German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban will attend the Euro 2024 group match between Germany and Hungary in Stuttgart on June 19.

The state ministry in Baden-Württemberg, where Stuttgart is located, confirmed their travel plans on Tuesday.

Orbán will also attend Hungary’s final group match against Scotland in Stuttgart on June 23.

High-ranking guests from the team’s respective countries are also expected to attend other matches and receptions, according to Baden-Württemberg Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann.

Germany starts the tournament against Scotland on Friday, while Hungary first faces Switzerland on Saturday.

Hungary’s two matches against Germany and Scotland are considered high-risk matches by security forces as the Hungarian hooligan scene is of particular concern.
