Maxine Cannon, General Manager Isle of Man Stamps & Coins, said:
“We are honoured to be partnering with UEFA EURO 2020™and to be able to offer an official licensed product for the tournament with our stunning and vibrant stamps.
"The tournament theme of togetherness through football is very fitting which, along with the re-introduction of fans back to stadiums, symbolises a return to normality following the difficult period of the Covid pandemic and the postponement of the tournament last summer. We wish the home nations of England, Scotland and Wales the very best of luck.”
