimes, the sweepstake organiser may add rules such as a prize for the runner-up, or returning entry fees for the semi-finalists.

Teams like France, England, Belgium and Portugal all seem to be good teams to have in the sweepstakes.

France are the tournament favourites, but England hold a unique advantage in that their group stage matches are all at Wembley and should Gareth Southgate's side progress beyond the quarter-finals, both the semi-final and the final will also be held at Wembley, in front of mostly English fans.

This year's Premier League demonstrated the importance of fans to football teams, with home advantage falling away without them.

With lockdown restrictions set to end during the tournament, there is a real prospect of a bouncing Wembley stadium in the sun, supporting the Three Lions, in the first major international football event in England since Euro 96.
