The 1968 UEFA European Football Championship final tournament was held in Italy.
This was the third European Football Championship, an event held every four years and endorsed by UEFA.
The final tournament took place between June 5 and June 10, 1968. It was in this year that the tournament changed its name from European Nations Cup to European Championship.
There were also some changes in the tournament’s qualifying structure, with the two-legged home-and-away knock-out stage being replaced by a group phase. At the time, only four countries could play the final tournament which meant that there were only the semi-finals, the final and the third place match. The hosts were only announced after the qualifying round, which meant that they had to qualify along with all the others for the final stage.
