The 16th edition of the largest national football tournament for the major continental male team was organised by UEFA in 2021. To mark this event San Marino Post issued a special stamp. The stamp illustrates two players engaged in a game action while strip portrays four players who are trying to hit the ball.

The tournament took place for the first time in an itinerant competition: 12 European cities including Rome hosted the matches. The UEFA European football championship was the first European mega-event to take place in post-socialist Europe. It was created in France in 1960, the UEFA EURO had a long history as it will hold its 16th competition next year making its 60th birthday.
