The opening ceremony will see the tournament's official song "We Are the People" played live for the first time.
Dutch DJ Martin Garrix is the composer of the track, which features U2 lead vocalist Bono and fellow band member Edge.
The 25-year-old had this to say about producing the song:

The ceremony this year will be far from the scenes of the opening ceremony five years ago at Euro 2016, which saw a packed Stade de France officially open the tournament in Paris.
French DJ David Guetta opened the tournament with Zara Larsson as they performed "This One's For You" - the official song of Euro 2016.

Dimitri Payet's 89th minute winner that day saw hosts France beat Romania 2-1 on their way to the final, which they eventually lost to Portugal in extra time.
Roberto Mancini's Italy will be hoping to repeat the feat this year following the opening ceremony in Rome, although Italy are not the only host nation.
This year the sixtieth anniversary of the first European Championships sees the continent of Europe host the tournament, with eleven cities in eleven different countries hosting games.

Texas woman is held at gunpoint and robbed in her home while her coworkers watch in horror on Zoom call: Three suspects arrested
The frightening episode unfolded on Friday at around 2.15pm when Adrian Guillen, 19, and an unnamed 15-year-old girl allegedly stormed into the unidentified victim's house in San Antonio.
Police said Guillen held the woman at gunpoint in her bedroom, demanded she had over valuables and ransacked the home as her colleagues watched in horror.
The colleagues immediately called police but officers failed to arrive before the teenager and Guillen, who already had an active capital murder warrant out of Bandera County, fled the scene in a white Honda Accord driven by 39-year-old Jaime Trevino.

A police helicopter tracked the suspects to another house about 12 miles away where they allegedly began working to open a safe they'd stolen from the woman's home.
They took everything from the safe and put it in their vehicle before driving to the nearby Oyo Hotel, where they began to unload the stolen property.
Police arrived at the hotel and arrested the suspects without any incident.RELATED ARTICLES

Guillen was charged with aggravated robbery and theft between $2,500 and $30,000.
Bexar County jail records shows he is being held on a $1million bond for the murder charge.
Jaime Trevino was also charged with aggravated robbery and theft between $2,500 and $30,000, and is being held on a $175,000 bond.
