UEFA has released a light-hearted animation showing how Skillzy, UEFA EURO 2020’s mascot, was selected after an impromptu entry into a Europe-wide talent contest.

As well as celebrating the one-year-to-go landmark for UEFA EURO 2020, the animated film mirrors the talent competition theme at the heart of Your Move: a Europe-wide competition to find the most talented freestylers, street and panna footballers to become part of the EURO 2020 mascot team.

Each of the 12 host city venues will have freestyle representatives in the mascot team – giving fans across Europe the opportunity to represent their country and be part of the celebrations.  The competition will be judged by Liv Cooke, world freestyle record holder from England, and former European Freestyle Champion, Tobias Becs, from Norway.
