Kuoni, which was the official accommodation agency for Uefa Euro 2008 in Austria and Switzerland, will be offering accommodation services to the participating teams, match officials, commercial partners, media representatives, broadcast partners, suppliers and the staff involved in the organisation.

More than 250,000 room nights are expected to be organised during the final tournament itself. Kuoni is strongly represented in France through its network of agencies.

Uefa Euro 2016 will be the first edition to showcase 24 teams and the 51 matches of the final tournament will be played across 10 stadia in France between 1 June - 10 July.

Jacques Lambert, president of Euro 2016 S.A.S, said: "It is very important for the tournament that everyone feels at home in all the accommodation facilities provided. France is renowned worldwide for its high hospitality standard, and we are pleased to work with an organisation that is deeply rooted in our country and that has an excellent reputation in the international tourism sector."

Stefan Egli, head of destination Europe for Kuoni, added: "Kuoni is proud to be part of such a prestigious event for the second time, and we are looking forward to making our contribution to a successful Uefa Euro 2016. We are confident that we can prove our professionalism and knowledge to both the Uefa family and our future international customers by closely cooperating with the French accommodation market."
